Why It Matters:
The projected market for container technologies is currently over $2.5 billion and expected to grow roughly 30% per year over the next 2-3 years as companies seek to build more modular applications. Within this spend, Amalgam Insights expects that over 90% of this spend will be focused on Kubernetes, which won the container wars from 2015-2017 and has become the de facto solution for supporting containerized applications.
Amalgam Insights recommends Apptio Cloudability, CloudHealth by VMware, and Replex.io as vendors with a focus on Kubernetes cost management.
Amalgam Insights also notes the use of Cloudcheckr, Kubecost, and Red Hat for Kubernetes cost management and recommends tracking the progress of these products.
