Containerization in enterprises is the need of the hour as companies are looking for ways to become more cloud-enabled and agile in operations. The COVID-19 pandemic has made many business leaders adopt cloud solutions, and the trend is here to stay. IT spending has evolved from an expense to a significant portion of business operations.

As economies across the globe begin to reopen, organizations are banking on IT and cloud to lead them to the future, and containerization is, undoubtedly, a big part of it. How? Have a glance.

The Need of a Cloud Strategy

In the near future, that is, in the post-pandemic world, businesses will look to build strategic IT stacks that foster innovation and bring in new opportunities. To achieve this, they need flexible, adaptive solutions - legacy systems will be a burden in such cases. Modern business problems need modern agile solutions; it is as simple as that. Cloud-native solutions, microservices, and robust cloud infrastructure are seen as ideal solutions for such companies.

Such a strategy allows the company to get away from the clutches of legacy systems and enables them to transform into a digitally sound, platform-driven business with quick scalability and management capabilities. However, there are companies that adopt a 'lift and shift' strategy, which falls short most of the time. More of your applications must be on cloud-native solutions to ensure a good migration. Some of the benefits of cloud-native solutions are agility, scalability, and elasticity.

Contemporary Growth of Containerization

Experts estimate that more than three-quarters of organizations worldwide will be operating containerized applications by as early as the end of 2022. Container adoption is getting widespread all around us. Modern enterprise infrastructure wholly understands the need for containerization and adopts it without skepticism.

The primary step in the modernization process is transferring virtual machines from on-premise data centers to solutions such as the public cloud to an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) solution. The automatic provisioning of servers and virtualization policies will give IT teams complete control over their software. Hence companies now break down monolithic applications and run them as separate building blocks with the help of containers, increasing flexibility and scalability.

As a preferred open source solution for containerization, Kubernetes leads the pack. With Kubernetes, enterprises receive an elegant solution to manage compute, networking, and storage for their microservices.
