AWS Container Day ft. Kubernetes Partner Panel Reaction Blog

I had the pleasure of representing Armory along with other tech leaders from Rafay, Sedai, and Nirmata for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Container Day partner panel (ft. Kubernetes) on April 18, 2023 at 12:30 pm CEST. This digital event ran concurrently with KubeConEU  

We discussed the k8s community, the future of Kubernetes, and some challenges and opportunities in the space along with our host, Corey Quinn, Cloud Economist from The Duckbill Group. 

View a livestream of this session and read a recap of my thoughts below. You can sign-up to view the entire partner panel, as well as the rest of the AWS Container Day programming, at this link.

From my perspective, a rising tide raises all boats. A strong, vibrant open source Kubernetes community creates more opportunities for companies of all sizes to connect, share expertise, and solve problems together. At Armory, we make investments in experts who attract others who need our expertise. Our competitive advantage is our technology and expertise that solves problems that open source can’t (or won’t!) fix. 

Kubernetes has to mature. Scalability. Multi-environment, multi-cloud orchestration. Consistency. Security and governance. These are all challenges for Kubernetes users right now, especially at large and complex organizations. I believe that, with help from solutions like Armory’s Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service, the community will continue to address and solve these challenges together.

Across the Kubernetes ecosystem, we see the shift from imperative to declarative deployments. Declarative deployments make life easier for developers and produce better outcomes for the business, faster. We see a shift left to GitOps, democratizing the ability to use Kubernetes for developers across the organization and not just in the hands of a few rockstar devs. 

This was a fun session and I’m thrilled to have been a part of it! Feel free to reach out if you’d like to discuss any of the topics we covered in the panel.
