From the 2023 Annual Survey, Kubernetes has become a mainstream global technology and 71% of organizations use Kubernetes in production:


Kubernetes was the first project accepted into the CNCF Incubator in March 2016 and remains a top open source project. Kubernetes not only shattered expectations for itself but it set a North Star for the entire CNCF ecosystem. CNCF has since grown to more than 184 cloud native projects and the success of Kubernetes in the CNCF established a baseline of what was possible for others.

Originally developed at Google and released as open source in 2014, Kubernetes builds on 15 years of running Googleโ€™s containerized workloads and the valuable contributions from the open source community. Kubernetes makes everything associated with deploying and managing applications easier.
