Within the last five years, Kubernetes has grown from a project inside of Google to a open source powerhouse with a ecosystem of products and services, attracting billions of dollars from venture investment. In reality, we have already seen some exits, such as one from one of our panelists.
On September 5th in TC Sessions: Enterprise, we’re going to be talking about the rise of Kubernetes with two industry veterans. For starters we’ve Aparna Sinha, manager of product management to Kubernetes along with the recently announced Anthos merchandise. Sinha was in charge of numerous early Kubernetes releases and has operated on the Kubernetes group at Google since 2016. Before joining Google, she’d 15 years experience in enterprise applications settings.
Craig McLuckie are also joining the conversation. He’s among Kubernetes in Google’s original developers. He went on to found his own Kubernetes startup, Heptio, using Joe Beda, another Google Kubernetes alum. They sold the firm to VMware last year for about $ 505 million after increasing $33.5 million, based on Crunchbase data.
The two attract a vast reservoir of knowledge and will be discussing the history of Kubernetes, why Google decided to open source it and how it came to develop so fast. Two Kubernetes luminaries will join them. We’ll have more about them in another post shortly.
(*)Kubernetes is a container orchestration engine. Rather than developing monolithic applications that sit on virtual machines, containers operate a portion of the application\. Since the elements get bigger, it requires a orchestration layer make them go away when they are needed and to supply the containers when necessary. Kubernetes acts because the orchestra leader.
Since Kubernetes, containerization and the cloud-native ethos it encompasses has grown, it has helped drive the enterprise shift to the cloud in general. If you are able to write your code once, and use it in the cloud or on prem, it implies you don’t have to handle software employing tool sets that are different which has had broad appeal for businesses\.
