Kelvion New Plate Heat Exchanger

For businesses looking to adopt software containers and modern infrastructure, CoreOS is delivering its Tectonic stack and Kubernetes training. With CoreOS‘s release of version 1.3 of Tectonic, businesses can get started with new features that address enterprise requirements for deploying application containers in production with Kubernetes.

As enterprises move to deploy secure, agile, scalable infrastructure, thousands of companies and developers have chosen to orchestrate and manage their containers with Kubernetes.

As a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) maintainer of the Kubernetes project, CoreOS led efforts on a number of enterprise features in Kubernetes that are available today in Tectonic v1.3, including:

  • Authorization framework – A Role-based Access Control (RBAC) authorization framework for managing user rights on a cluster, added in Kubernetes v1.3.
  • Enterprise authentication – Better LDAP support means enterprises can leverage their existing authentication infrastructure.
  • Improved scalability – A new version 3 of the etcd cluster configuration store for improved scalability and performance.
  • Streamlined easier installation – Graphical installation tool for bare metal environments (in beta) and a graphical installer for users on AWS Cloud.
  • Monitoring at the cluster level – Improve the manageability of Kubernetes in the enterprise with cluster-native monitoring capabilities, as requested by customers and the community.

Additionally, with the updated Tectonic Console, all levels of infrastructure team members would have a high level graphical view of the state of the cluster. Tectonic Console would now provide visualization of Distributed Trusted Computing (DTC) node status, and give devops teams the ability to scale cluster application deployments at the push of a button.

CoreOS continues to work alongside companies seeking an enterprise Kubernetes solution,” said Brandon Philips, CTO of CoreOS. “We’re working with the Kubernetes community to drive enterprise-minded features in the project. With our mission to bring the benefits of GIFEE container cluster infrastructure to today’s businesses, we guide and work together with companies on their long term strategies to adopt modern infrastructure, ready for production requirements.”
