The New Cloud Foundry Container Runtime: Just the Facts

2 Nov 2017 1:26pm, by

The Cloud Foundry Container Runtime is the new name for Kubo, which is Kubernetes running on BOSH. In today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS founder Alex Williams caught up with Cloud Foundry Foundation Chief Technology Officer Chip Childers to learn more about Cloud Foundry’s plans for this new runtime, with Childers highlighting how BOSH is serving the needs of today’s developers.

Childers went on to note that the Cloud Foundry Container Runtime and application runtime will sit next to one another, allowing for shared identity between Kuberenetes and Cloud Foundry application runtimes.

“I think that what’s most important right now is thinking about the developers. What is it that the developer in the enterprise needs? That developer experience is the most important thing bar none in our minds. Everything else floats from that,” said Childers, adding that “the Cloud Foundry community looks at it as: Developer team, developer experience, and then down.”
