The panelists discussed the following topics:
What are the real issues that companies are facing as they grapple with building and operating distributed infrastructure? How are CI/CD automation and consistent deployments address the needs in the new world of distributed clouds?
Strategies for enabling app portability
How can companies enable app portability and abstraction of diverse and complex infrastructure landscape? How to address the vendor lock-in issue (expressed by 61% of the participants)? What is the importance of open source and how it can help reduce vendor lock-in?
Addressing operational concerns at scale
The survey revealed top concerns as consistent management across multiple clusters and clouds, high availability (uptime and SLA), cost optimization, observability, and troubleshooting. 91% of the participants had concerns spanning day-2 operations, security. What are some emerging cloud-native and automated ways of addressing some of these issues especially at distributed scale?
The rising importance of hybrid and on-premises deployment
Even as public cloud adoption is growing, the survey shows almost 67% of the deployments are still on-premises in private data centers and the edge. What are some strategies for hybrid deployments as companies move some of their workloads to the public clouds? How should that impact their container management strategy?
