Kubernetes and cloud native solutions and support

LSD has been working on Kubernetes since version1, and over the past 6 years we have become a valued digital acceleration partner for our clients across the globe. LSD offers services to help clients onboard these new cloud native technologies, facilitate Day 2 Ops and support the platforms and the teams using it.

To help businesses onboard and take advantage of Kubernetes and cloud native solutions, we created the LSDtrip. The LSDtrip is a fully managed and engineered cloud native accelerator, leveraging a foundation of containerisation, Kubernetes and open source technologies.

Kubernetes features

Automated rollouts and rollbacks

(hover for more information)
Kubernetes progressively rolls out changes to your application or its configuration, while monitoring application health to ensure it doesn't kill all your instances at the same time. If something goes wrong, Kubernetes will rollback the change for you. Take advantage of a growing ecosystem of deployment solutions.

Horizontal scaling

(hover for more information)
Scale your application up and down with a simple command, with a UI, or automatically based on CPU usage.

Batch execution

(hover for more information)
In addition to services, Kubernetes can manage your batch and CI workloads, replacing containers that fail, if desired.

IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack

(hover for more information)
Allocation of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to Pods and Services

Automatic bin packing

(hover for more information)
Automatically places containers based on their resource requirements and other constraints, while not sacrificing availability. Mix critical and best-effort workloads in order to drive up utilization and save even more resources.

Service discovery & load balancing

(hover for more information)
No need to modify your application to use an unfamiliar service discovery mechanism. Kubernetes gives Pods their own IP addresses and a single DNS name for a set of Pods, and can load-balance across them.

Storage orchestration

(hover for more information)
Automatically mount the storage system of your choice, whether from local storage, a public cloud provider such as GCP or AWS, or a network storage system such as NFS, iSCSI, Gluster, Ceph, Cinder, or Flocker.

Service topology

(hover for more information)
Routing of service traffic based upon cluster topology.

Self-healing

(hover for more information)
Restarts containers that fail, replaces and reschedules containers when nodes die, kills containers that don't respond to your user-defined health check, and doesn't advertise them to clients until they are ready to serve.

Secret and configuration mangement

(hover for more information)
Deploy and update secrets and application configuration without rebuilding your image and without exposing secrets in your stack configuration.
