Continued: Journal durability for the impatient

In this second post of our series on making systemd's journald more efficient, we take a close look at journald's mmap() usage. Check out Part 1 of the journald performance post if you missed it, or need a refresher.

One of our missions here at CoreOS is to help secure the internet by allowing organizations of all sizes to deploy secure and scalable infrastructure in the same way internet giants such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook do. In short we are striving to make GIFEE a reality by working with the community that is developing Kubernetes. Today we are giving a preview of two Kubernetes 1.4 features we implemented upstream with the wider Kubernetes community.

Today CoreOS is excited to announce support for the rkt container engine in Minikube, a tool to run Kubernetes locally.

The CoreOS rkt container engine is designed for security and production deployment scenarios.

This video shows how to use rkt’s modular stage1 isolation mechanism to choose the process isolation model that makes the most sense for your application. By executing alternate stage1s, you can either expose more host resources to your application, or segment it away from your host further by running it inside of a rkt-managed virtual machine.

To bring the value of Kubernetes to more enterprises, today we are excited to announce a private preview for Tectonic on additional operating systems: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and CentOS 7.2. Tectonic is still fully supported on CoreOS Container Linux.

We are currently opening this up to a limited number of customers. If you're interested in testing out support, please submit your contact information and a member of the team will be in touch.

Earlier this year we released rkt, the container engine by CoreOS, in its first stable version, and since then the project development has continued apace. Release after release, rkt keeps proceeding towards its goal of providing a stable and minimal container runtime. Here, we will take a small tour of the project’s status and some of its more notable changes since 1.0.

Today CoreOS is thrilled to announce the dates and location for the second annual Tectonic Summit, the invite-only event for enterprise Kubernetes.

Join cloud native, container and Kubernetes leaders for Tectonic Summit 2016 on December 12 and 13 at the Conrad Hotel in New York City.

Recently CoreOS released Tectonic 1.3, which includes a new dashboard, enterprise authorization framework, easier installation and many new features from the latest Kubernetes release.

As we interact with innovative teams from enterprises of various sizes, we understand that users are seeking solutions to more effectively scale containers in Continuous Integration (CI) pipelines.

This short recording shows one solution that addresses these scaling challenges by using Tectonic:

This September, come see CoreOS and learn about careers or one of the many community events we have in store!

The new etcd3 API introduces powerful new primitives that advance the system’s capabilities beyond the limits of etcd2. As part of evaluating the effectiveness of etcd3, we spent considerable effort developing distributed concurrency algorithms using the new API.
