Collaborating with Google on Cloud Services Platform(14 Mar 2019)
Every once and a while I am reminded that all this cool new technology we are fortunate to make a living from still comes down to the people you get to meet and interact with. Looking back about 9 months, a couple weeks after we announced our official partnership with Google I was introduced to a couple Googlers that were working on a fresh new Kubernetes project. Most of the conversation was not about the technology or what they were building but what the market and our customers needed to be successful with Kubernetes. At this point it was no secret that Kubernetes was a very big deal and many people trying to deploy and manage it as scale were having some challenges. Google was clearly looking to solve these challenges and also take things to a new level.
