Rancher is expanding the scope of its Longhorn Project by extending the distributed storage platform to support all available Kubernetes clusters, as the open source software firm continues to bet on Kubernetes continued massive-scale adoption. Rancher began Project Longhorn after Rancher began to offer persistent storage for its open source container management platform over a year ago.
A CloudBees effort to make it easier to deploy the Jenkins continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform is taking shape, thanks to Kubernetes container orchestration software and support for the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey says containers will make it substantially easier to set up the open source CI/CD platform.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) today moved a step closer to making persistent external storage more easily accessible to a Kubernetes cluster by formally adding beta support for the Container Storage Interface (CSI) and persistent local volumes. The latest version of Kubernetes, version 1.10, also adds an external client-go credential provider (alpha) as well as support for CoreDNS at install time in beta.
Devops culture is quickly gaining ground with companies all over the world and the demand for top notch devops talent is as high as it has ever been.
