Oracle is pleased to announce the first supported release of Oracle Container Services for use with Kubernetes®.
Oracle Container Services 1.1.9 for use with Kubernetes is based on Kubernetes version 1.9.1, as released upstream. It is available for Oracle Linux 7 and is designed to integrate with the Oracle Container Runtime for Docker provided and supported by Oracle. Oracle Container Services for use with Kubernetes runs in a series of Docker containers. These images are available from the Oracle Container Registry.
Features in this release of Oracle Container Services for use with Kubernetes include upstream Kubernetes 1.9 software packaged for Oracle Linux, setup and configuration utilities, the Kubernetes Dashboard software, cluster backup and restore tools and integration testing for use with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
