CoreOS Tec­tonic 1.7 comes with sup­port for Mi­crosoft Azure

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

CoreOS, the con­tainer man­age­ment ven­dor, has re­leased a new ver­sion of its en­ter­prise-ready Tec­tonic plat­form. The new re­lease brings Ku­ber­netes to Mi­crosoft’s Azure. De­buted as CoreOS Tec­tonic 1.7.1, the new plat­form is based on Ku­ber­netes v1.7. The latest Ku­ber­netes in­te­gra­tion ar­rived in May. But the new ver­sion has ex­panded that re­lease with sta­ble Mi­crosoft Azure sup­port. This makes Tec­tonic a good so­lu­tion for multi-cloud en­vi­ron­ments.

“Tec­tonic on Azure is an ex­cit­ing ad­vance­ment, en­abling cus­tomers to use CoreOS’ en­ter­prise-ready con­tainer man­age­ment plat­form to eas­ily man­age and scale work­loads, to build and man­age these ap­pli­ca­tions on Azure,” said Gabriel Mon­roy, lead prod­uct man­ager for con­tain­ers, Azure, Mi­crosoft. The new Azure sup­port comes as an ex­ten­sion to the pre­vi­ous Tec­tonic ver­sion’s com­pat­i­bil­ity with Ama­zon Web Ser­vices and bare metal servers. Also, since CoreOS fo­cuses ex­clu­sively on Linux con­tain­ers, there is no sup­port for Win­dows con­tain­ers on Azure in the latest re­lease.

In ad­di­tion to Azure, Tec­tonic 1.7.1 sup­ports pre-con­fig­ured mon­i­tor­ing alerts via Prometheus. There is also al­pha sup­port for Ku­ber­netes net­work poli­cies to help con­trol in­bound traffic and pro­vide bet­ter se­cu­rity. Be­sides, the open source so­lu­tion has fixes for com­mon is­sues like la­tency of cus­tomer ap­pli­ca­tions.

You can down­load the latest Tec­tonic ver­sion from the of­fi­cial CoreOS web­site. Users who are op­er­at­ing Tec­tonic 1.6.7-tec­tonic.2 with Op­er­a­tors can en­able the new re­lease us­ing one-click au­to­mated up­dates.
