It’s hard to turn around these days without bumping into a Kubernetes distribution. For example, Mirantis recently buffed its OpenStack distribution to use Kubernetes as an internal component and for container management. Major Linux server distributions include it now.

But rapid proliferation can also be a warning sign. The excitement for OpenStack’s open approach to cloud infrastructure cooled once people realized its inherent complexity and clunkiness, and some vendors lost their shirts trying to build OpenStack businesses.
