As Kubernetes Hits 1.0, Google Donates Technology To Newly Formed Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Kubernetes, the open-source container management tool Google launched last February, hit version 1.0 today. With this update, Google now considers Kubernetes ready for production. What’s more important, though, Google is also ceding control over Kubernetes and is donating it to a newly formed foundation — the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) that will be run by the Linux Foundation. Other partners in the new foundation include Box, Cisco, CoreOS, Cycle Computing, Docker, eBay, Goldman Sachs, IBM, Intel, Joyent, Mesosphere,Twitter, Switch SUPERNAP, Univa, VMware and Weaveworks.
