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.

Today we're proud to announce Tectonic 1.8, the latest release of our enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform, is now available. This version, which we announced ahead of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America earlier this month, is the first to ship with a catalog of industry-first Open Cloud Services that enable users to deploy key infrastructure components with the ease of managed cloud vendor offerings but without cloud vendor lock-in.

Kubernetes is the highest velocity cloud-related open source project, and its pace of development isn't slowing down. This week the project will ship Kubernetes 1.9, its latest release, coming three months after Kubernetes 1.8. The new version includes a number of updates, fixes, and new features, as you can see in the release notes. Many of these changes are "under the hood," however – so rather than diving into a feature checklist here, it's worth looking at the overarching goals driving the next phase of Kubernetes development.

CoreOS recognized early on that orchestration would be the catalyst to launch containerized infrastructure into the mainstream. It's a tribute to the entire Kubernetes community that large enterprises already have Kubernetes clusters in production, and the roster keeps growing. So what do we see in the Kubernetes ecosystem's future as 2017 draws to a close? The CoreOS crystal ball reveals a few likely directions for the New Year.
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.

At CoreOS, we recognized early on that Kubernetes would become the go-to technology for managing containerized infrastructure in production. The project's openness has allowed it to be embraced by a veritable who's-who of technology vendors, integrators, and consumers. In fact, Kubernetes is now one of the fastest-growing projects in the history of open source. Yet while it may be tempting to assume that getting up and running with Kubernetes is as simple as downloading the code and deploying a cluster, the truth is that going this route can be easier said than done.
