Kubernetes is a well-known open source technology. It is now being adopted by Amazon.com. This act came in a time when there is augmented contest going on in the cloud computing business that was long dominated by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Many MNC firms including Oracle Corp., IBM Corp., and Microsoft Corp. have already implemented this open source technology as they developed apps on public clouds and these organizations stated they are supporting and implementing Kubernetes as that was developed originally by a Google team. Andy Jassy, Chief Executive of AWS, declared the implementation of Kubernetes by Amazon.com at the annual conference of AWS in Las Vegas, Re:Invent, which drew 40,000 attendees this year.
Kubernetes is fast becoming renowned as it has many benefits and one of the major benefits of this open source technology is its capability to operate an application or app on any public cloud including Google Cloud Platform of Alphabet and Azure of Microsoft. This in turn makes it unpretentious to transfer from one cloud merchant to another. But, according to some analysts, this Google technology has set itself up as the benchmark and therefore, AWS had little option other than backing it. Joe Beda, one of the creators of Kubernetes, stated that this is a model of AWS, which performed beyond their expectation in response to consumer necessities.
Way back in 2006, AWS dominated the cloud computing business with a facility that was overrated as an easy and quick means for smaller business. But now, the market has begun to transform as the overall share of AWS in the global cloud infrastructure market had increased from 43.8% in 2015 to 45.4% in 2017. The share of Google Cloud Platform has also increased from 1.7% in 2015 to 3.1% in 2017 and Microsoft Azure has grown from 5.6% to 10.3%.
