SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For businesses looking to adopt software containers and modern infrastructure, CoreOS is delivering the Tectonic stack and Kubernetes training. Today with CoreOS's release of version 1.3 of Tectonic, the infrastructure platform that enables enterprises to securely and reliably run containers with Kubernetes anywhere, businesses can get started with new features that address enterprise requirements for deploying application containers in production with Kubernetes.
