A partnership between OpenStack business Mirantis, and CoreOS has created a new integration of the Mirantis OpenStack distribution and CoreOS Tectonic, the first commercial platform for Kubernetes 1.0. The new joint offering is designed to deliver all the benefits of containers that DevOps teams need with the support and manageability large organisations need.
“Mirantis and CoreOS share a vision of helping DevOps teams create better software faster. Putting Kubernetes on top of OpenStack gives them flexibility in how they build their applications, letting them innovate quickly,” said Mirantis CMO and co-founder, Boris Renski.
In a blog post CoreOS’ Brian Redbeard said. “Our goal is to enable customers to run their businesses with Google-like infrastructure. With Tectonic, companies are able to focus on an application-first methodology thanks to being backed with a consistent, container-based, distributed infrastructure experience across their deployment environment of choice, whether it is in the cloud or on bare metal.”
As we all know Kubernetes is an open source system for managing Google-scale containerised applications across multiple hosts, providing basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of applications. It is lightweight, portable, extensible and self-healing. CoreOS’ Tectonic combines Kubernetes and the CoreOS software portfolio in an integrated package, including a management console for workflows and dashboards, an integrated registry to build and share Linux containers, and additional tools to automate deployment and customize rolling updates.
CoreOS has announced the Tectonic Preview for organisations to get early-access to the Tectonic Console, the curated CoreOS stack and 24x7 support for Kubernetes from CoreOS engineers.
