Docker + Kubernetes

Shipment using containers is not only about real goods which are transported from one country to another. Nowadays in IT world the most progressive companies ship and deploy software with the help of special containers. Code base, libraries and algorithms are packed together in the image as a complete unit. Then it is all being delivered to a running machine.

This process of delivering software is efficient, fast and devoid of unexpected errors. Such approach is becoming deeply penetrated in IT sphere and is a symbol of future development. And surely we use it for our projects.

Here we will tell you how to start working with containers and which software to utilize for it!

Have an idea? Let’s discuss!

At first step here comes Docker. Its main purpose is to help you to deploy software using containers. Docker is an open source technology that helps you build, ship and run applications automatically.

It is very useful when we speak about little quantity of containers (using Docker-compose) and small quantity of machines to run on. But if we need to run multiple containers across several machines it seems that we need something different. In order to reduce manual work while running multiple containers it is better to use Kubernetes. Kubernetes is an open source platform, which brings order to shipment of huge quantity of pods. It helps to start all pods at the right time, manage their cooperation with each other, reduce unexpected fails, machine (Node) management.

Using Docker + Kubernetes is a big advantage

  • Docker helps you to build, delivery and run applications using containers. That’s why your code will be delivered to necessary platform fast and clear.
  • Don’t be aware of safety because Docker provides you a very high level of security. It is because every container we create is isolated from other ones.
  • Here comes Kubernetes when it is necessary to run a large amount of pods on multiple machines at the same time. It reduces manual work to extremely low indices.
  • Kubernetes also great thing which can help you to scale your deployment by creating or deleting pods when it is needed.
  • With these two technologies you can create a stable microservice architecture.

The best way of using these technologies and make profit is to use them both: Docker as build and delivery system, and Kubernetes (K8s) as orchestration. We utilize Kubernetes and Docker both for different projects, because it is efficient, safe and reduces manual work for deployment to zero.

We prefer using managed Kubernetes for AWS cloud - EKS and for GCP - GKE. It also provides HA (high availability) out of the box.



Why do we prefer Docker + Kubernetes?

Running applications in containers is one of the fastest growing technologies in IT industry nowadays. We always stay in touch with all recent, modern and the most useful flows in software development. That’s why we prefer to utilize Docker and Kubernetes in our portfolio. These both technologies provide us the values which are highly appreciated by developers and customers. Using Docker and Kubernetes we can deploy our applications fast, securely and efficiently manage its’ architectures.

Be sure, developing your project we will use these both progressive technologies. We know how to turn your ideas into reality!

CTO, Medignition Inc

We wanted to implement a new education platform that offered online courses in finance. The scope focused on the implementation of multiple user interfaces. UpsilonIT used React, GraphQL, and GatsbyJS. UpsilonIT had strong coding skills. The app had a clean codebase and complied with all specifications. They complied with our requirements for the UI. We communicated daily via Slack.

Upsilon’s work was always on time and met all customer expectations. Their team had an ease of communication but what was the most impressive about them is the integrity and work ethic of each member. We had a business manager, a lead architect, and a mix of senior and regular engineers. The workflow was extremely effective - the teams had a regular cadence for communication.
