Why Kubernetes?

Bitnami is continually investing in tools to address the next generation of application packaging including innovations like containers and serverless computing. Kubernetes is the dominant tool for container management and Bitnami is leading the charge in defining how containers and functions will be packaged and delivered for that platform.
