When the Kubernetes project began, there were no extension mechanisms. Over the last four-plus years, we have devoted significant effort to producing extension mechanisms, and they are now mature enough for us build systems […]

Re-Imagining Virtualization with Kubernetes and KubeVirt - Part II

KubeVirt – Traditional Virtualization with the New Kubernetes Previously, in Part I of this blog series, we introduced the idea that KubeVirt is about balance: Mature virtualization features and concepts, yet Kubernetes philosophy and semantics.

Controlling Namespace Configurations

In the Kubernetes namespace model, the high-level idea is that a development team is given access to a namespace. Within the confines of that sandbox, they have the freedom to perform any action they desire. There are, however, a set of namespaced objects whose ownership is not so immediately clear.

Kubernetes Federation V2 on OpenShift 3.11

With datacenters spread across the globe, users are increasingly looking at ways to spread their applications and services across multiple locales or clusters. This need is driven by multiple use cases: from providing high availability, spreading load across multiple clusters while being resilient to individual cluster failures; to avoiding provider lock-in by using hybrid cloud […]
