Craig McLuckie and Joe Beda, key creators of the container orchestration framework Kubernetes at Google, have partly pulled back the curtains on a new venture: Heptio, a company that offers an ecosystem of services and products around Kubernetes.
They have yet to make public what that business will look like and what its product line will consist of. But other ventures that have sprung up around related technologies in the field may offer some clues.
Think globally, act locally
A TechCrunch article published today provided a profile of what McLuckie and Beda had in mind for Heptio: a “strong need for a Kubernetes-focused company to emerge that wasn’t tied to an adjacent business,” per McLuckie.
