110 Vendors Jumping on the Kubernetes Bandwagon
Since Google founded the open-source Kubernetes container management and orchestration project in 2014, the project has seen significant growth. In September 2015, the project hit its 1.0 milestone, and Google donated it to the Linux Foundation’s Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), where it has continued to be developed. While Google remains a contributor and user of Kubernetes, one of the big shifts in the last two years has been the growing number of vendors both contributing to and providing commercial support for Kubernetes. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the vendors now providing commercial support and products for Kubernetes.
