Support for FCO in Cloudify
This article was originally published on the DICE blog. Matej and Tadej Borovšak work at XLAB. The article is being re-published with the consent of the authors. Cloudify is an important component of the DICE deployment tool. It enables that the users can describe their applications in a human-readable text format YAML, using a TOSCA
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
Cloudify 3.4 Has Dropped – Orchestrate All Clouds!
Team Cloudify is very excited to announce the Cloudify 3.4 GA release! This was definitely the most packed release of Cloudify ever and brings with it some major improvements, all of which culminates in support for hybrid environments, with any stack, and on any workload, and covering more than 90% of infrastructures and workloads
Scaling Kubernetes Microservices on OpenStack With TOSCA Orchestration Pt I of II
In a previous post, I converted a Fabric-based plugin implementation to an Openstack agent-based implementation. In this episode, I finally reached one of the key goals of this long running effort; to automate scaling on Kubernetes using Cloudify native means. The path to this goal leads through some of the more exotic parts of
Orchestrating Kubernetes On OpenStack
In my previous post, I discussed enhancing the original, basic Kubernetes plugin into a version that was reasonably functional. That version was designed to use Fabric and operate on preexisting machines (virtual or “bare metal”). This post discusses the changes needed to create the same hybrid deployment as before, but hosted on OpenStack. Try
Using Cloudify to Extend Murano Past OpenStack to Multiple Clouds
It’s great to see Murano is gaining popularity and usage since its release, along with additional projects added in the last OpenStack releases – from Sahara to Marconi, I find the addition and the diversity of projects now available in this growing ecosystem extremely impressive. So for those who are unfamiliar, OpenStack Murano introduced
Cloudify Meets Kubernetes – Enhancing The Integration
Integrating Cloudify with Kubernetes is compelling for those with hybrid environments (containers, virtualization, cloud, bare metal, even hardware), who would like to leverage Kubernetes’ container management instead of Cloudify’s, and/or leverage Cloudify’s event driven workflows to perform autoscaling or other automatic processes. In my last post, I described an initial integration with Kubernetes, which
Domo Arigato, OpenStack Tokyo!
It’s on, folks! Tokyo is not just around the corner, it’s here – and OpenStack peddlers, developers, fanboys, newbies will all be out there to hear about how everyone is using OpenStack to improve the open cloud initiative and push this amazing project forward. Our own Cloudify team will also be making their way
