Microsoft open sources its Azure Container Service Engine and launches deeper Kubernetes integration
The open source Kubernetes container management project is probably the most popular of the various competing container management services available today. The Cloud Native Compute Foundation, which plays host to the open source side of Kubernetes, is hosting its first Kubernetes conference this week and unsurprisingly, we'll see quite a bit of container-related news in the next few days.
CoreOS introduced a new container management concept today known as Operators, which they say will advance the Kubernetes project by offering more automated container management. What's more, they are open sourcing the technology. "We are introducing the concept of an 'Operator.'
VMware's Photon Platform is getting built-in support for container cluster manager Kubernetes through its new Kubernetes as a Service offering, unveiled Tuesday at the 2016 VMworld Europe conference.

To appreciate how Kubernetes manages storage pools that provide persistence to applications, we need to understand the architecture and the workflow related to application deployment. Kubernetes is used in various roles - by developers, system administrators, operations, and DevOps teams. Each of these personas, if you will, interact with the infrastructure in a distinct way.
This post is the first of a series of three tutorial articles introducing a sample, tutorial project, demonstrating how to provision Kubernetes on AWS from scratch, using Terraform and Ansible. [updated after publication] Part 1 (this post): Provision the infrastructure, with Terraform. Part 2: Install and configure Kubernetes, with Ansible.
We recently moved MicroBadger from Docker Cloud to a Kubernetes cluster on AWS. It's early days but this post is a write up of what we've learnt so far and some mistakes made along the way! First some background on MicroBadger, our tool for managing container metadata.
Recently we had the desire to cluster Consul (Hashicorps K/V store) without calling out to Atlas. We deploy many clusters per day as we are constantly testing and we want Consul to simply bring itself up without having to reach out over the internet. So we added a few changes to our Consul setup, so here...
