It’s origins is from a internal Google’s Borg system and in development Kubernetes was called Project Seven, a nod to a friendlier Borg. See the seven spokes of the Kubernetes icon. But the name: Kubernetes originates from Greek, meaning helmsman or pilot. K8s is an abbreviation derived by replacing the 8 letters “ubernete” with “8”.
Kubernetes is definitely enterprise class but how do you get availability to explore and learn more about K8s??
