Loft Labs empowers developers to take back control over their environments and reduce Kubernetes cluster sprawl. In this episode of 2023 Predictions, Co-Founder and CTO Fabian Kramm shares what’s on his industry radar for this new year.

In 2023, Kramm predicts:

  • Kubernetes adoption will increase.
  • Kubernetes will become more popular in the developer space and consequently, more tooling around how to develop with it.
  • More radical experiments in the Kubernetes ecosystem in terms of projects and scope.

This year, Loft Labs will focus on:

  • Getting vcluster to version 1 and making it stable
  • Creating more integrations for the virtual cluster because reusing already existing services of the underlying host cluster saves the most money
  • Transitioning DevSpace to the CNCF Sandbox.

Because there is no standard in place just yet, companies will continue to be challenged with:

  • finding the right abstraction for developers in terms of how to interact with Kubernetes. Should they have direct access? Should they use a tool in front of Kubernetes? Should they just interact with a pipeline that shields them from Kubernetes completely?
  • how to run multiple clusters of Kubernetes and making sure those clusters are all in sync, all managed centrally, and can be exposed to developers or teams of developers.
