Keeping pace with customer demand
In 2015, Google worked with The Linux Foundation to create the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and donated Kubernetes, the open source platform to automate deployment, scale, and manage containerized applications. The result? One of the highest velocity cloud projects today. Businesses including Box, GolfNow, Ancestry.com, eBay, BlackRock, and Ticketmaster are delivering their products and services faster, and boosting productivity and scalability, with Kubernetes.
“In the same way that Linus Torvalds has been instrumental in retooling the production lines of the modern economy as Henry Ford was 100 years ago, we strive to support the creation of technologies and ecosystems that will have a lasting global impact.”
