Titus, the Netflix container management platform, is now open source

Is Netflix Titus open source yet? Yes.

Titus powers critical aspects of the Netflix business, from video streaming, recommendations and machine learning, big data, content encoding, studio technology, internal engineering tools, and other Netflix workloads

So, why is Netflix open sourcing Titus?

...we’ve been asked over and over again, “When will you open source Titus?” It was clear that we were discussing ideas, problems, and solutions that resonated with those at a variety of companies, both large and small. We hope that by sharing Titus we are able to help accelerate like-minded teams, and to bring the lessons we’ve learned forward in the container management community.

The question is, is it too late for Titus to gain traction in a world where Kubernetes has seemingly already won?
