Learning about CoreOS and Tectonic

January 6, 2016

With today’s post we are five interviews into the videos I took at Kubecon with three remaining.

Today’s interviewee is Rob Szumski, one of the early employees of CoreOS.  Rob explains CoreOS, Tectonic and where CoreOS is going from here.

Some of the ground Rob covers

  • CoreOS began as an operating system for large scale clusters and how Docker came around at just the right time and worked with CoreOS
  • CoreOS as the original micro OS
  • The components of Tectonic – How you should deploy your containers, on top of: kubernetes, flannel, coreOS, etc; it also comes with support and architectural help
  • Whats on tap for CoreOS and Tectonic – tools and more

Container management and landscape

July 17, 2015

Back at the end of April I gave an internal presentation laying out a high level overview of the container and container management space.   I pulled this together using public info.

Needless to say big things have happened since I created it,  most notably the announcement of the Open Container Project.  That being said it I feel it still offers a good general feel for the players and how they fit together.
