K8s in the Cloud
With a whole universe of things to learn, it’s important to start with the essentials. Let’s get to know why Kubernetes is usable, scalable and downright amazing and why it is worth learning!
Kubernetes is a portable, extensible, open-source platform for managing containerized workloads and services, that supports both declarative configuration and automation, letting you run distributed systems resiliently, with scaling and failover for your application.
Since it was open-sourced by Google in 2014, Kubernetes has skyrocketed in terms of adoption and popularity. With 78% of enterprises reporting that they use it to orchestrate containerized workloads and services in production.
Many enterprises have already adopted Kubernetes or have a Kubernetes migration plan in place, making it clear that the platform is here to stay.
With this kind of adoption rate, enterprises are keen to find competent Kubernetes experts.
Kubernetes skills are the most in demand for modern operational roles, such as DevOps and site reliability engineering (SRE) jobs. In the United States alone, 95% of DevOps practitioners made more than $75,000 a year in salary in 2020, up from 93% in 2019.
Top 5 tech roles that make up the highest percentage share of Kubernetes jobs on Indeed:
