summit 2016

Today we are announcing additional speakers, sponsors, and the first look at the second annunal Tectonic Summit's agenda.

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.

Note: The instructions in this post are out of date. To try out the Prometheus Operator, view the latest Prometheus docs for an up-to-date guide to get started.

Today, CoreOS introduced a new class of software in the Kubernetes community called an Operator. An Operator builds upon the basic Kubernetes resource and controller concepts but includes application domain knowledge to take care of common tasks. They reduce the complexity of running distributed systems and help you focus on the desired configuration, not the details of manual deployment and lifecycle management.

A Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) is a person that operates an application by writing software. They are an engineer, a developer, who knows how to develop software specifically for a particular application domain. The resulting piece of software has an application's operational domain knowledge programmed into it.

Our team has been busy in the Kubernetes community designing and implementing this concept to reliably create, configure, and manage complex application instances atop Kubernetes.

KubeCon is on our minds in November, but it won't be the only show this month! Come see us at the following events:

Today we announce the release of version 1.4 of CoreOS Tectonic, our enterprise distribution of Kubernetes. Tectonic v1.4 incorporates self-hosted cluster technology, fixes a critical security vulnerability, and streamlines the user experience with our bare metal Installer, Console, and Identity services.

CoreOS is going to KubeCon! KubeCon / CloudNativeCon is the conference with Kubernetes leaders, users, and community members taking place November 7-8 in Seattle. Come see our talks, visit our booth, and join us for our evening events. We have six speakers giving 10+ talks, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to learn more from our experts. If you are interested in meeting 1:1 with someone on our team, submit a request.

During OpenStack Summit Austin, we partnered with Intel in an initiative aiming to automate and orchestrate the deployment and management of OpenStack with Kubernetes. Today, we are pleased to announce a technical preview of the project affectionately called "Stackanetes", available with the latest OpenStack release, "Newton". This tech preview of OpenStack on Kubernetes provides high availability with simple scaling and control plane self-healing, virtual machine live migration, and the full complement of OpenStack IaaS features – deployed, managed, and scaled with Kubernetes automation.

A critical security bug has been found and fixed in Kubernetes TLS client authentication. This vulnerability affects Kubernetes v1.4.2 and older, and has been fixed in Kubernetes v1.4.3 and higher.

Identifying Affected Systems

To determine if a Kubernetes cluster is currently running a vulnerable version, run:
