Today we extend our appreciation to the teams who created Prometheus, the cloud native monitoring project, and look ahead to reflect on the future of the project.

Three years ago the community celebrated the first production-ready release of Kubernetes, what is now a de facto standard system for container orchestration, at the 1.0 launch day at OSCON. Today we celebrate Kubernetes to not only acknowledge it on the project’s birthday but to also thank the community for the extensive work and collaboration to drive the project forward.

As we continue our work in upstream Kubernetes development to enable it for the community and enterprises alike, we’d like to celebrate the upcoming delivery of Kubernetes 1.11 expected this week.

We recently open sourced the Operator Framework and today we’re happy to share the next milestone: Operator Metering. Operator Metering is designed to help you gain more knowledge about the usage and costs to run and manage Kubernetes native applications (Operators). This joins the other Operator Framework components – SDK and Lifecycle Management – that are a part of the Operator Framework family, an open source toolkit designed to manage Operators in a more effective, automated, and scalable way.

In the months since CoreOS was acquired by Red Hat, we’ve been building on our vision of helping companies achieve greater operational efficiency through automation. Today at Red Hat Summit we’ve outlined our roadmap for how we plan to integrate the projects and technologies started at CoreOS with Red Hat’s, bringing software automation expertise to customers and the community.

To help make it easier to build Kubernetes applications, Red Hat and the Kubernetes open source community today share the Operator Framework – an open source toolkit designed to manage Kubernetes native applications, called Operators, in a more effective, automated, and scalable way.

The cloud native community is gathering in Copenhagen next week for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe! Here’s your guide to the talks and events you won’t want to miss. Meet the Red Hat and CoreOS team members all week long, May 1-4 at booth D-E01.

Kubernetes 1.10 is here

 

Kubernetes, a leading open source project for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications, announced version 1.10 today. Among the key features of this release are support for the Container Storage Interface (CSI), API aggregation, a new mechanism for supporting hardware devices, and more.

It's also the first release since CoreOS joined Red Hat. CoreOS already had the opportunity to work closely with our new Red Hat colleagues through the Kubernetes community and we now have the opportunity to redouble our efforts to help forward Kubernetes as an open source and community-first project.

Today we are issuing patches for two newly disclosed security vulnerabilities affecting all versions of Tectonic and Kubernetes versions 1.3 through 1.10. The vulnerabilities have been assigned CVE-2017-1002101 and CVE-2017-1002102, respectively.

The ability to autoscale workloads based on metrics such as CPU and memory usage is one of the most powerful features of Kubernetes. Of course, to enable this feature we first need a method of gathering and storing these metrics. Today this is most often accomplished using Heapster, but this method can be cumbersome and support from the various contributors to the project has been inconsistent – and in fact it may soon be phased out.
