Gartner, Cool Vendors in Cloud Infrastructure, Philip Dawson, Arun Chandrasekaran, Julia Palmer, 9 May 2018.

We believe Gartner has now validated what our friends and family members have long told us: we’re cool. Gartner has named us a Cool Vendor in Cloud Infrastructure.

The designation for 2018 went to four companies, each a trailblazer behind a key innovation enabling cloud native infrastructure. We’re honored to be a standard bearer for Kubernetes.
