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:

The movement around containers and distributed systems represents one of the largest shifts in infrastructure platforms since cloud itself. Such a change creates a lot of confusion, particularly around platforms that are seen to be similar in nature.

Today we are announcing work to bring the worlds of VMs and containers together, particularly around OpenStack powered by Kubernetes.

Scalability is one of the important factors that make a successful distributed system. At CoreOS, we love Kubernetes and help drive the project forward through upstream contributions. Last November, we formed a team focused on Kubernetes scalability. We set out with a goal to test and understand Kubernetes cluster performance to gain insight into cluster behavior under large workloads and learn where there are performance issues.

Official installation of Kubernetes on CoreOS and AWS

As we head into AWS re:Invent next week, we are making it one step easier to use Kubernetes on AWS.

Today we are moving from Tectonic Private Preview to Tectonic Open Preview. In the Open Preview period, users are welcome to sign up and try out Tectonic at no cost. This is the last step before we hit general availability, and we welcome your feedback to guide the Tectonic roadmap as we move towards our GA launch. Sign up by going to and begin to experience the benefits of running Kubernetes and CoreOS first-hand.
