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...

Making TOSCA Truly Portable

Over the past few months I’ve been involved in various forums and discussion on what the right approach should be for achieving a common orchestration modeling language. I felt that while there’s a growing consensus that TOSCA is currently best positioned to fit the bill, most notably in the NFV...

Scaling Kubernetes Microservices on OpenStack With TOSCA Orchestration Pt II of II

In my previous post, I described orchestrating a hybrid architecture that included Kubernetes, Kubernetes hosted microservices, and a cloud hosted database, all running on Openstack. That post described how everything was deployed, but left the implementation of post deployment dynamism to the imagination. This post finishes the story. Try the...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Cloudify Meets Kubernetes - Container Management & Orchestration on Bare Metal

Cloudify lives at the extreme end of the "unopinionated" spectrum of application orchestration tools. Kubernetes (http://www.kubernetes.io), on the other hand, is a container orchestration system that is very opinionated. For those committed to a container based deployment architecture, it's a great choice, especially for supporting microservices, a good reference on...
