I have never heard or seen ads for FreeBSD for Amazon/Google Cloud.
How do they recruit their developers.

Docker??Kubernetes?? It is Linux/Mac/Windows Based, like it is
dependent on kernel for these OS's.
Even Solaris doesn't support Docker/Kubernetes as such. My question is
what are the current alternatives for
these if Google/Amazon support Cloud for FreeBSD.

I also saw questions on Cassandra why limited to this?
