Today, we’re bringing the latest Kubernetes 1.5 release to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) customers. In addition to the full slate of features available in Kubernetes, Google Container Engine brings a simplified user experience for cross-cloud federation, support for running stateful applications and automated maintenance of your clusters.
Highlights of this Container Engine release include:
The adoption of Kubernetes and growth of the community has propelled it to be one of the fastest and most active open source projects, and that growth is mirrored in the accelerating usage of Container Engine. By using the fully managed services, companies can focus on delivering value for their customers, rather than on maintaining their infrastructure. Some recent customer highlights include:
“Google Container Engine provides us with the openness, stability and scalability we need to manage and orchestrate our Docker containers. This year, our customers flourished during Black Friday and Cyber Monday with zero outages, downtime or interruptions in service thanks, in part, to Google Container Engine.” – Will Warren, Chief Technology Officer at GroupBy.
If you’d like to help shape the future of Kubernetes — the core technology Container Engine is built on — join the open Kubernetes community and participate via the kubernetes-users-mailing list or chat with us on the kubernetes-users Slack channel.
