Another year has gone by, and what a year it's been! We've had tons of news in the Kubernetes and OpenShift world, and an increasing number of companies are adopting this technology, which is dominating the container-orchestration market.
Last year, I wrote an article about 2021's OpenShift and Kubernetes highlights, and guess what: This is the list for the year 2022! Once again, the Enable Sysadmin community did not fail to contribute their diverse and expert knowledge.
Have fun with this selection of Enable Sysadmin's top articles of 2022 about Kubernetes and OpenShift Container Platform (OCP).
