Kubernetes turns two: a look at the numbers from this past year

Kubernetes turns two this month, and there is so much to celebrate! Kubernetes is meeting the critical business needs of some of the world’s largest organizations, and the rate of adoption over the last year has affirmed CoreOS’s commitment to this groundbreaking project. As the creators of the Tectonic enterprise-ready Kubernetes distribution, CoreOS knows none of this would be possible without the upstream community. We’re proud to see the ranks of the Kubernetes community swell by so many talented and passionate people who help drive the project forward. CoreOS works alongside this vibrant group to create Tectonic, the enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform.

Let’s look at the past year in numbers to get an overview of the monumental achievements of the Kubernetes ecosystem:
