Container-based virtualisation technologies are gaining more and more traction in recent years across Cloud platforms and this will likely continue in the coming years. As such, containers orchestration technologies are becoming indispensable. Kubernetes has become the de facto standard because of its robustness, maturity and rich features. To free users of the burden of having to configure and maintain complex Kubernetes infrastructures, but still make use of its functionalities, all major Cloud providers are now offering cloud-native managed Kubernetes alternatives.
