Containerization, Orchestration, and the Rise of Kubernetes

Kubernetes Has Proven Its Ability to Scale Up and Down Efficiently

Kubernetes was created by Google in 2014 to orchestrate containers on a large scale and it quickly became the most popular container orchestration tool.  In 2015, Google open-sourced Kubernetes which is now part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

Kubernetes is now used by some of the biggest companies globally, including Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft and it has become the standard for container orchestration in the cloud. Some of its most direct benefits include:

  • Container automation
  • Scaling up and down
  • Open source
  • DevOps cost savings
  • Multi-cloud possibilities
  • Run anywhere
  • Native tools availability

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking articles, blog posts, and videos around container orchestration and Kubernetes:
