Trying CoreOS Tectonic is now as easy as downloading and installing it to your laptop. Today we are introducing the Tectonic Sandbox, a new way to see for yourself what CoreOS's enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform can do for your business. This new Sandbox joins our existing Tectonic trial experience designed for production use on multiple clouds and environments including AWS, Azure, bare metal, and more.

I'm often asked why we started CoreOS. I've written before about our mission to secure the internet. Recently, I was challenged further: Why do you care about securing the internet? This question gets at the heart of CoreOS, and deserves a well articulated answer. Securing the internet is key to preserving our privacy, and ultimately our freedoms.

Today's fast-moving enterprises have an urgent need to modernize their IT operations, and increasingly they are choosing Kubernetes as a tool to help them meet that challenge.

Our mission at CoreOS is to secure the next generation of the internet by automating essential operational tasks for IT infrastructure. One important way we're delivering automated operations in Tectonic 1.7.1, which shipped in mid-August, is by enabling fully automated, one-click updates of the entire Kubernetes cluster with zero downtime, across patch and minor versions alike.

CoreOS delivered the latest version 1.7.1 of the Tectonic enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform last week, adding a host of new features and improvements. One of the biggest stories in the release is stable support for deploying Tectonic clusters on Microsoft Azure.

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.

Marc Andreessen famously declared that software is eating the world. Business processes and even whole industries are being displaced by software, and the trend isn't slowing down. The pressure to deliver change faster continues to mount in tandem with software’s increasing reach and sophistication. Continuous delivery and deployment processes are becoming the norm to shorten development cycles as organizations adapt to stay competitive.

At this year's CoreOS Fest, Tectonic customers joined our CEO Alex Polvi onstage to share their experiences at different stages of container adoption. Four leaders from innovative teams at premier companies shared their experiences and results modernizing infrastructure with Tectonic, the enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform.

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.
