Kubernetes is an open framework for scheduling Docker containers by Google. It was written from the start to be a lean, portable and extensible framework that lets developers actively manage containers the same way Google does. Containers back all of Google’s internet services from Search to Gmail and offer tremendous advantages in terms of efficiency and manageability. Google has been working closely with the broader software community to make containers accessible, and major companies like Microsoft, Red Hat and IBM are also backing the technology and making sure that it runs in a multi-cloud world. During this session we will provide an overview on the Kubernetes framework, discuss how it works to bring active management to the containers world, and give a glimpse into the future as we talk about what is coming next with the project.
