Container Orchestration

Production grade container orchestration by Kubernetes:
Massively scalable industry standard open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Designed on the same principles that allow Google and others to run billions of containers a week.

Portable and deployment agnostic:
Container-based architecture allows you to deploy your application with its exact environment and configuration anywhere. Move your workloads as needed: between on-premises, public cloud, or hybrid infrastructure.

Restarts failed containers, replaces and reschedules containers when nodes die, kills containers that don’t respond to user-defined health checks, doesn’t advertise containers to clients until they are ready to serve.

Horizontal scaling:
Applications automatically scale across containers based on parameters we set like CPU usage, traffic, or other factors.

Simple service discovery and load balancing:
Kubernetes gives containers their own internal IP addresses and a single DNS name for a set of containers, and can load-balance across them.

Automated rollouts and rollbacks:
Changes to your application or its configuration are rolled out progressively, while monitoring application health. Automated rollbacks to a previous version or snapshot if something goes wrong.

Compliance & Data Sovereignty

Data privacy regulations on public clouds respected in cooperation with our sovereign cloud providers.

Fully compatible with hosting on your own premises and your in-house infrastructure. You can have complete control over your data and meet the strictest compliance and data sovereignty requirements.

DRUD maintains all DDEV infrastructure following industry best practices and undertaking relevant measures for legal and regulatory compliance.
Infrastructure and software automatically scanned for configuration and patching compliance.

Operating systems, middleware, and software libraries receive timely security patches.
