A while ago, your enterprise decided to begin deploying Kubernetes. Given its reputation for ease-of-use and stability, you were enthusiastic and confident you could get things into production quickly and reliably — using in-house resources, doing it yourself — DIY. After all, there were so many free, open-source tools, and the developers couldn’t wait!
However, over time, your Kubernetes journey didn’t turn out exactly as planned. You knew you’d be learning a lot, but not this much. You found out that Kubernetes is one thing when developers are creating an app but is quite complex and time-consuming when you’re putting clusters into production.
