Hi Deepak

I'm wondering what you see as the pros and cons of running Kubernetes in a public cloud like AWS versus on-prem for an enterprise. I have my own thoughts, but I'll save this for our discussion.

Cheers,
Greg

For enterprise production use if data center infrastructure is already available on-prem is a suitable option, but if not the infrastructure and related services such as load balancers, storage, DNS, Logging and monitoring would need to be installed.

Thank you for the response Deepak.

This looks like a list of requirements to run kubernetes on-prem, but I'm looking for your thoughts on the benefits and shortcomings for running kubernetes on-prem versus a public cloud. My concern with on-prem is the suggestion that you can have all the benefits of running kubernetes in the cloud (e.g. on-demand self-serve, resource pooling, elasticity, measured services, etc.) without the public cloud costs. Based on my experience with kubernetes so far, I'm not convinced its that easy.

Haven't used Kubernetes on-prem to be able to comment. But have used Kubernetes on AWS EKS, Google GKE, and IBM Kubernetes service.

Okay thanks Deepak.

I think it makes a lot of sense to run Kubernetes through a public cloud provider if you have that option.

For my own personal learning, I'd like to try running Kubernetes on both EKS and GKE. I've only tried small, local deployments so far. Should be interesting.

Cheers,
Greg

AWS EKS and Google GKE definitely provide several integrated services that could be used.  
 
Whatever you say buddy! And I believe this tiny ad too:
