About this Episode

Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, has called the new Kubernetes certification program the most significant announcement yet made by the Foundation around the open source Kubernetes container orchestration engine.

On today's episode of The New Stack Makers from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017, we’ll learn more from Dan and William Denniss, Product Manager at Google, about how the program can help ensure interoperability and why that’s so important.

Denniss noted that avoiding vendor lock-in is a key reason people want to use Kubernetes, with a focus on abstracting away from the infrastructure they are using. The conformance program, he went on to explain, is a way people can certify their workload as being inter-operable across Kubernetes providers. "The goal of the program is to provide that predictability, that if my workload runs on certified Kubernetes, it should run on any Kubernetes provider."
