HPE & Micro Focus Launch Enterprise OpenStack & Kubernetes CaaS on SUSE Linux

SUSE Linux announced the release of their Kubernetes "Container as a Service" (CaaS) platform based on SUSE MicroOS at the LinuxCon (Beijing) in June of 2017. The SUSE CaaS Platform combines with the SUSE OpenStack 7 distribution to provide complete cloud data center management solutions for enterprise corporations, government agencies, higher education, & non-profit groups. SUSE Linux is one of the oldest and most trusted enterprise Linux distributions with more than 25 years experience in open source development. The SUSE CaaS Platform & OpenStack 7 distro both represent the latest products from a new corporate entity that combines professional programming teams from Micro Focus, HPE, Autonomy, & the original "Software und System-Entwicklung" (SUSE) Linux company based in Germany.

Lightweight Linux Distro for Native Kubernetes Web Server Clusters & SaaS Apps

CoreOS, the cloud software development company that manages the Container Linux distribution, recently released Tectonic version 1.64 (5/31/2017) which provides a quick and easy way to deploy a Kubernetes cluster for web/mobile app support on AWS or a self-hosted cloud server network. Core OS has over 100 open source software projects under company development on GitHub including etcd, flannel, rkt, Ignition, Clair, Matchbox, dex, and prometheus-operators. Tectonic is free to use for Kubernetes clusters of up to 10 nodes, after which a number of different enterprise, data center, & business licenses are available with professional technical support. Quay.io is another cloud SaaS product offered by CoreOS under proprietary license which helps DevOps teams manage container snapshots with Docker or rkt, Kubernetes clusters, Container Linux, & CoreOS Tectonic in production at scale. Quay.io includes container snapshot management features with integrated security, analytics, billing, monitoring, repository builds, automated backups, and version control for web server stack software with advanced GitHub, Bitbucket, or Gitlab support (Dockerfile Build Triggers).

Deis Releases "Draft" for Microsoft Azure: Automating Kubernetes with Helm

Written by: , Jun. 20, 2017

Draft: A Command Line Utility for the Auto-Production & Orchestration of Docker Containers

In April of 2017, Microsoft acquired Deis, a small start-up company specializing in container services for data center management, in order to integrate the Workflow, Helm, and Steward utilities for Kubernetes into the Azure Cloud platform. Workflow is a continuous integration suite for DevOps teams that enables Agile/Scrum workstation collaboration through distributed network teams with Docker, Kubernetes, and custom web server stack extensions for common programming languages like PHP, Python, Java, ASP.NET, Perl, Go, & Ruby on Rails. Helm charts allow for the easy management of build snapshots for Docker and Kubernetes containers at scale over millions of server nodes in the cloud. Steward is part of the Kubernetes incubator for Service Catalog development with Red Hat, IBM, & the Microsoft Deis team working together on the project. This month Microsoft announced the availability of Draft on the Azure Container Service, a new command line utility that speeds up the deployment and orchestration of Docker containers in Kubernetes clusters through the auto-installation of required stack software. Kubernetes can also be used with Apache Mesos, Rancher, and Docker Swarm on the Azure Cloud Platform to compete with similar product offerings from AWS, Google Cloud, Rackspace, & IBM.

Multi-Cloud Management with OpenShift, Cloud Foundry, Mirantis, & OnApp

Written by: , May 17, 2017

Integrated Network Administration for Hybrid Multi-Vendor Cloud Hosting Solutions

As the major IT corporations and web hosting companies continue to develop their own proprietary cloud data centers & software platforms, there has been an increase in the need for new multi-cloud management services that allow businesses and consumers to administer cloud hosting deployments across multiple vendors simultaneously. Multi-cloud management systems can be installed independently with Red Hat OpenShift (which supports OpenStack, AWS, KVM, VMware, & private cloud integration), while other platforms like Cloud Foundry, Mirantis, & OnApp Cloud offer ready-made PaaS products with easy to navigate web GUI administration of multi-vendor cloud cluster server network resources. The use of containers on cloud web servers like Docker & Kubernetes increases data portability through full-stack transfers that preserve the production and development requirements of complex, database-driven web and mobile applications with custom code, enabling continuous software delivery with version control updates from distributed Agile programming teams.

DockerCon 2017: New Developments in the Container Ecosystem

Written by: , Apr. 30, 2017

Cloud Server Management with Docker, Project Moby, & Kubernetes

Last week some of the world's leading developers of cloud hosting solutions came together at the annual Docker Convention in Austin, Texas to discuss ecosystem integration in the container and virtualization software communities. Docker is an open source framework that allows for the management of portable virtual network server environments that can be replicated and scaled in elastic cloud architecture. Docker can be deployed with the Kubernetes framework developed by Google that the company uses internally to manage billions of simultaneous server instances per day in business operations. Other examples of PaaS companies using Docker and Kubernetes are Cloud Foundry, Mirantis Cloud Platform, Red Hat OpenShift, and Bitnami stack snapshots.
