When you think about cloud services, about containers for Infrastructure, getting on board with Kubernetes architecture for a containerized environment is the natural path. With Kubernetes, it’s possible to leave the complexity of Infrastructure on the wayside and make a reduction in the constant need for review of its operation strategy
Mandaê is a logistics company that delivers e-commerce products in an innovative way via contracted carriers. With no transportation costs or goods, Mandaê travels the entire country delivering logistics with a competitive advantage.
Understanding that shipping cost and delivery time are two decisive factors in online purchases, the company has algorithms that calculate the best transport option for e-commerce in real time, according to analysis by SLA, shipping method, price, delivery time, and destination.
To correspond better to the logistic intelligence of the business, Mandaê migrated its applications to a Kubernetes environment in early November, with Getup’s help. The change was made in two stages, and shortly after the first one the company began to realize that some of these necessary improvements to its platform would have been even easier if the applications were already in a Kubernetes environment.
According to @Danilo Ferreira, CTO of Mandaê, Kubernetes is a basic premise for being at a high level of architecture: “When you think about cloud services, about containers for Infrastructure, getting on board with Kubernetes architecture for a containerized environment is the natural path. With Kubernetes, it’s possible to leave the complexity of Infrastructure on the wayside and make a reduction in the constant need for review of its operation strategy”, comments the executive.
Another advantage that Kubernetes brings to Mandaê is the optimization of Technology professionals’ work, giving them more time instead to dedicate to the business’s strategic agenda. For example, an intense period of sales such as Black Friday, and also the constant growth of purchases via Internet.
In this way Danilo views Getup as a strategic partner who, with their extensive expertise in Kubernetes, have added value to the business’s infrastructure. In addition, he considers that this work model has brought a savings in headcount and greater productivity to his area.
