Kubernetes has completely changed the way modern DevOps works. It has brought performance optimization and cost reductions to a wide range of projects and apps. The future of Kubernetes seems to be brimming with new possibilities and innovation. It’s safe to predict that Kubernetes will continue to grow in popularity in the coming years.
Containerization has revolutionized the development of modern apps. With the help of containers, more and more teams are adopting intelligent application designs like micro services to divide their apps down into readily managed units.
According to RedHat’s “The State of Enterprise Open Source” report, 85 percent of IT executives believe Kubernetes is extremely important to cloud-native application initiatives. But how did Kubernetes gain traction in a world where virtual machines (VMs) and hypervisors were the norm?
Kubernetes use has been steadily increasing across the industry. As per Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s “Cloud Native 2020 Survey”, 91% of respondents reported using Kubernetes. This shows a steady increase in use, up from 78% in 2019 and 58% in 2018.
It’s critical to understand the factors that lead to this trend and its impact on the market.
Kubernetes provides engineering teams several reasons to switch to Kubernetes from their traditional non-containerized deployment setups. Here are some of the prominent reasons for this shift.
To say Kubernetes is capable of container orchestration is an understatement; it does so much more.
Interaction with raw containers is no longer required with Kubernetes. Businesses don’t have to worry about balancing incoming requests or keeping track of resource consumption to avoid excess usage.
The days of manually on boarding a new machine into a server cluster and expanding the workload into it are long gone. All of this is handled automatically by Kubernetes.
Businesses can instantly request extra computing capacity based on their demands and availability thanks to Kubernetes’ abstraction of available hardware resources. It only takes a few clicks to juggle resource limits between teams; Kubernetes does the grunt work of shifting containers and pods around.

Kubernetes excels in optimizing the cost-to-value ratio for businesses, in addition to making container orchestration a breeze. According to Pure Storage’s “2021 Kubernetes Adoption Survey,” 55 percent of IT professionals expect Kubernetes to lower their annual costs by 20% or more. This is due to two important factors.
The first is that containers require fewer resources than virtual computers to run. The second reason is that Kubernetes uses container orchestration to help teams make the most of their available resources.
One of the main reasons Kubernetes has been able to dominate its industry is that it has been developed aggressively. The Kubernetes ecosystem has been updated on a regular basis to meet changing market demands.
Over time, major cloud providers have released tools and services that make it easier to get started with Kubernetes and better manage it. Kubernetes has had a huge impact in the industry, and experts believe Kubernetes is here to stay, as seen by the release of more and more enterprise tools in the area.
Kubernetes has significantly changed the way businesses design and scale apps. Distributed architectures are now possible and popular thanks to Kubernetes. Several businesses have reduced their operating costs and made the most of their resources.

Kubernetes has simplified DevOps and given software teams more control over how their apps are deployed.
While Kubernetes has a rich history, it also appears to have a bright future. In the future, businesses can expect improved security and lightweight Kubernetes distributions. Kubernetes is also being used to test IoT and smart systems, which is a completely new and uncharted territory for the technology.
