Kubernetes and ArcGIS: Staying Ahead of Evolving Tech

The cloud-native deployment option for ArcGIS Enterprise, Kubernetes, is quite popular these days, but what is Kubernetes?

K8s is entering the mainstream because of its scalability, resilience, and maintainability. While the deployment of ArcGIS Enterprise on Kubernetes is an exciting new frontier for IT architects, it’s still important for GIS end-users to understand what is going on behind-the-scenes. 

This webinar will discuss some of the specific ways ArcGIS on Kubernetes could enhance scaling of services, streamline installation and updates with minimal downtime, and increase visibility on how your ArcGIS Enterprise system is running.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Best practices for getting started with Kubernetes
  • Key considerations for adopting Kubernetes to orchestrate your containerized applications at scale
  • How best to take advantage of this technology – when, where and why to use it
