In this series of Let’s Talk interviews for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022 , I sat down with Itiel Shwartz, CTO and Co-Founder at Komodor, to discuss the event, what kind of participants were there and what major trends he witnessed at the event.
He said that the complexity that we often talk about is only going to increase for a while. “I don’t see it decreasing. I believe that we will reach some sort of peak sometime, at least I hope, for the industry, where things are going to get stable,” said Shwartz.
Shwartz identified two main groups of attendees: the Kubernetes experts and the people who are starting their immigration process to Kubernetes to learn. Schwarz discussed the trends he is seeing in Kubernetes and the challenges with complexity. He also shared details of Komodor’s latest round of funding and the focus of the company going forward.
Key highlights of this video interview are:
- Shwartz discusses the type of attendees KubeCon attracted and why it was valuable to talk to both the Kubernetes experts as well as the people just starting out on their Kubernetes journey.
- Shwartz explains the three key trends and patterns he saw at KubeCon this year: how Kubernetes is being used as a bridge for multi-cloud and hybrid solutions, observability tools to help developers, and how to best manage clusters.
- Although Kubernetes adoption is growing, so is the complexity that comes with that. Shwartz feels that people are still trying to work out the best ways to manage Kubernetes but until more best practices get put into place, complexity will still be an issue.
- Shwartz goes into detail about a Series B funding that raised $42 million explaining the two key focuses for Komodor: empowering developers and to help SREs and DevOps to solve issues faster. He explains why these are the most important areas of focus and what the company aims to achieve.
