Tectonic, by CoreOS, Is GA

Generally Available

Today is a big day for us here at CoreOS. Tectonic, our Universal Kubernetes Solution to deploy, manage and secure containers, is now generally available. Powering Tectonic are many of our open source projects including: CoreOS Linux, etcd, rkt, flannel and dex. And we are excited to continue working with the open source community and Tectonic customers to build these important projects for containers, distributed systems and app-first infrastructure.

CoreOS Expands to Europe

We are also announcing our first European office will open later this year in Berlin. If you are based in Berlin and interested in developing app-first infrastructure software we would like to hear more: contact us at or stop by our CoreOS meetup on November 4. Also, several members of the team will be at the first systemd conference, systemd.conf, November 5-7, 2015, in Berlin later this week.

Joe Beda Now an Advisor

Joe Beda, a founder of Google Compute Engine and who helped to found Kubernetes, recently joined CoreOS as an advisor. We are excited to have his support and guidance.

“I joined the advisory team with CoreOS because of the innovation and speed to which CoreOS is addressing modern infrastructure needs for enterprises,” said Beda, CoreOS advisor. “Tectonic promises a solution made to manage all the complexities that distributed systems require and I am looking forward to working hand-in-hand with CoreOS to ensure that it is easy for anyone to deploy, move and securely run their applications anywhere.”

CoreOS Enterprise Registry is Now Quay Enterprise

A final announcement today is that CoreOS Enterprise Registry is now Quay Enterprise. Quay Enterprise is available either as a standalone product, or delivered as an application when you purchase Tectonic.

Today's announcements are important milestones for consistent, secure and manageable server infrastructure for everyone. The CoreOS Open Source projects are an important part of this style of infrastructure and we are excited to share these major milestones about Tectonic and Quay with you.
