"Maintaining updated software in a distributed system has historically been complex and difficult to manage. Businesses are seeking infrastructure solutions that enable everything as a service with simplicity across environments in the cloud and data center," said Gary Chen, Research Manager, Software Defined Compute, IDC. "With the availability of self-driving infrastructure in CoreOS Tectonic, organizations will be able to take the next step in secure, modernized infrastructure, enabling updates without intervention in their containerized and Kubernetes environments."
Self-driving Kubernetes with Tectonic
Along with the most current release of Kubernetes, Tectonic also includes:
- Installers to help get up and running quickly,
- A console to visually investigate your cluster and control self-driving features, and
- Security features that integrate with your existing security frameworks.
Additionally, CoreOS Tectonic is now immediately available at no cost for use on up to 10 nodes. Tectonic is priced per node for enterprises using more than 10 nodes and includes 24/7 support.
CoreOS: Experts in open source and Kubernetes
CoreOS created and maintains the lightweight self-updating operating system, Container Linux, bringing security and portability to containers. The company maintains and contributes to etcd, the cornerstone of distributed systems, and is a top five contributor to Kubernetes, the open source, enterprise grade container orchestration and management tool that started at Google and now is housed under the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). All projects have grown significantly with thriving communities to support them.
"Open source is at the heart of everything CoreOS does. We build the hardest parts of infrastructure with the community to make cloud native infrastructure like Kubernetes work well for all," said Alex Polvi, CEO of CoreOS. "CoreOS Tectonic is the upstream Kubernetes platform that has taken containerized infrastructure and made it easy for enterprises to consume. Businesses avoid any lock in by having the latest pure open source versions."
Polvi presented Tectonic at Tectonic Summit 2016, the enterprise Kubernetes event, in New York City on December 12. Visit the CoreOS website to get and use Tectonic now.
