In the years since Google invented Kubernetes, it has completely revolutionized IT operations, becoming the de facto standard for organizations looking for advanced container orchestration. Organizations that need the highest levels of reliability, security, and scalability for their applications choose Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). In the second quarter of 2020 alone, more than 100,000 companies used our application modernization platforms and services—including GKE—to build and run their applications. Until now, Kubernetes still involved a fair bit of manual assembly and tinkering to optimize it for your needs. Today, we’re introducing GKE Autopilot, a revolutionary mode of operations for managed Kubernetes that lets you focus on your software, while GKE Autopilot manages the infrastructure.

For many businesses, the flexibility and power that Kubernetes and GKE offers is ideal, giving them a high level of control over most aspects of their cluster configurations. For others though, this level of control and choices can be overwhelming or unnecessary for their workloads’ requirements, as they just want a simple way to build a more secure and consistent development platform. Autopilot can help, allowing businesses to embrace Kubernetes and simplifying operations by managing the cluster infrastructure, control plane, and nodes.
