- Why Fairwinds
Amazon EKS, GKE and AKS have solved how to easily set up Kubernetes Clusters. It’s your responsibility to get your clusters configured correctly and effectively leveraged.
Fairwinds is the Kubernetes enablement company. Our SRE team has already done the hard work for you. You benefit from more time working on your application or services; less time spent on Kubernetes infrastructure deployment and management.
When deploying your first or tenth cluster on a managed Kubernetes service, there are decisions to make at the beginning. The wrong choice could require a time consuming cluster rebuild or have network or cost consequences.
Fairwinds helps you make the right choices for your cluster. We help your design and advise on choices not mutable after cluster creation.
Kubernetes Best Practice Design Considerations
Planning for HA
Where you should put your Kubernetes cluster in varies on your application. Our experts know what tends to have better availability region by region. Fairwinds helps you plan for HA by advising on the right region, and availability zones to best meet your business needs.
Services by Region
Services available by cloud providers vary region by region. Fairwinds understands the differences and helps you avoid selecting a region that doesn’t have the container registry, cloud scheduler, or secrets manager you needed. Our team helps you avoid tearing down clusters and rebuilding.
When engineers have an API with Kubernetes that makes sense, and workflows for deployments that they can understand, they can own the services they build all the way through to production. The old way of shipping software required an operations team to take the service and ship it through to production, making sure it was up and running. The wrong setup with Kubernetes requires you to maintain that old paradigm, but the right setup enables a new world where engineers own what they build.
Fairwinds can help guide you through what’s needed besides Kubernetes. We know common tools that layer well on top of Kubernetes and will help you implement these. Our suite of services, software and open source will enable your DevOps team to run secure, reliable and scalable Kubernetes infrastructure.
