Kubernetes Room for Improvement

Michal Smolik
DevOps Consultant at DevOpsGroup
The Kubernetes dashboard can be improved. It is currently a mess. We were using Rancher earlier, and everyone was happy with the dashboard. Right now, we are using Kubernetes, and it's not working with Microsoft workstations. Aks is using mcr.microsoft.com/oss/kubernetes/dashboard:v2.0.0-rc7 for dashboard. It has problems with auth. It constantly deletes tokens in kube/config file. And auth with kube/config file is not working on mac. It does not work on chrome in windows 10. It is still laggy and slow. Auto refresh function is not working correctly and you need to refresh your browser. Older versions have similar problems. There is no restart function such as in rancher. There is no possible to restart or scale more deployments at the same time. You need to write script for that. Graphics design is out of date. After a while of not clicking anywhere it give you 401 and you need to login again. View full review »

It would be very interesting if they could introduce a template engine to set dynamic values in the deployment time. It would be ideal if it could be native in Kubernetes as it would be much easier. View full review »

I would love to see a feature like VMware's vMotion, meaning a workload can be transferred from one host to another without being restarted. While true cloud native applications typically don't need such a feature, there is still a lot of single-container legacy applications out in the field. These applications get unavailable while being rescheduled to another node, for example when doing node maintenance. View full review »

If you're using the solution on the desktop, you eventually have to download the Azure package and install it before you can actually use the Azure commands in Kubernetes. There are more community packages that have been released, rather than releases by Kubernetes. I understand that it's an open server and people can contribute to it, that's how it works. However, sometimes people get misguided and that's where we need some support. It would make a difference. View full review »

That's a good question. I'm not that experienced but there are definitely challenges in Kubernetes, if you are managing the cluster yourself. So doing all the admin work, managing the masters, there are some learning curves involved. If some of those things could be simplified, that would be awesome. View full review »

It would be useful to have a basic and stable interface for monitoring and quick deployment purposes, especially when the deployments are big like a proof of concept or proof of technology. Currently, you need to use the Kubernetes console for all functionalities. It is not a quick-to-learn product if you are not from a Linux background. You need to be very skilled at Linux to learn it quickly. It took me two to three months because I mostly work with Microsoft products. For people who are not from a Linux background, the learning curve is a little bit longer. View full review »
