Today, the OpenStack foundation made it even easier for you deploy and manage clusters of Docker containers on OpenStack clouds by including Kubernetes in its Community App Catalog. At a keynote today at the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver, Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation, and Craig Peters, Mirantis product line manager, demonstrated the Community App Catalog workflow by launching a Kubernetes cluster in a matter of seconds by leveraging the compute, storage, networking and identity systems already present in an OpenStack cloud.
The entries in the catalog include not just the ability to start a Kubernetes cluster, but also a range of applications deployed in Docker containers managed by Kubernetes. These applications include:
Apache web server
Nginx web server
Crate - The Distributed Database for Docker
GlassFish - Java EE 7 Application Server
Tomcat - An open-source web server and servlet container
InfluxDB - An open-source, distributed, time series database
Grafana - Metrics dashboard for InfluxDB
Jenkins - An extensible open source continuous integration server
Redis - Key-value cache and store
MongoDB NoSQL database
Zend Server - The Complete PHP Application Platform
The Kubernetes open source project has continued to see fantastic community adoption and increasing momentum, with over 11,000 commits and 7,648 stars on GitHub. With supporters ranging from Red Hat and Intel to CoreOS and Box.net, it has come to represent a range of customer interests ranging from enterprise IT to cutting edge startups. We encourage you to give it a try, give us your feedback, and get involved in our growing community.
