The Rise of Containers & Kubernetes

Containers quickly rose in popularity, but what are they and how can they be optimized for your developers’ needs? Containers are lightweight, self-contained packages of executable software, but unless specifically instructed, they do not interact with each other. The leading system for managing, automating, scaling and deploying containers is the open source project Kubernetes. Originally developed by Google and then donated to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Kubernetes is now the industry’s de-facto container management solution.
