Investment announcement! We raise a total of $8.3M in Seed Funding, led by Nauta Capital and followed by btov Partners.
BIG BANG!!! We open source our core software KKP and change the name of the company from Loodse to Kubermatic. (After four years of trying to explain how to pronounce “Loodse”, we decided to give up).
We open source KubeOne – our Kubernetes lifecycle management tool, which automates deployment and operations for single Kubernetes clusters.
Kubermatic joins the MELLODDY consortium.
Kubermatic becomes one of the first twenty Kubernetes Certified Service Providers (KCP) and Kubernetes Training Partners (KTP). Just three years later, the cloud native landscape lists 200 KCPs and 50 KTPs.
Convinced that organizations would get to a point where they would adopt multiple, rather than single Kubernetes clusters, we launch the beta version of Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP).
We receive the German Accelerator Tech award for exceptionally promising tech startups.
We organize the first ContainerDays (CDS) conference with more than 200 container enthusiasts in Hamburg harbor. (At the time, these numbers were very exciting, considering that KubeCon Europe had about 400 participants that year. Looking at CDS’s participation numbers today, it’s truly amazing how much this event has grown.)
