This Week in News: Kubernetes Alone Does Not a Market Make

9 Feb 2018 12:00pm, by

This week on The New Stack Context podcast, we talk about the recent (and quickly finalized) CoreOS acquisition by Red Hat. TNS contributor Scott M. Fulton had the chance to talk with CoreOS CEO Alex Polvi and Red Hat’s vice president for OpenShift, Ashesh Badani. He got the lowdown on what “may” happen to products like Tectonic and Container Linux now that they’re part of Red Hat’s portfolio.  “May” is the keyword here. We discuss the future of these products, whether Red Hat’s main competition in the Kubernetes market is still Docker and whether a Kubernetes market even exists at all.

The New Stack also launched a free ebook this week, “Kubernetes Deployment & Security Patterns,” which helps ops teams evaluate Kubernetes based on their organizations’ needs and how they manage workloads. The size of your organization and the number of containers you deploy really determine the challenges you face with a Kubernetes deployment, for example. This episode dives into some of the data and shares what we learned.
