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.

Head back to school this August at our Kubernetes trainings in New York and San Francisco. We’ll host a number of webinars on Kubernetes, Tectonic, and more. Also find the CoreOS team at Gartner Catalyst in San Diego, and at PromCon in Munich!

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.

After two years of work with major stakeholders in the community, we’re excited to announce that the Open Container Initiative (OCI) image and runtime specifications have now hit version 1.0. This means there is now a stable industry standard for application containers that has been created and approved by leaders in the container industry. This is an important milestone for the OCI community, and we look forward to working with our partners to further facilitate standards and innovation.

Kubernetes turns two this month, and there is so much to celebrate! Kubernetes is meeting the critical business needs of some of the world’s largest organizations, and the rate of adoption over the last year has affirmed CoreOS’s commitment to this groundbreaking project. As the creators of the Tectonic enterprise-ready Kubernetes distribution, CoreOS knows none of this would be possible without the upstream community. We’re proud to see the ranks of the Kubernetes community swell by so many talented and passionate people who help drive the project forward.

CoreOS is celebrating its fourth birthday this month. Join us in a look back at the past four years and at where we are heading, and celebrate with us!

CoreOS was born in 2013

Alex Polvi and Brandon Philips co-founded CoreOS with the fundamental idea of securing the backend of the internet via automated operations. Remember this scrappy company born out of a garage in Palo Alto?

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.

This July, celebrate the CoreOS and Kubernetes birthdays with us and more. We hope to see you at GopherCon, and at the Los Angeles Kubernetes meetup. We’re also hosting a number of informative webinars throughout the month.

Kubernetes, the open source platform for managing containers at scale, is releasing version 1.7 this week. Over 375 different individuals had a hand stabilizing and adding new features to this version, and we would like to thank all of them for their effort, and celebrate our team members that also contributed to this release. Version 1.7 brings in a new set of features, plus it continues the construction of new interfaces to make Kubernetes more extensible with a more reliable core.
