The Past, Present and Future of Kubernetes

Learning about the benefits of Kubernetes from the Kismatic Team

As part of my writing for InfoQ, I recently had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with Joseph Jacks and Patrick Reilly from Kismatic Inc, a company offering enterprise Kubernetes support, and asked about their thoughts on the recent Kubernetes v1.0 launch, the history of the project, and how this container orchestration platform may impact the future of microservice deployment.

The Past, Present and Future of Kubernetes

Here at OpenCredo we’ve chatted to the Kismatic team before, and Patrick presented at a London Kubernetes meetup we hosted earlier in the year. Kismatic are a company offering enterprise support for Kubernetes and Docker, are closely involved with the open source Kubernetes ecosystem, and are one of the founding members of the recently announced Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

I learned some great insights from my conversation with Joseph and Patrick:

  • The history of Kubernetes, and the relation of this platform to Google’s Borg
  • How the developer primitives exposed by Kubernetes could speed development time of microservices
  • Links to a series of Kubernetes and microservice ‘patterns’
  • Thoughts on the future of the ‘fullstack’ developer
  • The current features available in Kubernetes v1, and what is on the immediate roadmap
