Don't Balkanize My Installer, Yo!
Last week, RackN announced our enterprise support for Kubernetes using nothing but upstream Ansible from the project itself. This effort represents years of effort by the RackN founders to keep platforms interoperable via open and shareable operations automation.
That’s why our Digital Rebar approach targets underlay challenges and leverages existing automation tools instead of investing yet another install path.
This week, we added Install Wizard templates to the DC/OS install automation we build in collaboration with Mesosphere last year. That makes it even easier to run DC/OS on physical infrastructure. Like our Kubernetes work, the Digital Rebar automation uses the same community dcos_install.sh that’s used in the community documentation. The difference is that we’re also driving all the underlay prep and configuration automatically.
If this approach appeals to you, contact RackN and join in the open Day 2 revolution.
