It wasn't that long ago that OpenStack was the hot new kid on the infrastructure block. That just might change with the latest release of OpenStack, code-named Queens.
The Kubernetes community has released the Kubernetes 1.10 beta, which means you can now try out some of the new features and give your feedback to the release team ahead of the official release.
The cloud is becoming commoditized; what's important is how you use it.
There are a lot of differences between OpenStack and Kubernetes, but one thing they both share is that setting them up is far from trivial.
With all the interest in the Kubernetes community we saw at the OpenStack Summit, we want to keep you up to date with all the goings-on.
We ran out of time for questions and answers at our "What's new in OpenStack Ocata" webinar, so here they are.
We did a live webinar talking about 157 new features in OpenStack Ocata, but here's our standard 53.
Ideally, users should be able to have the same experience (such as the VNC console) to access their nova instances -- even if they're created by Ironic.
The next OpenStack summit will be held in Boston May 8 through May 11, 2017, and the agenda is in progress.
Managing thousands containers can be challenging, but if you want to know how Kubernetes will behave at scale we might be able to provide an answer. At KubeCon in Seattle, we shared the data we collected in our scale lab, which consists of 500 physical nodes. Using virtual machines, we can simulate up to 5000 Kubernetes minions running actual workloads, and our tests are designed to reveal how Kubernetes behaves while managing a complex application (in this case, OpenStack services) at large scale.
OpenStack is no longer the new, exciting kid on the block. That title has clearly gone to containers and container orchestration systems such as Kubernetes. So what does that mean for OpenStack?
