Today we are delighted to announce General Availability of CloudStack Container Service (CCS): software that gives Cloud Service Providers a Container as a Service (CaaS) offering within their existing IaaS environments.. The software is immediately available for trial or commercial license.
After the first release of the CloudStack Container Service in May, we have had the software in private preview with a small number of customers. We have worked with those customers, gathering feedback to ensure that CloudStack Container Service meets to needs of organisations wishing to deliver solid CaaS services.
CloudStack Container Service is easy to deploy and easily bolts on to your existing VM based IaaS offerings. It gives end-users the ability to build container clusters and then manage them using Kubernetes. Users can be deploying containerised applications within minutes.
It allows this whilst overcoming the biggest challenge for existing IaaS providers: how do they quickly offer their users a robust CaaS offering and, at the same time, do so with a seamless user experience and no disruption of their existing IaaS business processes and commercial models.
CloudStack Container Service is a plug-in for Apache Cloudstack
The CloudStack Container Service is open source. Download it on Github: https://github.com/shapeblue/ccs
