Kubernetes was open-sourced by Google in 2014 and has since grown to become the de facto standard to deploy and operate containerized applications. GKE – the flagship Kubernetes Engine – was also launched around the same time.
Years later, Google remains dedicated to making GKE and Kubernetes the best way to manage containers. That’s why customers love GKE’s developer-friendliness, extreme scalability, stability and portability. It’s also why Google continues to be the largest engineering contributor to the Kubernetes open source repository, building on 15 years of experience with containers. Evaluate GKE for yourself – Read the Gartner® Solution Scorecard for Google Kubernetes Engine which scored GKE 92% among public cloud kubernetes services.
