Stackanetes puts OpenStack in containers as a way to make OpenStack easier to use, according to Alex Polvi, CoreOS CEO, who spoke with SDxCentral in early April. He said OpenStack can be “a bit fragile,” and containers can be useful to make an organization’s infrastructure behave like that of a Web-scale cloud provider.
In fact, Kubernetes originated with Google. According to a YouTube video posted today from CoreOS, Google deploys every piece of its infrastructure through containers. “We help companies bring Google’s infrastructure for everyone else built around Kubernetes,” says Polvi in the video.
Stackanetes is being open sourced: It includes upstream Kubernetes, and CoreOS will work with the OpenStack community to integrate it into upstream OpenStack.
Today a prototype of Stackanetes is available on CoreOS’s Tectonic, its commercial product for managing containers. Polvi is demonstrating it at the OpenStack Summit in Austin, following a collaboration with Intel.
