SANTA CLARA, Feb. 23, 2023 — Pepperdata, the leading platform for autonomous optimization of big data and Kubernetes workloads, has released “THE STATE OF KUBERNETES 2023,” results of a survey conducted with 800 C-level execs and senior ITOps and DevOps professionals in industries including financial services, healthcare, technology, and advertising. The survey aimed to gain insights into the types and sizes of containerized applications and other workloads on Kubernetes clusters, as well as the FinOps tools and practices used to optimize Kubernetes deployments and control costs.
Key findings from the survey show:
“The survey confirms that Kubernetes has become the preferred choice for deploying workloads among agile enterprises. However, the speed and ease of deployment can result in unexpected infrastructure cost overruns. Respondents are increasingly turning to FinOps and cloud cost optimization tools to help them remediate the cost of operating in the cloud and optimize their Kubernetes clusters,” said Ash Munshi, CEO, Pepperdata. “Regardless, the survey shows that cost savings is the top metric people are using to measure the ROI of their Kubernetes investments in 2023.”
Other findings included:
FinOps is a budding approach to managing and optimizing cloud spending across different teams within an organization. Given the increased interest in managing Kubernetes costs in the cloud, those surveyed were asked about their experience with FinOps.
The FinOps Foundation defines levels of familiarity with FinOps, from crawl to walk to run. Similar to the results identified in The State of FinOps 2022 survey, most respondents self-identified at the walk stage, meaning they can implement cloud cost reduction recommendations. The second largest group self-identified as the crawl stage, with the ability to visualize cloud costs even if they haven’t yet begun the process of implementing recommendations for remediation. Interestingly, more than 98% of respondents indicated familiarity with FinOps and saw themselves somewhere on the continuum of implementing best practices for cloud cost remediation. In addition, more than 17 percent of respondents identified themselves in the run stage, with the ability to remediate cloud costs autonomously.
Pepperdata is the only optimization solution that slashes cloud cost and transforms the performance of big data and Kubernetes workloads without manual interventions or code changes.
