Sachin Bhurke, Founder of Izel Technologies and VP of Business Development and Alliances at Catalogic Software
IzelTech’s diverse skill set even led them to work in liaison with tech moguls, such as AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift, VMware and MS Azure, to help businesses integrate product environments with these platforms creating a perfect environment for Enterprises to migrate and orchestrate Applications faster and at scale. In fact, their clientele encompassed several startups and big names in the industry—such as Aerospike, Nutanix, SeaMicro (AMD), Riverbed, ZeroStack (Lenovo), Rubrik, CloudVelox (VMware), Pavilion Data Systems and many others.
The success has led to the planned acquisition of Izel Technologies by Catalogic Software, a Data Protection, Copy Data Management, and Kubernetes Backup solutions provider.
Kubenetes in the new Linux in our lives. It is exciting to see the rate at which Kubernetes (as a container management platform) is maturing and Enterprises should embrace the adoption sooner than later. It is time to move on from the previous generation monolithic architecture to the modern microservices architecture and there are a bunch of reliable solutions available for you out there, be it for on-premises, hybrid or in Public Cloud environments
“Many enterprises are now moving away from a single large Kubernetes Cluster to have many smaller clusters-pods to limit the blast radius and also clusters for varied use cases. Managing multiple clusters, multiple cloud environments while providing effective data protection and security for all containerized apps with the least management overhead is the key to success going forward” says Bhurke, who was recently appointed as the VP of Business Development and Alliances with Catalogic Software.
“The current EKS/AKS/GKE K8s solutions provide either flexibility or ease of use but fail to provide both. They do make K8s lifecycle management easier to a great extent however at the cost of cloud/vendor lock-in. There are a few customized and prepackaged K8s management and data protection solutions out there and they do a reasonably good job in enterprise support but sometimes it’s a time-consuming process- takes months to deploy and update the configurations. Flexible is an issue, and the stack isn’t recipe based and hence not easily tweakable. A few of the K8s management platforms bring in the compatibility factor but end up compromising on the scalability factor”.
When asked about prediction for K8s and containerization journey for 2021, Mr.Bhurke said “ App modernization is a must have and in 2021 we see Kubernetes adoptions continue to pick up and advance (Tier-1 Application) use cases will start to emerge. Eg. How to effectively run Kubernetes on the edge locations, establishing micro-datacentres’, running Kubernetes on BareMetal hardware etc.
“Our investment in R&D is consistently high, so the products which we are working on are cutting edge, we stay abreast with the latest trends and relevant to the new emerging DevOps tools and related technologies. We try and understand the end user market including their critical needs and demands of the market. This allows us to align ourselves with the changing market dynamics,” Bhurke concludes.
