Over the past two years, we’ve seen a shift in the way organizations think about and manage distributed applications. At CoreOS, work toward this shift began with fleet, a simple distributed service manager released in 2014. Today, the community is seeing widespread adoption of Kubernetes, a system with origins at Google that is becoming the de facto standard for open source container orchestration.

Running a distributed system across many machines requires a sophisticated load balancing mechanism that can reconfigure itself quickly and reliably.

Today I'd like to introduce our latest project, fleet. fleet builds on etcd and systemd to provide a distributed, fault-tolerant platform for deploying applications on CoreOS clusters.
