GitLab is pleased to announce that we are now a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP). KCSP is run by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in collaboration with the Linux Foundation. The intention behind the KCSP program is to ensure that enterprises get the support they need to roll out applications to production Kubernetes environments. GitLab, through its KCSP status, wants to help organizations to adopt a cloud native approach for their business objectives.
A recent CNCF report shows that the use of containers in production has jumped from 23% in 2016 to 84% in 2019. According to another CNCF survey, cloud native technologies have become mainstream and many CNCF projects have adopted GitLab for their project needs. Kubernetes has emerged as the orchestrator of choice for organizations embarking on cloud native initiatives. Kubernetes helps organizations achieve container operational efficiencies and make developer interactions easier with strong API support. A recent survey of IT professionals working at organizations with 1,000 or more employees found that over 50% are running Kubernetes in a production environment. This is creating demand for people who understand how to migrate, deploy, and run containerized applications in a cloud native manner.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
