Why Kubernetes

We have an apriori that the free software community doesn’t really like kubernetes, so this section is about why it is a such a great platform for hosting free software. Maybe it is just because this community doesn’t really know it, or maybe we are just plain wrong.

The only fact that this technology is trendy doesn’t make it the best choice. But the fact that everybody is talking about it should at least question your beliefs. Some people complain about it, and maybe you do too:

  • containers are not secured
  • kubernetes is developed by google
  • it is really complex
  • it consumes too much resources
  • the network stack is crazy

Let’s try to address these, and try to convince you that kubernetes is a good platform to host free software. (If you still have some unanswered questions, feel free to come and get in touch)
