// TECH TRENDS // workflows . It also allows you to schedule and run containers on clusters of physical and virtual machines while automating many operational tasks , enabling enterprises to tap into the potential of containers in day-to-day work via an automated fashion .

Kubernetes natively provides a rich set of capabilities to allow traditional and modern workload types to scale dynamically , based on a consistent and declarative deployment model . This allows application developers and operators to define a profile for each workload that ’ s equipped to scale based on demand and recover automatically , ensuring the integrity of the application and guaranteeing the highest levels of performance and reliability .
Overall , Kubernetes can help businesses cut infrastructure costs . It makes a containerbased architecture feasible across a portfolio of large enterprise apps , which means businesses can pack together apps using minimal resources to get the most out of their cloud and hardware investments . Meanwhile , apps that need to expand can be placed across pods where they have room to grow .
Enabling agility across the IT ecosystem
As our world becomes increasingly more connected , organisations must consider how business agility can be extended to capitalise
on the opportunity to deploy applications and services closer to customer needs .
SMEs must empower their teams of developers , platform operators and security professionals with a framework that unites many technological platforms spanning private cloud , public cloud and edge-based computing environments to create an environment of sustained agility .
Organisations can ubiquitously enable critical controls in a frictionless manner , empowering development teams to move quickly and safely , thanks to the Kubernetes API ’ s consistent availability across any infrastructure and its ability to bring security , compliance and architecture guardrails to life through software .
Kubernetes is evolving to extend the same consistent API that many enterprises use today in their data centres or public cloud settings to new distributed and hyper-connected computing environments . This enables enterprises to extend their applications in a unified manner , leveraging the tech foundation Kubernetes has created .
Given the rising need for better ransomware practices , streamlined business processes and business agility , SMEs and their IT personnel are increasingly favouring Kubernetes . It is clear how efficient and effective Kubernetes provides a plethora of time-saving , productive options to small and medium-sized organisations for data storage and management . �

THE SECOND FUNDAMENTAL BUSINESS CAPABILITY OF KUBERNETES IS ITS ABILITY TO ALLOW BUSINESSES TO ELIMINATE TEDIOUS , TIME- CONSUMING MANUAL PROCESSES AND , IN TURN , FREE UP TIME FOR THE COMPANY TO FOCUS ON GROWTH AND INNOVATION .
