At the recent OpenStack summit in Austin, Texas, infrastructure company CoreOS demonstrated Stackanetes, a new initiative it dreamed up that is designed to make it easier for organizations to utilize applications sitting on top of Kubernetes.
Kubernetes is, of course, the open source container management initiative that was borne out of the internal systems that Google uses to manage its own infrastructure.
Stackanetes came from CoreOS’s focus on delivering what it calls GIFEE (Google’s Infrastructure for Everyone). The idea is that currently only massive organizations like Google have the ability to run these highly efficient platforms. CoreOS wants to democratize that ability.
