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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A new API object type called a Custom Resource Definition (CRD) will replace the existing Third Party Resource (TPR) extension mechanism over the next two Kubernetes releases. In the upcoming Kubernetes version 1.7, CRDs are introduced into the beta API namespace for features designated for official support. By version 1.8, CRDs will be the supported mechanism and TPRs will be entirely deprecated.

Recently, we released a study conducted by technology research and advisory company 451 Research investigating containers adoption by enterprises across a range of industries. The study included responses from over 200 enterprise IT decision makers, mostly from large enterprises within the US, including CTO’s, VP’s, and directors of IT, IT Ops and DevOps.
