Google may hook Kubernetes to the cloud
As previously reported on these pages, Kubernetes helps containerized codebases work together in order to deliver and manage Web-based apps
Docker is very good at helping developers to create apps running in containers. Kubernetes tries to take things further by getting code in containers to work together to deliver an application, and to help manage those containers and their joint and interlinked operations once an app goes into production.
Critically, Kubernetes works alongside Docker to launch applications onto server clusters and help those containers communicate with each other. And as we know, Docker is backed by Microsoft so this pretty much nails the de facto cloud hosting market.
Just how this integration with Google's own cloud might impact a small web design agency from Belfast, we hope to discover at next week's Cloud Platform Live event.
