Canonical has released survey data revealing the goals, benefits, and challenges of cloud-native technologies. The report surveyed more than 1,300 IT professionals over the past year about their use of Kubernetes, bare metal, virtual machines, containers, and serverless applications.
According to the survey, Kubernetes and cloud-native technologies unleash innovation for organizations and enable them to achieve their goals. But the benefits of cloud-native technologies vary based on their use and the maturity of the organizations using them, with elasticity and agility, resource optimization, and reduced service costs identified as key benefits. , and safety the most important consideration.
Nearly 50% of respondents cited lack of internal skills and limited workforce as the top challenges when migrating to or using Kubernetes and containers.
Ken Sipe, Senior Enterprise Architect and Co-President of Operator SDK, comments, “When people cite lack of skills as a barrier, the truth is that they’re often already in an environment where they’re ready to do the next thing but don’t have the infrastructural or organizational support to do it It’s also a matter of buying versus building: when buying a solution and associated service, a organization benefits from utilizing external resources and skills without having to develop the capability internally When building internally, the organization can benefit from implementing its engineering discipline, which could be a useful differentiator.
