Build, Run and Manage Your Apps in the Cloud for Automotive

The main trends in the automotive industry are connectivity through the Internet of Things, emergence of self-driving vehicles, evolution of pay-as-you-go car ownership models, etc. Dealing with complex engineering systems and data analytics, the companies look for scalable and powerful infrastructure, as well as additional storage and computational resources. Here, cloud technologies come to the resque. Ensure regular system monitoring and updates, reduce maintenance costs, enable uninterrupted performance and high availability, as well as achieve security of critical data.

Let’s reimagine the Automotive business together!

Benefits of Kubernetes in Automotive

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.

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.

Routing of service traffic based upon cluster topology.

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.

Deploy and update secrets and application configuration without rebuilding your image and without exposing secrets in your stack configuration.

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.

In addition to services, Kubernetes can manage your batch and CI workloads, replacing containers that fail, if desired.

Allocation of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to Pods and Services

Scale your application up and down with a simple command, with a UI, or automatically based on CPU usage.

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.
