Mirantis Embracing Kubernetes and Containers for OpenStack Cloud

The world of containers and OpenStack clouds are increasingly coming together, as organizations of all sizes look to become more agile. While the idea of running containers inside of OpenStack is one option, a powerful idea that is now taking shape is to run OpenStack itself as a set of containers, which is then managed by the Kubernetes container orchestration system.

Among the vendors that are working on enabling OpenStack to run as a set of containers is Miranits, which is currently developing a new version of its Fuel platform to make use of Kubernetes. To date, Fuel has heavily relied on Puppet configuration management technology to help enable many functions. Moving forward, Puppet will still be a part of future Fuel releases, though not quite in the same depth as before.

Cloud Storage and Backup Benefits

Protecting your company’s data is critical. Cloud storage with automated backup is scalable, flexible and provides peace of mind. Cobalt Iron’s enterprise-grade backup and recovery solution is known for its hands-free automation and reliability, at a lower cost. Cloud backup that just works.

The OpenStack platform already has a project called Kola, which is an effort to make container packages of OpenStack services. Renski noted that there isn’t a need for an additional OpenStack project, but rather his firm and others, will likely be making multiple sets of code contributions to Kubernetes to help enable OpenStack as a container.

In a video interview, Boris Renski, co-founder of Mirantis explains how he sees the move toward running OpenStack as a set of containers, with Kubernetes will evolve over the course of 2016.
