The rise of Kubernetes, cloud-native, and microservices spawned major changes in architectures and abstractions that developers use to create modern applications. In this multi-part series, I talk with some of the leading experts across various layers of the stack — from networking infrastructure to application infrastructure and middleware to telemetry data and modern observability concerns — to understand emergent platform engineering patterns that are affecting developer workflow around cloud-native. The next participant in our series is Tom Wilkie, CTO at Grafana Labs, where he leads engineering for Grafana Cloud.

Q: We are nearly a decade into containers and Kubernetes (Kubernetes was first released in Sept 2014). How would you characterize how Kubernetes has influenced modern thinking around distributed systems?
