This week on The New Stack Context podcast we talk with Pivotal Director of Technical Marketing Dan Baskette and Pivotal Senior Staff Engineer Mark Fisher about Knative, which is a new tool Google and a few other partners such as Pivotal built to help developers build functions on top of Kubernetes. Also joining us in this episode is TNS San Francisco correspondent Alex Handy, who spoke about some of the other news from this week's Google Next 2018 conference.
Knative is an open source software layer which turns Kubernetes into a runtime for serverless functions. Google announced the project and released it on GitHub this week — and it seems to be the news of the week out of Google Next. Baskette contributed a post to the site this week, offering all the technical details of Knative. The New Stack sponsor Pivotal has provided the eventing model from its own Project Riff to Knative and is building its upcoming Pivotal Function Service on Knative.

Four years ago, the virtualization industry was blown wide open by the arrival of Docker — a format which made it possible to stage workloads and scale them without the overhead of VMware, Xen, or KVM virtual machines. Last year, Docker Inc. graciously donated its container standard to the Open Container Initiative, run by the Linux Foundation — a neutral governing party. The idea was to end all the bickering over what the container format should be. Instead, what’s happening is a fresh re-opening of the debate over why there should be just one.
