Burning Cash Like Rocket Fuel To Get Hashi Stack To The Next Stage

Creating a platform is a massive technical challenge. We have seen many technically elegant ones in recent years – Cloud Foundry, Engine Yard, the original OpenShift, Photon Platform, Mesos, OpenStack come immediately to mind – that didn’t quite make it, and importantly did not rise to the economic challenge of making enough money to sustain the continued development and support of that platform to have to reach tens of thousands, to hundreds of thousands, to millions of customers.


Power To The Kubernetes People

Big Blue shelled out an incredible $34 billion to buy open source infrastructure software juggernaut Red Hat, and it is determined not to just tend and grow that business, which brought in around $3.85 billion in sales in 2019 as the deal closed and probably somewhere around $4.6 billion in 2020.


Taking Kubernetes Up To The Next Level

From the time Kubernetes was born in the labs at Google by engineers Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, and Craig McLuckie and then contributed to the open source community, it has become the de facto orchestration platform for containers, enabling easier development, scaling and movement of modern applications between on-premises datacenters and the cloud and between the multiple clouds – public and private – that enterprises are embracing.
