A large number of companies have accelerated their digital transformation projects leading to increased use of containers to deploy applications. Kubernetes, an OSS project by Google, is an orchestration platform which manages the lifecycle of containers and has become the Linux for the cloud. Gartner predicts by the end of 2022, 75% of organisations will be running containerised applications and hence the demand for Kubernetes.
Girish Shilamkar, CEO & Founder at InfraCloud, said “The acquisition of BotKube further demonstrates our ability to build innovative and customer-centric products and services in the Kubernetes ecosystem to drive cloud adoption.”
InfraCloud is uniquely positioned to be a major player in the Kubernetes ecosystem because of its deep expertise in Kubernetes and culture of innovation. This majority stake is testimony to InfraCloud’s strategy and expertise in cloud-native technologies.
