So let me get this straight. You want to build an external version of the Borg task scheduler. One of our most important competitive advantages. The one we don’t even talk about externally. And, on top of that, you want to open source it? The story of how Kubernetes came to be starts here. It was Summer 2013, and we were in a room with Urs Holzle, head of technical infrastructure and chief architect of many of Google’s most important network innovations. We were pitching him our idea to build an open source container management system. But it wasn’t going well. Or so we thought.
