About this Episode

CoreOS has been in the ecosystem of containerization from the very beginning. In fact it was the first company to introduce an enterprise product (Tectonic) around Kubernetes. Today Kubernetes is everywhere. Even Docker and Cloud Foundry are using it. All three major cloud providers - AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Compute Engine support Kubernetes.

What makes Kubernetes unique? Brandon Philips, CTO and co-founder of CoreOS, explained in an interview, that traditionally Open Source technologies created commoditized alternatives to dominant closed source technologies. Kubernetes has been an exception. “Linux was a competitor to UNIX, Apache web server was a competitor to Apache IIS. What is Kubernetes competing against? There was no closed source product that we were competing against,” said Philips.
