A file variety of organizations have been utilizing containers and Kubernetes to run their enterprise functions final yr, in accordance with the Cloud Native Computing Basis’s newest survey of software program and devops engineers.
Whereas a file 96% of respondents stated they have been utilizing or evaluating Kubernetes final yr, that quantity drops to 60% when requested if they’re working the container orchestration platform in manufacturing.
Naturally, the CNCF goes to draw early adopters of cloud native know-how, however it’s nonetheless fascinating to see what number of respondents want to offload the administration of their clusters as containers grow to be foundational items.
Hand-tuning your personal Kubernetes clusters is difficult work, so it’s not stunning to see 79% of respondents offloading a few of these operational duties onto a licensed, hosted Kubernetes platform. Moreover, 90% of Kubernetes customers have turned to cloud-managed providers, in accordance with information supplied by cloud monitoring specialist Datadog. That is up from 70% in 2020.
“With this de facto standing, Kubernetes is now going “below the hood” much like Linux, with extra organizations leveraging managed providers and packaged platforms,” the survey authors famous.

The CNCF survey was compiled in two elements final yr, finally overlaying 3,800 respondents throughout the globe between April and November 2021. The survey additionally integrated manufacturing information from companions Datadog and New Relic and insights from SlashData for the primary time.
“Kubernetes adoption among the many ever-expanding cloud native group is approaching 100%, which means these investing in cloud native are strongly purchased in and excited for the long run,” CNCF govt director Priyanka Sharma stated in a press release. “Our information additionally demonstrates how ubiquitous cloud native is, whether or not it’s being deployed in-house or as a managed service. I imagine 2022 can be a banner yr for rising areas of cloud native like edge, observability, and safety as container infrastructures proceed to mature each on the floor and below the hood.”
