The CoreOS team has been an active participant in the Kubernetes project since Google began the process of open-sourcing this successor to their internal Borg and Omega systems. We not only believe Kubernetes is the right architecture for modern application infrastructure, we see it as an agent of transformation for IT organizations. We coined the acronym GIFEE – “Google Infrastructure for Everyone” – to help summarize what Kubernetes means for businesses.

Today we’re announcing a new training series from the engineers at CoreOS. Join us for classes on Kubernetes, containers, and CoreOS Linux. You can sign up today for public classes starting in September, or contact us to request a private class for your company.

During the last three years at CoreOS, we've been building components and products focused on enabling businesses to run containers anywhere with enterprise-grade security, reliability, and scalability. CoreOS is delivering what we like to call GIFEE: Google's Infrastructure for Everyone. Google pioneered container-based distributed infrastructure, and demonstrated both the value and the methods of deploying and running large-scale distributed systems.

Today is an exciting day for us at CoreOS, and even more, it reveals the value and growth of the industry delivering the next major area of infrastructure advancement. Today CoreOS is backed by an additional $28 million in Series B investment from venture capital investors. This round is lead by GV (formerly Google Ventures), with Intel Capital, Accel, Fuel Capital, KPCB, Work-Bench Ventures, and Y Combinator Continuity fund participating. This brings CoreOS's total venture financing to $48 million in the course of the past two and a half years.

The movement around containers and distributed systems represents one of the largest shifts in infrastructure platforms since cloud itself. Such a change creates a lot of confusion, particularly around platforms that are seen to be similar in nature.

Today we are announcing work to bring the worlds of VMs and containers together, particularly around OpenStack powered by Kubernetes.

To help you achieve #GIFEE (Google's Infrastructure For Everyone Else), we now offer you various ways to experience Tectonic to match where you are on your journey to containerizing applications.
