Mirantis to Refactor OpenStack Fuel for Kubernetes

Jul 27, 2016

The company is collaborating with Google and Intel to use Kubernetes as an engine for Fuel

Mirantis is collaborating with Google and Intel to refactor the Fuel lifecycle management tool to use Kubernetes as its underlying orchestration engine. Fuel is a lifecycle management component for OpenStack.

Mirantis told me in an interview that they are using some of the work done by the CoreOS team on Stackanetes, which enables developers to deploy OpenStack on Kubernetes. “With the emergence of Docker as the standard container image format and Kubernetes as the standard for container orchestration, we are finally seeing continuity in how people approach operations of distributed applications,” said Mirantis founder and CMO, Boris Renski. “Combining Kubernetes and Fuel will open OpenStack up to a new delivery model that allows faster consumption of updates, helping customers get to outcomes faster.”

Mirantis is also planning to become an active contributor to the Kubernetes project to better support it. The company has also joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation as a Silver member to collaborate with stakeholders on developing cloud native applications and services.
