Yesterday, RackN CEO, Rob Hirschfeld, described the remarkable progress in OpenStack on Kubernetes using Helm (article link). Until now, RackN had not been willing to officially support OpenStack deployments; however, we now believe that this approach is a game changer for OpenStack operators even if they are not actively looking at Kubernetes.
We are looking for companies that want to join in this work and fast-track it into production. If this is interesting, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why should you sponsor? Current OpenStack operators facing “fork-lift upgrades” should want to find a path like this one that ensures future upgrades are baked into the plan. This approach provide a fast track to a general purpose, enterprise grade, upgradable Kubernetes infrastructure.
