In this briefing, Unvia CTO Fritz Ferstl gave an introduction to running mixed workloads (containerized and non-containerized) on OpenShift using Navops. He pointed out how today's enterprise complexity yields a new set of challenges as companies mature in their use of Kubernetes and OpenShift. Univa has come up with an interesting solution to providing virtual multitenancy on OpenShift allows organizations to share Kubernetes clusters between multiple production applications and/or between development, test, and production. Sharing clusters with non-containerized applications creates a different set of issues altogether, such as workload prioritization. Fritz gave a good introduction to the underpinnings of the Navops architecture and how it all integrated with OpenShift and Kubernetes.
Univa’s Stefan Haas then demonstrated how Navops Command provides the advanced scheduling and policy framework allowing sharing of OpenShift clusters across teams and for the deployment and execution of non-containerized workloads in a Kubernetes context.
