At CoreOS, we are focused on translating years of engineering experience and knowledge into software for automation, security and simplicity. The path starts with containers and is even more important across distributed systems – the orchestration of the cluster with Kubernetes – to make infrastructure easier to manage while teams can focus on their applications. With CoreOS Tectonic 1.4.5, the latest release of the enterprise Kubernetes solution, we have advanced some of this work of our AWS installer to make it easier to manage Kubernetes and AWS.

The CoreOS team has been an active participant in the Kubernetes project since Google began the process of open-sourcing this successor to their internal Borg and Omega systems. We not only believe Kubernetes is the right architecture for modern application infrastructure, we see it as an agent of transformation for IT organizations. We coined the acronym GIFEE – “Google Infrastructure for Everyone” – to help summarize what Kubernetes means for businesses.

During OpenStack Summit Austin, we partnered with Intel in an initiative aiming to automate and orchestrate the deployment and management of OpenStack with Kubernetes. Today, we are pleased to announce a technical preview of the project affectionately called "Stackanetes", available with the latest OpenStack release, "Newton". 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.

A critical security bug has been found and fixed in Kubernetes TLS client authentication. This vulnerability affects Kubernetes v1.4.2 and older, and has been fixed in Kubernetes v1.4.3 and higher.

Identifying Affected Systems

To determine if a Kubernetes cluster is currently running a vulnerable version, run:

CoreOS Tectonic enables everyone to operate their server systems like Google does; we call this GIFEE (Google’s Infrastructure For Everyone). Built on Kubernetes, the production-grade container orchestration system, Tectonic enables you to manage complex containerized application infrastructure from application source code to live load balancer.

One of our missions here at CoreOS is to help secure the internet by allowing organizations of all sizes to deploy secure and scalable infrastructure in the same way internet giants such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook do. In short we are striving to make GIFEE a reality by working with the community that is developing Kubernetes. Today we are giving a preview of two Kubernetes 1.4 features we implemented upstream with the wider Kubernetes community.

Today we’re announcing a new training series from the engineers at CoreOS. Join us for classes on Kubernetes, containers, and CoreOS Linux. You can sign up today for public classes starting in September, or contact us to request a private class for your company.

CoreOS is devoted to making Kubernetes continuously better and easier, from installation to the long-term lifecycle management required for critical infrastructure. Working closely with other CNCF Kubernetes maintainers and the wider community, CoreOS is active throughout the Kubernetes code base.

During the last three years at CoreOS, we've been building components and products focused on enabling businesses to run containers anywhere with enterprise-grade security, reliability, and scalability. CoreOS is delivering what we like to call GIFEE: Google's Infrastructure for Everyone. Google pioneered container-based distributed infrastructure, and demonstrated both the value and the methods of deploying and running large-scale distributed systems.

With the release of Kubernetes version 1.3 just around the corner, we’d like to share a preview of the CoreOS contributions helping guide the community toward this important milestone. Kubernetes is seeing a lot of early adoption in the enterprise and that continues to drive rapid feature development. The CoreOS team chose to concentrate on a few key areas that will further Kubernetes uptake in data centers around the world:
