Avi Miller
Senior Manager, Oracle Linux and Virtualization Product Management

Continuing Oracle's commitment to open source and the container ecosystem, Oracle joins the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, and we are pleased to announce Oracle Container Services for use with Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is the industry leading open source container orchestration and management platform rapidly emerging as the standard for containerized applications. Deploying Kubernetes can be complex, especially with regards to storage, security and networking. The release of Oracle Container Services for use with Kubernetes simplifies the configuration and setup of Kubernetes with support for backup and recovery. This solution has been developed as an extension to Oracle Linux and Oracle Container Runtime for Docker, to provide a comprehensive container and orchestration environment for the delivery of microservices and next generation application development.

Release Information

The current release of Oracle Container Services for use with Kubernetes is based on Kubernetes version 1.7.4 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 and these images are available from the Oracle Container Registry.

Oracle provides a setup and configuration script that takes advantage of the kubeadm cluster configuration utility. This script eases the setup on Oracle Linux including configuration of networking, firewall, proxies and the initial cluster deployment as well as providing additional support for backup and recovery.

Installation and Upgrade

Oracle Linux Container Services for use with Kubernetes is free to download from the Oracle Linux Yum Server. You use yum install kubeadm to install the kubeadm package and required dependency. Then run kubeadm-setup.sh up to set up your environment.

Customers are encouraged to use the latest updates for Oracle Linux Container Services for use with Kubernetes that are released on the Oracle Linux Yum Server and on Oracle's Unbreakable Linux Network. You can use the standard yum update> command to perform upgrade.
