Google Container Engine and Google Container Registry in our cloud age.

It is more and more exciting to see how Containers are streamlining the way that people deploy and manage applications. Henceforth developers and enterprises experience and implement:
More control of container cluster,
Easily store and access their container images from a private repository,
Make packaging apps easier,
better tools to unlock the promise of containerization,Easily set up a container cluster and manage their applications,
Can run a single command and their container cluster and more.

In this momentum, Google Container Engine can give you more control of your container cluster, while Google Container Registrycan allow you to easily store and access your container images from a private repository.

Here is how you can deploy and scale distributed load testing using Docker containers and Kubernetes.
