RackN has been advancing a “Joint OpenStack Kubernetes Environment” concept in which Kubernetes Helm is used to provision all the OpenStack services. We believe Kubernetes brings significant operational advantages to OpenStack operators in additional to promoting robust Kubernetes.
A Simple and Revolutionary Approach
If you are an OpenStack operator facing a rip-and-replace upgrade then this approach will save you a lot of effort down the road. If you are a new operator then add this to your must review list.
While this work is still early, we believe that this integration is the best path for sustainable OpenStack deployments. We have been collaborating with the OpenStack Helm teams to ensure that the work is easily consumable in the open community.
RackN is looking for companies being early adopters with an interest in helping accelerate OpenStack on Kubernetes to production.
