Scaling Kubernetes Microservices on OpenStack With TOSCA Orchestration Pt II of II

In my previous post, I described orchestrating a hybrid architecture that included Kubernetes, Kubernetes hosted microservices, and a cloud hosted database, all running on Openstack. That post described how everything was deployed, but left the implementation of post deployment dynamism to the imagination. This post finishes the story. Try the...

Scaling Kubernetes Microservices on OpenStack With TOSCA Orchestration Pt I of II

In a previous post, I converted a Fabric-based plugin implementation to an Openstack agent-based implementation. In this episode, I finally reached one of the key goals of this long running effort; to automate scaling on Kubernetes using Cloudify native means. The path to this goal leads through some of the...

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...

In my last post, I described an initial...

Cloudify Meets Kubernetes - Container Management & Orchestration on Bare Metal

Cloudify lives at the extreme end of the "unopinionated" spectrum of application orchestration tools. Kubernetes (, 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...

Docker...Containers, Microservices and Orchestrating the Whole Symphony

Originally posted at 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...
