Kubernetes is on track to take over a significant chunk of container market. According to a recent survey by CNCF, 83% of respondents use Kubernetes in production.
The enthusiastic adoption of Kubernetes by DevOps teams and the support it has received from the open source community means this number could go higher in the future. However, even if it remains at current levels, 83% of the market is a considerable chunk to play around with.
The same CNCF survey, however, also identifies multiple challenges facing both Kubernetes and the broader container orchestration market. Networking, Storage, Monitoring, Security, lack of training, and of course cost management are just some of the challenges identified.
