CoreOS, Intel and Mirantis have released a technical preview of Stackanetes, a new tool which makes it possible to deploy and manage OpenStack cloud computing deployments with the Kubernetes container management platform. “Kubernetes’ features, flexibility and scalability make Stackanetes a robust solution for managing OpenStack,” blogged Quentin Machu, software engineer at CoreOS. “The combined effort between CoreOS, Intel and Mirantis demonstrates that Kubernetes is a mature solution for improving the life-cycle-management, monitoring, and scaling of complex production platforms like OpenStack.”
The open source tool is available in the latest version of OpenStack, codenamed Newton. Key features include high scalability, control-plane self-healing and virtual machine live migration.
