Operational groups face a familiar situation as Kubernetes use scales across the enterprise. They need more structure and discipline in the initial Kubernetes implementations, which creates headwinds in building a secure, reliable and performant environment. To achieve operational excellence, teams must mature the Kubernetes infrastructure by standardizing tools and processes to ensure consistent performance, data protection and resilience.

Techstrong Research polled our community of DevOps, cloud-native, cybersecurity and digital transformation readers and viewers to take their pulse on their Kubernetes environment. Respondents indicated the most significant challenges they faced when scaling up a Kubernetes environment were security (24%), interruptions from troubleshooting (16%) and controlling costs (13%), in that order.
