Cloudify Kubernetes Plugin 2.0 Release – More K8s Awesomeness
If you’re not familiar yet with our Kubernetes integration, suffice it to say that we believe the platform is a really important part of the container and microservices ecosystem. In fact, we have written quite a bit about the Cloudify Kubernetes Provider integration as well as the Kubernetes Plugin. Just as a quick refresher, the Plugin […]
Introducing the Cloudify Kubernetes Plugin for Orchestrating the Deployment of Applications on K8s Clusters in a Multi-Cloud Environment
Kubernetes has already become a household name in the container management space since it dropped in 2014. When it comes to orchestration, most DevOps people come back to us with “Why orchestrate Kubernetes – it’s already an orchestrator of containers?” The answer is simple – diverse workloads! Yes, you want containers, but you also need […]
Building Large-Scale Services with Micro-Services and TOSCA
In this article, Nati Shalom details how microservices can be used in a model-driven manner, with TOSCA, to create and manage larger services at scale.
Orchestrating A Kubernetes Managed Virtual Network Function With Cloudify
This post explores the process of containerizing Quagga and deploying it using Kubernetes.
Orchestrating Kubernetes On OpenStack
In my previous post, I discussed enhancing the original, basic Kubernetes plugin into a version that was reasonably functional. That version was designed to use Fabric and operate on preexisting machines (virtual or “bare metal”). This post discusses the changes needed to create the same hybrid deployment as before, but hosted on OpenStack. Try […]
Cloudify Meets Kubernetes – Enhancing The Integration
Integrating Cloudify with Kubernetes is compelling for those with hybrid environments (containers, virtualization, cloud, bare metal, even hardware), who would like to leverage Kubernetes’ container management instead of Cloudify’s, and/or leverage Cloudify’s event driven workflows to perform autoscaling or other automatic processes. In my last post, I described an initial integration with Kubernetes, which […]
Domo Arigato, OpenStack Tokyo!
It’s on, folks! Tokyo is not just around the corner, it’s here – and OpenStack peddlers, developers, fanboys, newbies will all be out there to hear about how everyone is using OpenStack to improve the open cloud initiative and push this amazing project forward. Our own Cloudify team will also be making their way […]
Cloudify Meets Kubernetes – Container Management & Orchestration on Bare Metal
Cloudify lives at the extreme end of the “unopinionated” spectrum of application orchestration tools. Kubernetes (http://www.kubernetes.io), on the other hand, is a container orchestration system that is very opinionated. For those committed to a container based deployment architecture, it’s a great choice, especially for supporting microservices, a good reference on this can be found […]
Docker…Containers, Microservices and Orchestrating the Whole Symphony
Originally posted at opensource.com The microservices architecture is far from a new trend, it’s generally accepted as a better way to build apps these days. The common way to build apps was, until a few years ago, the monolithic approach – which was, if you look at it from a functional perspective, basically one […]
