For some cloud customers, it is important for end customers to have self-serve management tools that help them to distribute and assign IP addresses even for their private networks.
With Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator’s network orchestration, service providers benefit from not having to touch their network equipment whenever their customers request a new network – whether public or private. While the IP address space management for public networks has been a key feature for long, now service providers can offer their customers the ability to choose, assign and manage their own subnets also for their private networks.
Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, operations, and scaling of containerized applications. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.
Although once Kubernetes is up and running it allows you to operate microservices on your cluster easily and very effectively, launching Kubernetes in the first place can present some very real challenges. For starters, you need to familiarize yourself with Kubernetes concepts, install and configure the Kubectl CLI and set up nodes with sufficient capacity. You need to set up intra-cluster networking, obtain the relevant Kubernetes binaries and images such as etcd and Docker and prepare security certs and credentials. Furthermore, you will need to configure and install the base software on the nodes (Docker, kubelet etc.), bootstrap the cluster and finally start the services.
