At the end of 2021, TFiR interviewed our CEO, Julian Fischer, asking him about his predictions for 2022 in Cloud Native Computing with a spotlight on Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes. We have summarized a brief overview of the essential key points for you.
In a brief introduction, Julian characterizes anynines as a digital transformation company focusing on tailored cloud technology solutions. Making life easier for developers and ultimately businesses through data service automation and building and maintaining application developer platforms is one of the core missions of anynines’ product portfolio.
The Future of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes
Right out of the bat, Julian stated that given the focus of anynines, a close look at the future of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes is essential.
He discusses the patterns that show the expansion of adoption of the Kubernetes ecosystem by large corporations and its challenges and how what they’ve learned from these challenges might help the ecosystem evolve.
To conclude this point, he deals with the new questions to be answered in 2022, like how Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes could be connected in a meaningful way.
Data Services in 2022
Data services could be a key to a possible solution to bring the two ecosystems closer together.
‘I think Data Services are providing a missing link there because they all need to store data. And store data in a way that it’s independent of the underlying infrastructure is if you need or want infrastructure agnosticism key. So in both scenarios, you have to figure out how to do that properly’, he explains.
Welcome to the K8s Evolution
In the interview, Julian continues his predictions by sharing his belief that the Kubernetes ecosystem will systematically manage clusters while preserving some degree of local autonomy to the actual cluster owners.
He talks about the dynamism in the ecosystem, citing lift and shift projects where applications are to be moved out of either physical machines or virtual machines into Kubernetes-based deployments.
Cloud Foundry Through the Crystal Ball
For Cloud Foundry, Julian affirms to see most of the developments and engineering capacity shifting and moving forward.
In his opinion, Cloud Foundry will continue for those who are used to the ecosystem and trust it to work on scale. But he also ratifies his belief that other solutions, such as KubeCF and the current implementation of Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes, will be stale in the future.
