KubeCon Concluded in Austin, Texas

Dec 12, 2017

The Kubernetes community gathered in Austin, Texas.

Kubernetes has become the Linux of the cloud. It has seen massive adoption in the last three years. The first release of Kubernetes was announced in 2014. All three major cloud providers, including Google (the creator of Kubernetes), Microsoft, and AWS now support Kubernetes. Even Docker started offering Kubernetes as an orchestrator along with its own orchestrator Swarm. Cloud Foundry has adopted Kubernetes as Cloud Foundry Container Runtime, and OpenStack vendors have already adopted Kubernetes to deploy OpenStack as an application. All major Linux vendors, including Red Hat, SUSE, and Canonical offer Kubernetes distributions.

The adoption and growth of Kubernetes was the theme of KubeCon, the Kubernetes conference that was held between December 6 and 8 in Austin, Texas. During the conference, Oracle open sourced its Kubernetes tools for serverless deployment and multicloud management.

Microsoft announced that Azure would bring new serverless and DevOps capabilities to the Kubernetes community, and Bitnami launched a new in-cluster Kubernetes Application Consol.

The Kubernetes community announced the 1.0 release of CoreDNS, a cluster DNS for Kubernetes. JFrog and Baidu joined CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation), the home of Kubernetes, as Gold members.
