About this Episode

Ask not who embraces Kubernetes, ask who doesn’t. Because everyone is using Kubernetes. Including Oracle, the undisputed king of databases that’s steadily moving into the public and private cloud space.

Oracle has been in container management for over two years now. The company gained container expertise and solutions through the acquisition of StackEngine. We spoke with Bob Quillin, the co-founder of StackEngine who now leads Oracle Container Group as a vice president, to get a better understand of Oracle’s involvement with the Kubernetes community.

As Oracle followed the market and customers, it found that users were looking at a broader set of orchestration capabilities. There has been an upswell in the adoption of Kubernetes.

“Customers were looking at open community driven cloud neutral solutions to run their orchestration and container management solutions on top of Kubernetes,” said Quillin.
