Boston, MA – (August 16, 2023)Fairwinds, the leading provider of software for Kubernetes platform engineers to standardize and enable development best practices, today announced it has been named a Gartner Cool Vendor in the ‘Cool Vendors in Container Management’ report.1  Published on August 3, 2023, the report was written by Dennis Smith, Arun Chandrasekaran, and Tony Iams.

“Fairwinds Insights has focused on providing Kubernetes guardrails to platform teams that help drive consistency and standardization so they can get the promised value out of Kubernetes.
