Tectonic is the universal Kubernetes solution for deploying, managing and securing containers anywhere and will unite the benefits of OpenStack with the container-based tooling of Kubernetes. With CoreOS by your side, OpenStack will be easier to manage and deploy using the best of container infrastructure.
This tech preview of OpenStack on Kubernetes provides high availability with simple scaling and control plane self-healing, virtual machine live migration, and the full complement of OpenStack IaaS features – deployed, managed, and scaled with Kubernetes automation. With today's preview, you can deploy OpenStack on Kubernetes in 15 minutes with a single kpm command.
Kubernetes's features, flexibility and scalability make Stackanetes a robust solution for managing OpenStack. The combined effort between CoreOS, Intel, and Mirantis demonstrates that Kubernetes is a mature solution for improving the lifecycle management, monitoring, and scaling of complex production platforms like OpenStack.
OpenStack has a reputation for complexity that can sometimes rival its power. Kubernetes cluster orchestration makes OpenStack much easier to deploy and manage. OpenStack is composed of several stateless applications that communicate to provide services – a familiar model in the world of microservices that Kubernetes and containers call home. Of course, OpenStack also relies on a set of stateful data stores that underpin those services. The Stackanetes work demonstrates these applications can also be deployed, scaled, and managed by Kubernetes.
