Kubernetes Benchmarking Study 2022

The gap between top performers and average engineering teams is widening. If you look close enough, self-service seems to be the secret of superior performance.

Throughout Q4 2021 and early 2022 we used the reach of our brand to offer teams a framework to benchmark their Kubernetes setups against other teams’ in our databases. Our rationale for it: most studies tend to stay fairly blurry when it comes to the details of teams’ everyday workflows and practices. Research suggests that the majority of engineering organizations are seeing their DevOps ambition stale, but how this actually looks like on the ground is not clear.

The response to our study was much better than originally expected. We ended up with 1,164 organizations providing deep insights into their DevOps and Kubernetes setups. In the survey, we covered three key aspects: 

  • State of Kubernetes
  • Technical approaches
  • Team setup and culture

You should read this if ...

  • You are are planning to adopt Kubernetes or you are already in the adoption phase
  • You care about improving your Kubernetes setup for your team
  • You want to close the gap to top performing engineering teams

Main titles of survey respondents:
DevOps Engineers, CloudOps Engineers, Infrastructure Engineers, Platform Engineers, Site Reliability Engineers,  Kubernetes Administrators, Technical Architects, Application Developers with an affinity with DevOps and Technical Management.
