The Best Tools For Deploying Cloud Native Applications On-Premises

By Redapt Marketing | Posted on December 17, 2019 | Posted in Enterprise Infrastructure, Application Modernization, Tech We Like

Maybe you’re deploying cloud-native tech stacks on-premises because you’ve reached a size where utilizing the public cloud is no longer cost-effective.

Maybe you need to run software a substantial distance from the nearest public cloud server.

Or, maybe you want to develop a business model for premium customers to have direct access to products.

Click here to read the complete guide on building cloud native applications.

Regardless of your motivation, there are tools at your disposal to help with your migration and ongoing usage. In this edition of Tech We Like, we’re looking at three of them.


Going cloud-native means utilizing Kubernetes. Rancher makes managing all your Kubernetes clusters simple by providing one platform for DevOps and IT teams to work from, no matter where those clusters live.

With Rancher, you can build and operate Kubernetes clusters in the public cloud, via VMware, or even on bare metal servers. You can also create a consistent authentication and access control to manage security.

Red Hat OpenShift is a Kubernetes platform that makes it easy to automate provisioning, scaling, and management of applications from one control center.

With OpenShift’s application templates, you can build and deploy in your application languages and databases of choice, from Java and .NET, Ruby, or Python. You can also utilize OpenShift command line tools to build your own fully functional instance on a local machine and then deploy to any OpenShift cluster.

PKS allows you to reliably deploy and run containers across both private and public clouds. This means you can leverage your existing VMware—and your current technology skills—to adopt Kubernetes locally.

With PKS, you reduce your overall risk by bringing Kubernetes into the infrastructure your operations team already knows and trusts. You also give your developers the choice, flexibility, and tools they need to build and deploy faster.

A hybrid cloud platform, Anthos is different from other public cloud services in that it’s not just a product but it’s an umbrella for multiple services. Its focus is application modernization, cloud migration, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud management.

With Anthos, you have a consistent platform for building and managing applications across all environments. You also have all the mechanisms needed to bring code into production securely and reliably.
