Kubernetes

  1. Kubernetes is very easy to get started and to set up
  2. It has various deployment options, file systems and service types making it suitable for several use cases besides Machine Learning
  3. Extends the functionality of Docker's rich functionality making it a deadly combination
  4. The rough edges in file system, utilization and resource management should be fixed to be adopted as a standard in a company
  5. Its extremely vast Python library makes it easy to build services on top of kubernetes. However the API is quite complex and documentation is quite poor

RabbitMQ

If you are looking for a message broker, RabbitMQ is pretty good. Its API lets you create tons of queues on demand and publish to all of them at once, while you can have 10+ consumers on each queue. It also does a good job of absorbing bursts of traffic. We've seen our queues get backed up to 3 million messages with no problem.In the modern era of GDPR, you may run into problems with keeping messages encrypted out of the box in-flight and at-rest with RabbitMQ. Not saying it's impossible, but it's tough to set up and you have to pay a high overload.

Pros

Kubernetes

  • Cost-effectiveness, Kubernetes is free and open source.
  • Scalability, Kubernetes works regardless of how many pods it's managing; be it ten or a thousand.
  • Low overhead, Kubernetes adds very little performance cost per developer per machine. The benefits of having a managed system vastly outweigh the minor performance cost.
  • Large market share, Kubernetes is one of the top container orchestration tools used by developers today. This has been immensely helpful when finding new talent who are familiar with Kubernetes.

  • Easy Setup

Cons

Kubernetes

  • Speed of error detection - many times, in attempting to fix a problem, I found that kubernetes just had a delay in handling an automated fix. By changing the system, I was playing a cat and mouse game with kubernetes' attempts to auto-fix the error.
  • Sensible logging - many of the logs are difficult to decipher and too verbose to be useful.
  • The learning curve is high - it took many months of working with Google, in which both I and Google Support Engineers learned a lot about how Kubernetes works. The learning curve is not for people looking for quick and easy out of the box.

RabbitMQ

  • Support for SSL/TLS.
  • Failover RabbitMQ cluster for high traffic environments.
  • The documentation needs improvement in explaining how to configure the above-mentioned features.

RabbitMQ is very usable if you are a programmer or DevOps engineer. You can setup and configure a messaging system without any programmatic knowledge either through an admin console plugin or through a command-line interface. It's very easy to spin up additional consumers when volume is heavy and it's very easy to manage those consumers either through automated scripting or through their admin console. Because it's language agnostic it integrates with any system supporting AMQP.

Documentation for Kubernetes is better than usual, and there are a variety of paid support offerings available from a variety of consultant shops. Explicit examples for specific features are sometimes hard to come by due to the wide array of features available, and the documentation can be overwhelming. Further, without any first-party paid offering, it's sometimes hard to know who to reach out to for support.

Alternatives Considered

Kubernetes

Docker Swarm is not as advanced as Kubernetes and there are no out of the box solutions for auto scaling and deployment strategies. Docker swarm doesnot have much experience with production deployments at scale. Swarm has a smaller community, and less frequent releases as compared to the very big Kubernetes Community and its rapid releases.

RabbitMQ

Honestly, though we're still trying out Kafka and Pulsar, I'd go with them for message broker and as traffic buffers. We are only still using RabbitMQ because it's hard to transition off after writing tons of code custom-built for RabbitMQ. Kafka is better because it's way more durable and observable. You have less risk of data loss. You can replay messages easily and quickly. I like Pulsar more at a high level (haven't tried operating it myself yet) because it's more naturally scalable. You can easily divide up the work onto multiple Pulsar instances without having to re-architect your code, I think. RabbitMQ on the other hand is really hard to scale horizontally.

Return on Investment

Kubernetes

  • We switched from Chef, so we got a HUGE amount of ROI by switching our microservices over to Kubernetes 8. A lot less code, a lot easier to test, and immutable images means we have just one build and that artifact goes through all the environments.
  • Automated deploys are SUPER easy with Kubernetes 8. We just have simple scripts listening on a GitHub repo for changes that applies/creates all the Kubernetes 8 pieces we need. Everyone has the power to deploy to any of the clusters through code and code reviews.
  • Shrunk our devops need dramatically, everything just works.

  • Can't quote in terms of figures but can say it's the backbone of our company in effective monitoring of our sms platform
