The presentation discusses the benefits of using Kubernetes for data management and application migration in a multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environment.
- Kubernetes allows for faster innovation and simplified management of stateful workloads
- A cloud-native data management solution can improve software releases and increase revenue
- Infrastructure-agnostic and policy-driven solutions are necessary for successful application migration
- Data volumes should be managed as first-class citizens and data staging capabilities are important for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments
The presentation describes Acme Corp, a social media organization that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning for data intelligence. They have a multi-cloud hybrid cloud approach and want to go full-blown Kubernetes with a cloud-native first approach. Their goals include security, self-service, more frequent releases, reduced cloud spend, compliance, and quick recovery from outages. The presentation uses Acme Corp as an example to illustrate the benefits of using Kubernetes for data management and application migration.
