CoreOS + containers is a killer combination, but it’s new territory for most teams – our engineers will provide the guidance to take advantage of all CoreOS features and ensure your apps are running well.
Higher touch, on-site consultation is available for Managed Linux customers. CoreOS engineers can help your team deploy distributed systems on CoreOS, provide guidance on containerizing your applications and more.
Training and certification for CoreOS is also available.
CoreOS redefines the operating system into a smaller, more minimal Linux distribution. Traditional distros package unused software that leads to dependency conflicts and needlessly increases the attack surface.
CoreOS contains a small base and allows you to have full control over all dependencies through the use of containers. Think of them as your package manager.
Isolate dependencies for each application separately. For example, don’t worry about conflicting with other versions of Python. Include the version you require in the container and upgrade on your schedule.
CoreOS hosts have support for containers straight out of the box. Containers give you sane, repeatable deployments without Chef or Puppet.
CoreOS is uniquely architected to provide painless updates of the operating system. Updates are pushed onto your machines instead of being applied by an admin or script.
This keeps your company more secure and frees up your operations team for more important tasks. CoreOS lets you focus more on development and less on administration.
CoreUpdate, with a web-based interface, is how you control when your machines update, and how quickly an update is rolled out across the cluster.
