CloudLinux, the maker of this operating system for hosting providers, has announced the release of KuberDock 1.5. KuberDock 1.5 has upgraded to Docker 1.12 version for better stability, security, and reliability.
After a month of private beta, KuberDock’s latest version is now available for purchase to new customers and a free upgrade to KuberDock current customers. It is the result of feature implementations based on customers’ feedback, and company’s efforts to make KuberDock more reliable and stable.
KuberDock 1.5 would yield a new level of reliability, important performance improvement, and create new opportunities to rapidly implement new features in the KuberDock platform.
KuberDock is now based on the Calico solution for networking. With almost no overheads, it would produce immediate advantages such as improved scalability, more reliable and flexible isolation at pod and cluster levels, and out-of-the-box support of popular public cloud platforms including AWS Cloud, GCE, and DigitalOcean. It would also simplify KuberDock maintenance due to global community involvement in the solution development and stabilization.
New with KuberDock version 1.5 is the support for ZFS local storage backend as an alternative to XFS. ZFS file system natively manages both disks and volumes similarly to RAID technologies, protects data against disk errors caused by bugs in the firmware, malfunctions of the hardware and even bad cables, corrects any error using redundant data, offers a sophisticated layered caching, and much more. KuberDock is now armed with file system consistent backups based on ZFS, which is the default Local Storage backend when deploying KuberDock in AWS Cloud.
Hosting providers might also appreciate Shared IP feature improvement – KuberDock version 1.5 has added CloudFlare to the list of available DNS providers.
KuberDock allows hosting providers to expand their application hosting portfolio by offering access to 100K+ of dockerized apps. Dozens of companies are now deploying Dockerized application hosting powered by the KuberDock platform to their customers.
