The etcd team is pleased to announce etcd 3.2.0, the latest feature release in the 3.x series. This edition has proxy improvements, boosted backend concurrency, distributed coordination services, a slimmer Go client, JWT authentication, and more.
kubectl enables system administrators to interact with Kubernetes using a well-designed command-line interface. The common interactions include running services, grabbing pod logs, or identifying nodes inside of a cluster. For most Kubernetes users, these interactions are second nature.
Organizations around the world have begun adopting container-oriented infrastructure in the past few years. The first step on the path to container enlightenment is packaging software in container images. Thinking of containers as black boxes is extremely useful for the consistent deployment of software. However, this abstraction is a double-edged sword: If the container is a black box, how do deployers know what’s in it?
Since the first enterprise technology systems became available, they have promised greater freedom, efficiency and productivity, yet each successive generation demanded considerable capital expenditure for proprietary software that made the option of changing vendors prohibitive. Despite the unquestionable promise of cloud computing, the landscape is beginning to look familiarly restrictive. Today at CoreOS Fest, we are showing how CoreOS Tectonic is focused on breaking this cycle of restriction, all via open source technologies.
CoreOS develops modern container cluster infrastructure guided by a philosophy of automation in pursuit of security. Beginning with the automatically-updating Container Linux operating system and extending through the Tectonic Kubernetes platform for the enterprise, CoreOS aims to deliver “continuous availability” – automated deployment, lifecycle management, and security updates at each layer of the infrastructure stack.
CoreOS Fest is coming up next week! We look forward to welcoming you to the Kubernetes and distributed systems community event on Wednesday, May 31 and Thursday, June 1. We’ll see how the container ecosystem has developed and what new work is being done in the world of distributed systems. We’re anticipating insightful conversations on how to build, run, and secure your infrastructure with open source projects like Container Linux, etcd, Kubernetes, and more!
Prometheus is a monitoring system and time series database expressly designed for the highly distributed, automated, and scalable modern cluster architectures orchestrated by systems like Kubernetes. Prometheus has an operational model and a query language tailored for distributed, dynamic environments.
CoreOS Fest, the distributed systems, containers and Kubernetes conference, is coming up on May 31 and June 1 in San Francisco. This two-day event is the only 2017 West Coast conference for those in the Kubernetes community (new and seasoned alike) to come together and share stories, and we want to make sure you are all planning to be there. Last year, the event was in Berlin, and for its third year CoreOS is bringing the conference back to San Francisco.
Distributed systems commonly rely on a distributed consensus to coordinate work. Usually the systems providing distributed consensus guarantee information is delivered in order and never suffer split-brain conflicts.
