CoreOS Tectonic is Certified Kubernetes

 

Today CoreOS is pleased to announce that CoreOS Tectonic, our enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform, has passed the software conformance tests administered by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to become one of the first fully Certified Kubernetes offerings on the market.

Kubernetes makes management of complex environments easy, but to ensure availability it's crucial to have operational insight into the Kubernetes components and all applications running on the cluster. At CoreOS, we believe monitoring is the backbone of a good production environment, which is why we are investing in development of the Prometheus monitoring system. A project hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), Prometheus has rapidly gained popularity for infrastructure and application monitoring alike, and today it's taking its next step forward.

Tectonic 1.7.5 has arrived, and this release is all about monitoring. Container-based infrastructure is highly dynamic, which is great for agility, but enterprise-ready Kubernetes means having the right tools in place to monitor your clusters and respond quickly when problems arise. That's what Tectonic delivers.

Security researchers have recently discovered multiple remotely exploitable vulnerabilities affecting all users of Kubernetes 1.5.0 through 1.7.6. While the risk of an attacker successfully exploiting these flaws is relatively low, the vulnerabilities could potentially allow arbitrary code execution or DoS attacks and thus demand immediate attention. CoreOS Tectonic users can be assured, however, that patches are now available and can be applied with a single click or automatically, if configured.

Today, along with the rest of the Kubernetes community, we’re cheering the release of Kubernetes 1.8. The momentum within the community continues to grow as organizations embrace Kubernetes as the leading platform for container orchestration, and this release continues the Kubernetes community's commitment to security and extensibility with work on stabilizing existing features, even as new ones are added.

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.

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.

CoreOS Tectonic and Microsoft Azure blog topper Cloud and containerized infrastructure have transformed the way enterprises deploy IT workloads, and Kubernetes has emerged as a leading orchestration tool for application containers. That's why we're thrilled to announce that CoreOS and Microsoft have partnered to bring CoreOS Tectonic, an enterprise-ready Kubernetes solution, to Microsoft Azure.

CoreOS is celebrating its fourth birthday this month. Join us in a look back at the past four years and at where we are heading, and celebrate with us!

CoreOS was born in 2013

Alex Polvi and Brandon Philips co-founded CoreOS with the fundamental idea of securing the backend of the internet via automated operations. Remember this scrappy company born out of a garage in Palo Alto?

CoreOS released version 1.6.7 of the Tectonic enterprise ready Kubernetes platform today. This automatic update is immediately available for clusters running Tectonic 1.6.x, or downloadable with a free license for investigating new deployments.
