As cloud native technology adoption proliferates, software development practices have changed profoundly. Containers, Kubernetes, and their expanding ecosystem of technologies promise to enable unprecedented gains in speed of application development and deployment. However, developers’ speed of execution and their ability to innovate are often impeded by the complexity and depth of functionality of Kubernetes, which requires a substantial collaborative effort with IT operations and cloud administrators. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn from one of Nutanix’s DevOps experts about best practices for DevOps professionals seeking to build and manage microservices-based applications to run at scale in Kubernetes environments.

Specifically, we’ll talk about:

  • How containerized applications use IT resources (and why legacy infrastructure isn’t built for Kubernetes)
  • How developers and operators can divide up cloud native responsibilities for better collaboration
  • Best practices for building and deploying cloud native applications
