Container Linux

Security-centric CoreOS has brought a couple of major announcements. The open source platform has been transformed into Container Linux and added self-driving Kubernetes support.

The CoreOS team has designed self-driving Kubernetes to let organisations receive up to date experience with the latest patches and features. This new development brings auto updates alongside patches, upgrades and vulnerability responses.

“With the self-driving Kubernetes platform, users get the most advanced version of Kubernetes with the comfort of knowing that security updates can be patched seamlessly,” said Alex Polvi, CEO of CoreOS, in a blog post.

The self-driving Kubernetes is available as an option within CoreOS Tectonic that works on up to 10 nodes.

In addition to the latest Kubernetes development, CoreOS has differentiated the open source distribution with its brand by launching Container Linux. This platform comes along with a new logo.

“Over the years, CoreOS (the brand) has grown to represent not just a product but the leadership and expertise we provide to our customers and in the open community,” Polvi stated.

The original CoreOS platform has over one million unique instances on a monthly basis. The distribution was initially developed to secure the internet. However, it is now streamlined for containers and delivers an upgraded platform with the auto-update capability.
