Kubernetes is the leading container orchestration system, and it has a vast ecosystem of open-source and commercial components built around it.

- Scaling and self-healing containers
- Service discovery
- Load balancing

This blog will highlight some of the challenges of using Kubernetes and, based on our work with hundreds of organizations, how to avoid the challenges to unlock the full potential of cloud-native.
