Engineering Blog: How to handle multi-cloud auto-scaling when building a SaaS?

How Omnistrate can unburden you by managing a smart scaling system that works multi-cloud out of the box This is our first issue of a brand new Engineering series at Omnistrate.

Role of Kubernetes Operators in SaaS Development

Kubernetes (K8s) Operators serve as effective tools for automating certain aspects of the control plane. In fact, if you already possess an operator and are considering building your end-to-end SaaS solution, please refer to this page.

However, it's important to recognize that having a K8s operator represents a first step towards building SaaS:

Hello world SaaS design and its challenges

Time and time again, we observe organizations grappling with the right design, consequently entangled in perpetual operations. Initially, with 5 or 10 customers, everything seems promising, but as you scale, the cracks start to appear from every direction.

What is SaaS Control Plane?

I was among the authors at AWS who pioneered the first SaaS control plane back in 2009, laying the groundwork for many SaaS offerings both within and beyond AWS. Crafting the SaaS control plane, we delved deep into fundamental questions:

The Future of SaaS and Kubernetes: Trends and Predictions

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a popular and convenient way of delivering applications over the internet, without requiring users to install or maintain them on their own devices. SaaS providers can offer scalable, secure, and cost-effective solutions to their customers, while also benefiting from faster development cycles and lower operational overhead.

Kubernetes is an open-source platform that enables SaaS providers to automate the deployment, scaling, and management of their applications across multiple clusters of servers. Kubernetes provides a consistent and reliable environment for running SaaS applications, regardless of the underlying infrastructure or cloud provider. Kubernetes also offers features such as service discovery, load balancing, health checks, configuration management, and security policies that simplify the development and operation of SaaS applications.

Kubernetes and container networking in multi-cloud environments: Why it is not easy and why you need Sparta like skills

As the world of technology continues to evolve, containerization has become a popular choice for deploying applications. Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration system that has gained popularity due to its ability to manage and deploy containers across multiple hosts.

However, managing Kubernetes and container networking in multi-cloud environments can be challenging. This is where Sparta-like skills can come in handy.

Unlocking the Full Potential of Kubernetes with Amazon Linux 2023

Kubernetes has become the go-to container orchestration tool for many organizations. However, achieving the full potential of Kubernetes requires the right operating system. Kubernetes is a popular open-source container orchestration system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

Amazon Linux 2023, the latest version of Amazon Linux, is optimized for running workloads on AWS, and it provides a powerful platform for running Kubernetes clusters.

In this blog post, we will discuss how Amazon Linux 2023 can help you unlock the full potential of Kubernetes, with code examples that showcase the advanced features and capabilities of the operating system.

AKS Edge Essentials - On-premises Kubernetes implementation of Azure Kubernetes Service

AKS Edge Essentials, an on-premises Kubernetes implementation of Azure Kubernetes Service that automates running containerized applications at scale on PC-class or “light” edge hardware. It highlights the features, benefits and use cases of AKS Edge Essentials, such as:

  • A lightweight and supported Kubernetes distribution with a simple installation experience
  • A cloud-based management plane for Kubernetes clusters running anywhere
  • Support for both Linux-based and Windows-based containers
  • Interoperability between native Windows applications and containerized Linux workloads
  • A fully supported stack from kernel to cloud with security and update policies
  • Azure Arc integration to extend the Azure platform to the edge with core services
