Kubernetes at Enterprise Scale: A Platform for High Speed Development

Jan 19, 2019 by Armory

Kubernetes, the container orchestrator created and open-sourced by Google, has emerged as the de facto platform for running applications at scale.

This is not limited to top cloud customers – the reality is that most organizations are either already moving part of their workloads to Kubernetes or planning to do so at some point in the near future.
