Containers at Scale with Kubernetes on OpenStack

Keith Tenzer

Overview

Containers are a burning hot topic right now. Several open source technologies have come together to allow containers to be operated at scale and in the enterprise. In this article I will talk about these technologies and explain how to build container infrastructure at scale with OpenStack. There are three main components that come together to create container-based infrastructure: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host (RHEL Atomic), Docker and Google’s Kubernetes. RHEL Atomic provides an optimized operating system for running containers. Docker delivers container portability and a packaging standard. Kubernetes adds orchestration and management of Docker containers across a massively scalable cluster of RHEL Atomic hosts.
