Kubernetes is the container management platform that came out of Google’s experiences managing data centers. Kubernetes abstracts away many of the frustrations of distributed systems management. OpenShift is a platform built on top of Kubernetes to provide an additional layer of usability.
Clayton Coleman is the lead engineer of OpenShift, and in our conversation today, we start with the basics of Kubernetes, then talk about OpenShift–Clayton explains why we need another abstraction on top of Kubernetes. Near the end of the conversation, we discuss the current state of cloud products–which can be confusing. Mesosphere, Swarm, Kubernetes, OpenStack, ECS–why do we need all of these different products? Clayton gives his perspective, and explains why it is not going to get any less confusing any time soon.
