A reliable key-value store gives distributed systems a common substrate for consistent configuration and coordination. One such system is the etcd project, an open source key-value store created by CoreOS. It is the heart of many production distributed systems and is the data store for Kubernetes, among other projects.

Trying CoreOS Tectonic is now as easy as downloading and installing it to your laptop. Today we are introducing the Tectonic Sandbox, a new way to see for yourself what CoreOS's enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform can do for your business. This new Sandbox joins our existing Tectonic trial experience designed for production use on multiple clouds and environments including AWS, Azure, bare metal, and more.

I'm often asked why we started CoreOS. I've written before about our mission to secure the internet. Recently, I was challenged further: Why do you care about securing the internet? This question gets at the heart of CoreOS, and deserves a well articulated answer. Securing the internet is key to preserving our privacy, and ultimately our freedoms.

Today's fast-moving enterprises have an urgent need to modernize their IT operations, and increasingly they are choosing Kubernetes as a tool to help them meet that challenge.

CoreOS is happy to announce that we are a member of the founding class of the Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) program. Created by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), KCSP certification is designed to help customers identify companies that provide services to assist with the implementation, adoption and production usage of Kubernetes within their environments.

We have a busy events and webinar schedule for September; don’t miss our upcoming content about running CoreOS Tectonic on Azure, which we recently announced as stable. Meet us at X17, Open Source Summit North America, MesosCon, and more!

Our mission at CoreOS is to secure the next generation of the internet by automating essential operational tasks for IT infrastructure. One important way we're delivering automated operations in Tectonic 1.7.1, which shipped in mid-August, is by enabling fully automated, one-click updates of the entire Kubernetes cluster with zero downtime, across patch and minor versions alike.

Here at CoreOS, we're always working along with the open source community to improve and enhance etcd, a distributed key-value store created by CoreOS. For the upcoming etcd 3.3 series, one of the challenges we're tackling is improving the performance and resiliency of linearizable reads using a distributed systems technique known as leasing.

CoreOS delivered the latest version 1.7.1 of the Tectonic enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform last week, adding a host of new features and improvements. One of the biggest stories in the release is stable support for deploying Tectonic clusters on Microsoft Azure.

Today, CoreOS is proud to announce Tectonic 1.7.1, the latest version of our enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform, now with support for the Microsoft Azure cloud. We've been hard at work ensuring Tectonic customers gain the most reliable, secure, and easy way to deploy and manage Kubernetes, both on-premises and in whatever cloud configurations they desire. And today we are announcing that we’ve enhanced automated operations to enable customers running Tectonic 1.6.7 to upgrade to the new version with just a single click.
