Kubernetes Is Entering Its 7th Anniversary With A Focus On Enabling Developers And Businesses To Deploy Container Application Services In The Simplest Way Available.
In the future, we will construct a larger computing power scale application service
Founded by former Google engineers Joe Beda, Brendan Burns and Craig McLuckie and created as an open source containerized application architecture, Kubernetes (K8s) officially entered its seventh birthday in June, and has joined VMware online and currently, and continues to drive the development of Kubernetes applications McLuckie conducted an interview to learn about the current development of Kubernetes containerized application services.
Kubernetes originally called “Project 7” and originated from the role of the Borg in StarCraft: Return to Earth
Kubernetes was originally created as “Project 7” and was actually conceived as “Seven Nine of” in the TV series Star Wars: Back to Earth, with Jerri Ryan as the Borg character “Seven Nine of Nine” named Annika Hansen, and Kubernetes, which actually echoes the number “7” in the TV series Star Trek: Voyager, uses a rudder icon with seven handlebars.
“Seven of Nine” appears in the TV series StarCraft: Return to Earth
Note: The Borg can mechanically maintain the body’s operations in millions of groups in the body, even through assimilation with other races, even if necessary, echoing the basic mode of operation of Kubernetes.
According to Joe Beda, although it was hoped that the name “Project 7” would continue to develop, it was later followed by the kubernetes name currently in use after being told that there might be problems with the commercial use of the name.
To provide developers, enterprises can be easier to build services for the purpose
Kubernetes was founded to make it easier for developers and businesses to build services, and to quickly deploy services on devices, the cloud, or virtual machines, but also with fast maintenance, adjustment and transfer features, but also because of its own open source architecture design, so at the launch of the old immediately attracted a lot of developers.
Joe Beda and Craig McLauckie continue to drive Kubernetes applications as VMware’s Vice President of Research and Development in the Chief Engineer and Application Modernization business unit, making VMware the second largest technology contributor outside of Google and a leader in container technology applications.
As for the announcement of VMware Tanzu at the VMworld Conference in 2019, and in conjunction with its Cloud Foundation integrated solutions, it will not only enable enterprises to build modern application services based on Kubernetes container technology faster, but also maintain the operation of traditional application services, making it easier for enterprises to embrace digital development.
VMware is also continuing to promote cloud-native application services, in conjunction with Kubernetes has always emphasized easy-to-use models, so that more enterprises can easily embrace the cloud, and through digital application services, with different public cloud services to expand development.
Maintain the same computing efficiency in different computing environments
On the other hand, for different enterprises may be sensitive to the use of data for services, or because local regulations require that they operate through the ground server, Craig McLuckie emphasizes that operating through the Kubernetes containerized architecture can actually still be sufficiently computational, thus facilitating the deployment model in the form of a hybrid cloud architecture, while also highlighting Kubernetes’ resilience in the construction of application services.
As for the current 7th anniversary, Joe Beda expects containerized applications driven by Kubernetes to be more robust in the future, as well as more meta-application models, such as Project Montery, which VMware announced last year as a partnership with NVIDIA SmartNIC connects local computing resources in the form of smartNIC, and allows developers and enterprises to construct larger computing power scales, or to construct application services that integrate ai intelligence computing, while also expanding digital services built into hybrid cloud architectures through Kubernetes containerization technology.
