Automate the deployment, management and scalability of applications with Kubernetes. Easily build cloud-native microservice applications and migrate all existing projects into containers for more efficiency and resiliency. Kubernetes can handle complex tasks of container orchestration, such as deployment, service discovery, rolling upgrades, self-healing, and security management.
Kubernetes can help organizations streamline the deployment of new applications, simplify container and resource management, reduce upgrade risks, and eliminate downtime. It can scale application components individually or as a group and support portable, cloud-based applications.
The containerized environment allows automatically scale up or down the infrastructure and provides load distribution to scaled containers.
Multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, single cloud or-on premise Kubernetes makes it easier to unify.
Faster Time to Market
Containerization gives you the agility to move much faster with software delivery.
One of the superpowers of containerization is the fantastic community around cloud-native tools.
First, select your package or pay as you go model. Then, when your package or model starts to be actively used, you just need to activate the "Kubernetes" service. You only pay as much as the month you use it and fixed price for unlimited usage.
- Unlimited use
- No commitment

Automated deployment, autoscaling, automatic discovery of new nodes, and automated updates.
High density, efficient resource usage and elasticity while running with containers inside containers (nested) architecture.
Pay-per-Use pricing.Automatic scaling with payment based on the real consumption, not on a server size.
Multi-cloud hybrid deployments. Provision the Kubernetes clusters across multiple clouds and on-premise with full interoperability and no vendor lock-in.
Automatically scale them vertically and horizontally easily achieving high availability.
Built-in GitLab CI/CD pipeline and storage.AutoDevOps helps to establish a CI/CD pipeline that automatically detects, builds, tests, and deploys the projects.
Kubernetes, or K8s for short, is an open source container orchestration tool. Used to manage clusters of container applications. This is a process known in the computing world as 'orchestration'. Kubernetes automates the operational tasks of container management and has commands for deploying applications, rolling out changes to your applications (automotic rollback), scaling your applications up and down to suit changing needs, monitoring your applications (health-checks), and more. It makes it easy to manage apps from anywhere. In short, it takes care of most of the work that goes into deploying and managing your applications, reducing the time, resources and costs associated with your day-to-day operations.
Containers are a good way to get your applications together and running. In a production environment, you need to manage the containers running applications and ensure there are no downtime. Kubernetes gives you a framework to run distributed systems flexibly. It takes care of scaling and failover for your application, provides deployment models and more. It makes it easy for an organization's applications to have greater scalability and be flexible, portable and more productive. Also, if your application is migrating to a microservice architecture or if you are developing an application that follows the microservice architecture, Kubernetes should be your choice.
Docker is an open source platform used to run software development. Its main benefit is that it packs the settings and dependencies that the software/application needs to run in a container, which provides portability and some other benefits. Kubernetes allows manual mounting and editing of several containers running on multiple hosts built using Docker.
Docker Swarm is an open source container orchestration tool for clustering and programming Docker containers developed within Docker. There are the following differences between Kubernetes and Docker Swarm.
- While Docker Swarm provides the advantage of easier installation, it lags behind Kubernetes in terms of durability. Kubernetes requires more cumbersome setups, but is much more robust.
- Unlike Kubernetes, Docker Swarm does not have auto-scaling features. However, scaling with Docker Swarm is 5x faster than with Kubernetes.
- While Docker Swarm does not offer any graphical interface, dashboard, Kubernetes does provide this feature.
- Docker and Kubernetes both have automatic load distribution. (automatic load balancing)
- Docker needs additional tools for recording and monitoring, while Kubernetes has built-in tools.
- Docker Swarm can easily share storage spaces with any container, while Kubernetes can only share between containers in the same pod. Pods are the smallest units of account that can be opened and managed with Kubernetes. (Pod is the unit consisting of one or more groups of containers, sharing common network and storage areas, and defining how the containers will work)
- While Docker can "roll update" and not auto-rollback, Kubernetes can "rolling update" and automatic rollback.
There is a maximum of 5000 nodes (VMs) you can orchestrate with DT Kubernetes.
Kubernetes is billed prepaid per cluster.
