MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Portworx® by Pure Storage® (NYSE: PSTG), the most complete Kubernetes Data Services Platform, today released findings from its annual Kubernetes Adoption Survey1. The survey assesses the mass adoption and evolution of Kubernetes usage among enterprise users in the last 12 months, in addition to the impact of the pandemic on IT users' attitudes towards their jobs. Supported by an overwhelming response from IT users, the findings suggest that despite budget cuts, enterprises are rapidly turning to Kubernetes to drive faster business results and, overall, reported happier, well-paid IT employees.
For over a year, the pandemic has challenged businesses everywhere to experiment and innovate their offerings to cater to evolving customer demands for convenience and simplicity, as well as supporting employees in the new world of remote work. In the midst of it all, Kubernetes has played a critical role. The latest annual survey commissioned by Portworx found that 68 percent of IT professionals said they increased their usage of Kubernetes as a result of the pandemic, primarily to accelerate their deployment of new applications and increase their use of automation - both of which are critical to meeting customers and employees where they are today. What's more, despite added working pressures, most IT professionals (52 percent) enjoyed their jobs more than they did before, with those most familiar with Kubernetes tending to earn higher salaries.
