OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
With the Kubernetes 1.8 release later today, it's time once again for an overview and update from Red Hat’s Clayton Coleman and Derek Carr on the many new features and functions that are included in this release and to find out what the impact will be on your organization's OpenShift and Kubernetes deployments. Clayton and Derek are both core contributors to Kubernetes and OpenShift, which is Red Hat’s enterprise-grade container platform based on Kubernetes.
The 1.8 release of Kubernetes focused in on stability -- an extremely important area for the project. Kubernetes continues its speedy evolution with version 1.8. This release promotes the Roles Based Access Control (RBAC) to general availability (GA), and includes a stable release of the lightweight container runtime for Kubernetes, CRI-O. You'll also find improvements to the Kubernetes workloads APIs, storage API, and autoscaling.
All of this and more are covered in this briefing and we'll be hosting a number of additional briefings on other key aspects of Kubernetes 1.8 in the coming months.
