Google has released a beta version of their Container-VM Image to those interested in how they manage their Cloud. It is built to handle Docker and Kubernetes instances on the Google cloud, not for home usage on a small scale. If you are curious about the competition for Amazon, Microsoft and other providers of Clouded services you should follow the links from the post on The Register for a look. Be aware this is a beta, not all features are available and some of the ones which are may not be compatible with future updates but it is a great way to familiarize yourself with the inner lining of the Google Cloud Platform.
"Google's decided the Chromium OS is its preferred operating system for running containers in its own cloud. And why wouldn't it – the company says it uses it for its own services."
