- Deliver production-grade Kubernetes on public and private cloud
- Operate Kubernetes stack without impacting customers and engineers
- Install updates that are supported and well documented
- Deploy production-grade Kubernetes in less than an hour — a 50% reduction in time
- Update a cluster in less than an hour vs eight hours
- Efficiently manage multiple clusters and move workloads between clusters
Due to his familiarity with DC/OS, de Winter turned his sights to D2iQ Konvoy. Moreover, he was swayed by the opinionated set of services and flexibility of the platform.
“We felt that if the people from Mesosphere created Konvoy after creating DC/OS, it’s probably something good,” said Winter.
“If you have to maintain and operate multiple technologies to do monitoring, it’s better to do it with one,” he added. “Because D2iQ Konvoy comes with a dashboard that enables all of these services on any cloud platform, it really helps our customers focus on the applications they want to develop. It’s all of these standard features in the Konvoy offering that gives our customers a head start with Kubernetes and helps them simplify their choices and move forward quickly.”
During the implementation process, Winter was impressed by the way D2iQ guided Cyso. “Their support team was easy to reach and was there for quick responses over Slack where we did our work every day. “If there was an issue, they were very knowledgeable and could easily fix it.”
D2iQ has given Cyso the opportunity to put in place repeatable automated processes. As a result, Cyso has seen a 50% reduction in time involved in standing up production-ready Kubernetes deployments. Now they can spend less time on daily maintenance and more time delivering business value. “With D2iQ Konvoy, it takes less than an hour to deploy production-grade Kubernetes,” Winter explained. “Instead of taking eight hours to update a cluster, we now spend less than an hour. Our engineers no longer have to fight with Kubernetes to get updated and can do other things with their time. Having a production-ready platform like D2iQ Konvoy makes us ten times more efficient.”
At the same time, D2iQ positions Cyso to further innovate. “D2iQ has given us the opportunity to grow into our enterprise Kubernetes offering. With the features that are in D2iQ Kommander, our customers are able to manage multiple Kubernetes clusters and move workloads between those clusters and work with different project teams.”
