A strong indicator of the momentum growing around Kubernetes is the many strong cloud native end user case studies being shared in and around KubeCon this week. Check out the Oracle Cloud Native Framework announcement and the recaps so far to catch a glimpse of what’s happening. Five exciting customer stories detailed over the last few days describe how the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) service on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is helping developers build better infrastructure and improve their businesses. Take a look at the Oracle Cloud Native Framework press release and interviews in 3 Cloud Native Challenges to Address Now: Culture, Code and Cloud for even more details and the original stories.
“Sauce is a video collaboration and creation platform for teams, empowering brands to create authentic video content. Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has helped us scale our cloud technology, supporting our global growth while increasing reliability and performance, especially in the areas of video transcoding and creation.

"Kubernetes and containers are enabling CERN to improve the deployment of critical Java Applications to reduce maintenance tasks and focus more on developers' needs, including improving their experience with Oracle WebLogic Server. In this context, Oracle has provided us with an open source tool that has helped us decrease considerably the time needed to configure WebLogic. We are also working to take advantage of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and its Kubernetes offering to replace our disaster recovery solution for our databases and WebLogic," said Antonio Nappi, DevOps Engineer for CERN.
“Our business relies on delivering innovative software solutions to a global market. Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has helped us not only converge data centers and add scale, but also significantly improve performance and security as we adopt a microservices architecture. It’s actually been the simplest part of our migration,” said Jason Looney, vice president of Enterprise Architecture, Beeline.
“Gapsquare is a cloud-based SaaS solution that helps large companies maintain continuous fair pay by closing the gender pay gap, ethnicity pay gap, and any equal pay issues. By moving to the Oracle Cloud completely, we have been able to reduce time spent on DevOps and focus on implementing new features. We found Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes to be the easiest way to reliably deploy our application on a scalable and distributed environment, while continuing to deliver new automatic features that require no maintenance. This has allowed us to speed time to market for new offerings and rapidly expand globally,” said Zara Nanu, CEO of Gapsquare, and a member of Oracle's global startup program.
In The New Stack article, Charlie Davies co-founder from iGeolise and the TravelTime platform shared his Kubernetes journey. “We were initially using our own servers,” Davies said, “but working with the Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem program we were introduced to Kubernetes, and began to build microservices in containers. That let us parallelize operations, and what used to take a week now took less than eight hours.” That gave them a lot more control; “We could use Kubernetes to spin containers up and down as they were needed.”
