The latest from Magalix on containers, Machine learning and next-gen cloud services

Magalix is about helping companies and developers find the right balance between performance and capacity inside their kubernetes clusters. So, we are big Kubernetes fans. We went through lots of pains and learning cycles to make Kubernetes work properly for our needs. Those experiences also helped us a lot to empathize with our customers. Building fully containerized and building fully elastic Kubernetes managed microservices is hard and still requires a lot of legwork.

Switching from traditional Vms to containerized applications can bring major upgrades in efficiency and reliability. But if you handle your containers incorrectly, you’ll be throwing all those benefits out the window – and frustrating your users in the process!

If your organization is still dealing with the provisioning headaches of traditional VM architecture, it’s probably time to make the switch to containers.

Although containers present many advantages over traditional VM architecture, they also come with a number of inherent risks – some of which are elevated beyond those of a conventional VM environment.

Containers have completely changed the web development game. Ever since the release of Docker in March 2013, the concept of running services inside containers has exploded in popularity. Every time we talk with a developer in any tech sector, the topic of containers is just about guaranteed to come up.

But while containers do offer some distinct advantages over traditional VMs – for example, the ability to isolate CPU and network bandwidth from the rest of the operating system – containerized apps don’t provide a one-stop fix for all your provisioning frustrations.

Containers are just a different way to run applications — but in the end, they need to serve your business’s goals.

On the first day at my previous job, my manager asked whether we were getting a good return on investment (ROI) from our cloud infrastructure. After just two days on the job, I could clearly see that we weren’t. Our VM’s CPUs were running at five percent on average, and memory was running below 40 percent.

Even though the public cloud sparked a lot of innovation in scalable infrastructure, it failed to transform or reinvent how infrastructure and applications are built. We still need to deal with the same old constructs including virtual machines, complex networking topologies, and connecting different layers together.

We are now at a very interesting time in the history of computing where infrastructure and applications are being redefined. It is sparking the new generation of cloud infrastructure.
