News about Kubernetes, Cloud-Native and Multi-Tenancy.

The Cloud-Native methodology has been widely adopted, with Kubernetes, acting as the framework for achieving it. Start-ups and mid-size companies began using it mostly to achieve horizontal scaling to serve traffic spikes. Now, the enterprise world has crossed the adoption chasm, selecting Kubernetes as the de-facto standard for the Cloud. That is good news!

Unfortunately, the rapid and effortless adoption of Kubernetes, with its “one tenant one cluster” architecture, has resulted in many cases with cluster sprawl problems, where large amounts of clusters get deployed as each organization needs their own tenant. This sprawl then causes significant operational challenges as well as poor infrastructure utilization, driving up costs.
