Best Practices for Running Containers and Kubernetes in Production
“By 2022, more than 75% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production, which is a significant increase from fewer than 30% today.” *
According to this research, "Although there’s growing interest in and rapid adoption of containers, running them in production requires a steep learning curve, due to technological immaturity and a lack of operational know-how."
In this report, Gartner recommends best practices for container production environments, covering security, governance, monitoring, storage, networking, container life cycle management and container orchestration.
