Welcome to The New Stack Context, a weekly podcast where we discuss the latest news and views from the cloud native community. This week we speak to Joe Fernandes, Red Hat’s vice president of product for the company’s cloud platforms business unit. We discuss the past year and the future of Kubernetes, as well as what to expect next week at the KubeCon+CloudNativeCon conference in San Diego next week. Libby Clark, who is the editorial and marketing director at TNS, hosted this podcast, along with Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack.
What have been some of the most significant events in the Kubernetes and cloud native community over the past year? A lot of work has been done in slimming and stabilizing the core. Operators were a growing trend over the past year — Operators are mechanisms to expand the number of things you can build on top of Kubernetes. We are seeing Kubernetes expand into new workloads as well, Fernandes said. And looking ahead, we may see that the developer experience will be increasingly different with Kubernetes depending on the applications and workloads with different needs, Fernandes said. It’s important to have standards at the core, but at the edge, developers want more choice.
Check back The New Stack next week for complete coverage of KubeCon+CloudNativeCon.
In addition to Kubernetes, we also talk about the news that Mirantis will acquire Docker’s Enterprise business and our new multimedia package on the state of Docker security. And last, but not least, we discuss Microsoft’s new single control plane for hybrid cloud deployments, Arc.
