Are you a UT employee and do you have an application in the form of a docker container / image and are you looking for a place to run it? Then request resources in our Kubernetes cluster.

Description

A docker container can be seen as a light version of a virtual machine where only the application dependencies are packed in a container. Containers are a very efficient technology to run apps and workloads in a server environment. Kubernetes takes care of the management of the docker containers in the cluster. If your app is in a container and you need to create multiple instances, it is possible to expand the number of resources.

Infrastructure: The Kubernetes infrastructure is managed by LISA. The Kubernetes cluster is spread over both data centers of the UT and currently offers protection against hardware failure. In the event of hardware failure, the cluster ensures that the containers are brought online to another node in the cluster. The created containers are the responsibility of the project owner.

Access to the Kubernetes cluster is facilitated with the help of Rancher.
