10 Vendors Jumping on the Kubernetes Bandwagon

Since Google founded the open-source Kubernetes container management and orchestration project in 2014, the project has seen significant growth. In September 2015, the project hit its 1.0 milestone, and Google donated it to the Linux Foundation’s Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) where is has continued to be developed.
