VMware, in collaboration with sister company Pivotal, announced this week the general availability of the Kubernetes instance developed by the two companies. Paul Dul, vice president of product management for cloud native applications at VMware, says the Pivotal Container Service (PKS) is much more than a curated instance of Kubernetes.

Red Hat moved to expand the intellectual capital it can bring to bear regarding containers and the Kubernetes platform by acquiring CoreOS for $250 million. The two companies expect to close the deal today.
VMware has advanced its campaign to make containers an extension of its virtual machine environment by making it simpler to deploy VMware Integrated Controllers (VIC).

Siddhartha Agarwal is vice president, product management and strategy, for Oracle Cloud Platform. Developers should be burning with excitement about the opportunities ahead in 2018, with products and tools around technologies such as blockchain, chatbots, serverless functions, and machine learning becoming mature enough for real-world projects.
Provisioning a Kubernetes cluster has become a lot easier in recent months, but the daily management of the platform still can be challenging. To make it simpler to manage a Kubernetes cluster, Canonical has teamed up with Rancher Labs to deliver a Cloud Native Platform due out in early 2018.
