Why Do I Need * If I’m Using Kubernetes? Part I of II
I’m just returning from the Kubecon Austin event and I must admit that the vibe, and the amount of innovation, around Kubernetes reminded me of the good old OpenStack events. Now that Docker Swarm seems to be dropping behind, it definitely feels like Google and Kubernetes are killing it. During the event we announced our
Introducing the Cloudify Kubernetes Multi-Cloud Provider
In my previous blog post about the Kubernetes Plugin for Cloudify, I broke down the reasoning behind the need to orchestrate Kubernetes – the main reason being the need to orchestrate across diverse workloads. It’s no easy feat to get multiple Kubernetes clusters on different public and private clouds to talk with each other in
Overcoming the Five Hybrid Cloud Adoption Challenges
This article originally appeared in SDxCentral on August 25th. Let’s start with a couple of questions for the CIO reader. First, should your enterprises work with a single cloud provider? Most likely your answer will be “No!” And for good reason. Second, will hybrid (not necessarily cloud) be part of your data center’s future in
Deploying Your App Onto AWS and OpenStack With Hybrid Cloud Orchestration Using a Single Cloudify TOSCA Blueprint

Cloud-Native VNFs VoLTE Demo – vIMS & vEPC on VMware vCloud with Group Scale
Many existing network functions have only recently undergone the transition from being physical appliances to being delivered virtually, which was a revolution unto itself. That transition required mostly performance optimization to accommodate the additional I/O overhead of the hypervisor and some configuration changes to accommodate the fact that VMs can be more dynamic in nature.
Support for FCO in Cloudify

True hybrid cloud is achievable. Download the all-new Cloudify 3.4 today! Go Cloud Portability Defined
Deployment and Orchestration of a Kubernetes Cluster With Auto-Scaling and Auto-Healing in a Hybrid Environment Using Cloudify
At Openstack Israel 2016, I participated in a presentation where we compared a few cloud orchestrators, among them Kubernetes and Cloudify. In short, I presented Kubernetes as a container-focused orchestrator, while Cloudify I presented as a more general orchestrator. The division isn’t exact. Kubernetes has a lot of integration with infrastructure. And Cloudify has been
