In the latest edition of KubeCon and CloudNativeCon, that took place in Barcelona last week. For all the cloud containers users, it felt like something of celebration that the Kubernetes has completed more than five years. Kubernetes came into being five years ago during June 2014. The 2019 KubeCon saw a smattering of news that represented a sense maturation of technology; various cloud providers queued up to talk about various issues that showed how advanced their Kubernetes offering was. One of the cloud providers from Europe OVH claimed it was one of the European cloud providers to offer Kubernetes deployment on multiple services. Google unveiled Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) managed toolset new products were made available. Kubernetes over the last five years has evolved and will continue to do so with a focus on cloud-first and application development.

In 2018, was the major battle of the container was won by the Kubernetes. During 2017 where most of the groundwork that actually took place with Google and IBM as the primary stakeholders, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) VP Todd Moore said by the end of the year we had added AWS, Microsoft and Salesforce and more had all signed up with the CNCF. Last year the Kubernetes was the first technology to graduate from CNCF, giving Kubernetes the badge that it has achieved the business level competency. According to Redmonk, almost 71 percent of the Fortune 100 were using containers in some capacity.

One of the reasons that many technology experts believe assist the convergence occurred due to businesses associated with technology at a much personal level of understanding. Docker first appeared during 2013 with containerized applications that promise simpler management and scalability for developers.  Many of the enterprises were trying to understand what cloud could actually do for them, with options of public and private be scrutinized.
