Here Is Why:

Kubernetes has revolutionized IT by providing the ability for enterprises to deploy a common cloud platform for their business applications across multiple clouds, delivering agility, consistency, and reductions in costs and complexity.

Cloud native data services is a critical part of this transformation, and enables a consistent software defined IT infrastructure across edge, private clouds, and hybrid cloud and multi-cloud deployments.
