Kubernetes Audit & Assessment

Kubernetes became a standard for running containerized workloads. Despite it’s explosve growth and wide adoption, it’s still a complex and multi-layered technology, with many nuances from operations and up to developer experience areas. We’ve helped to build, support and extend dozens of Kubernetes environments, including complex PaaS systems. As part of Kubernetes Audit & Assessment, we will help you to get on the right path to a proper cloud native container platform.

Whether you wonder if your existing Kubernetes setup is correct or you just evaluate migrating to Kubernetes for new or existing workloads, our Kubernetes Audit & Assessment will help you out.

Why you might need Kubernetes audit and assessment

Are your workloads properly isolated on namespace and network level? Are you wasting resources on inproper capacity settings? Does your application benefit from all the features Kubernetes can provide? Which persistence layer should you choose for your workloads, if any? How does the RBAC setup should look like and is it okay for your pods to run under root user? Which CNI plugin is the best for you? How to move your monolithic legacy applications to cloud native world? Those and many other questions will be answered, tailored to your particular environment and applications.

How the process of Kubernetes audit and assessment looks like

As part of an in-depth Kubernetes audit and assessment, we review your setup from every angle — from cluster oprations to security, from developer experience to CI/CD process tailored to cloud native setups, from service mesh to observability. We will examine every Kubernetes cluster you have, regardless if you are running it on-prem or in the cloud — and proactively suggest potential improvements and replacements. We will look at your applications and tell you from which features of Kubernetes they can benefit.

  • We conduct a series of interviews with your team — infrastructure engineers, developers, product owners. We won’t just collect the info about your Kubernetes setup — we go deep, by analyzing your applications and what they do. The best benefits of the cloud native platform can be gained by aligning your apps to what the Kubernetes has to offer.
  • We analyze your setup hands-on — for that we will need full ClusterRead RBAC to your Kubernetes clusters, as well as read access to cloud accounts (AWS, GCP and others).
  • Based on what we see and hear, we will build a detailed report on everything we found that could be improved or introduced. We will also fill your backlog with concrete user stories.
