Microsoft Uses Google's Kubernetes in AKS

Microsoft a rebranding of the Azure Container Service (ACS)-- the acronym behind the service is now "AKS," with the K standing for Kubernetes, the Google open-source container orchestration service.

Technically AKS still stands for Azure Container Service, mind, but Microsoft is now putting its weight behind what is becoming the container standard. It offers an Azure-hosted control plane and is free to use on, even if customers have to pay for the VM running the container (alternatives, such as Google Container Engine, demand a flat fee per hour and cluster).

Google and Cisco Team Up in Hybrid Cloud

Google and Cisco are the next two companies to announce a cloud partnership-- specifically one in a "unique and open" hybrid cloud deployed, managed and secured across on-premises Cisco-based environments and Google Cloud Platform.

Enterprises will be able to run, secure and monitor workloads, plan cloud migration at own pace, and avoid vendor lock in. It also allows one to develop new applications in the cloud or on premises using the same developer tools, run time and production environment.

As one might imagine, the development, deployment and management environment comes through either Cisco Hyperflex Private Cloud Infrastructure (in the case of on-premises) or Google Container Engine (in public cloud).
