Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Our very own regional director of Northern EMEA, Jeroen Overmaat, recently joined our partner, Magic Sandbox BV (MSB), for the inaugural episode of Magic Devcast, their new technology podcast.
Magic Devcast brings together technology industry personalities and influencers from around the world to discuss how they tackle the ever-changing landscape, how to approach remote work, learning and much more.
In this episode, Jeroen joins Mislav Stipetic at MSB to discuss the growing importance of containers in cloud migration and digital transformation. Jeroen explains why and how Kubernetes adoption has hastened dramatically in the last couple of years, and how Rancher Labs is helping companies in all sectors.
Importantly, Jeroen shares how he helps companies adopt Kubernetes and Rancher in Europe, the challenges he sees, how to build value on top of the Kubernetes ecosystem and much more.
“As more and more containers are being deployed in production, we see IT operations teams becoming responsible for the Kubernetes environment. Architects, developers and DevOps engineers are the primary drivers of K8s adoption, followed closely by IT operations. Ops teams need to think differently when considering how applications are being developed nowadays. The adoption of a Kubernetes platform can proliferate in a range of use cases; it’s our job to give teams a better understanding of how this can be achieved. That’s why Rancher is investing in certification programs with Rancher Academy. It’s also why MSB is such a cool company – helping many people to better understand the power of open source orchestration platforms.” – Jeroen Overmaat, Regional Director NEMEA, Rancher Labs
