Kubernetes is one of the most important technological advancements in the field of software platform administration in recent years. It is for this reason that t-matix made the decision very early on to convert the t-matix IoT platform entirely to this flexible open source system. Kubernetes makes it easier to manage and maintain an overview of the computer, network and storage infrastructure of a complex system. The Kubernetes infrastructure running in the background adapts flexibly to changes and grows with the complexity of the requirements. In this way, the system automatically detects utilization peaks and acts autonomously by distributing these loads within the system. In addition, Kubernetes reduces a system’s susceptibility to errors – it automatically detects errors within the server infrastructure, which can then be rectified immediately and selectively without affecting other processes. For us, Kubernetes is definitely the new gold standard for platform administration.
