Microsoft acquires Berlin startup Kinvolk, a developer of open source cloud-based projects

Microsoft is bolstering its Azure hybrid container platform capabilities with the purchase of Berlin-based startup Kinvolk, the company behind Flatcar Container Linux, an alternative to CoreOS Container Linux designed for container workloads. Founded in 2015, Kinvolk will henceforth contribute to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Azure Arc, “and future projects that will expand Azure’s hybrid container platform capabilities and increase Microsoft’s upstream open source contributions in the Kubernetes and container space,” Microsoft wrote in a blog post as it continues to embrace open source and Linux.
