Traditional software deployment processes involve scanning hundreds, if not thousands, of lines of code, managing dozens of operations and packages, and linking all the processes together to ensure everything in the program is operational and efficient. It can be a mess to manage, but thankfully there is a better way.

Visual Kubernetes (also called visual K8s) are types of software that allow you to see the pattern and flow of the various packages and platforms. Literally, you can see the Kubernetes! This ability brings several benefits to your team, helping them work faster, more efficiently, and more creatively.

Easily identify deployment details

Humans are visual creatures. Everyone likes to be able to see what they’re working on. In the programming world, this is often easier said than done. Most of the work is done through numbers and letters, with very few visuals painting the way. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of numerals. Code-only deployment tools can make it difficult for your team to identify details and keep track of what they’re doing.

By adding the visual aspect, your team can see how the Kubernetes software is working. Visual programs lay everything out almost like a flow chart — or as admins like to call it, the “pane of glass” view.

When everything is laid out clearly and visually, it’s easier for your team to track deployment details and see the connections and relationships between packages. That way, they can reduce errors by tracking even the most minute details and enjoy more productivity.

Simpler to manage

Some programs contain hundreds and hundreds of software packages. That number of packages can be quite daunting to manage, especially if you’re not sure where they are or how they work. With a visual Kubernetes editor, it’s easier for your team to track and manage packages. Instead of scouring through servers looking for a specific package, you can simply follow the lines in the visual editor to find the package you’re looking for.

If you encounter errors, you can follow the lines in the visual dashboard to find the package or software causing the problem and resolve the issue quickly. K8s is much easier to manage when you can actively see how everything works.

Better for beginners

Coding isn’t easy, but K8s is used by software developers all over the world. If you want to hire new talent (or start working on your own), a visual Kubernetes platform is the best way to get started.

Since you can see how the software works, you can get a visual about the relationship and management of packages without needing to know how to code. Trade in the wall of code for an easy drag-and-drop Kubernetes editor that’s user and beginner-friendly.

Once you understand how K8s works, you can take a deeper dive into the software itself and the code that powers it, allowing you to learn at your own pace. And because visual editors have a much smaller learning curve, you can bring more people in to work on your project, regardless of coding skill level, to get different perspectives, new ideas, and more labor power to
