How Kubernetes Became the Solution for Migrating Legacy Applications
You don't have to tear down your monolith to modernize it. You can evolve it into a beautiful microservice using cloud-native technologies.
Kubernetes and containers didn't only change the ability to manage at scale, but also to take massive, monolithic applications and more easily slice them into more manageable microservices. Each service can be managed to scale up and down as needed. Microservices also allow for faster deployments and faster iteration in keeping with modern continuous integration practices.
