EasyStack EKS eyes enhancing DevOps, security and interoperability

EasyStack launches EasyStack Kubernetes Service (EKS)

EasyStack, an open source cloud computing solutions provider in China, premiered EasyStack Kubernetes Service (EKS) at the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 in Austin, Texas, with capabilities like orchestration, scheduling, security, operations and maintenance holding the spotlight.

Kubernetes, a platform that allows containers to be managed over multiple-cloud architectures, is immensely popular in the open source community as apparent at this year’s conference. Since its inception, attendees at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon have swelled from 400 to over 4,000, giving a sense of the growth seen in the ecosystem over the past couple years. According to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), 61% of organizations are evaluating and 83% are using Kubernetes in production.

EasyStack originally debuted its Kubernetes based enterprise container clustering solution ESContainer in May 2017, becoming an open source company to provide both OpenStack and Kubernetes (K8S) products. The business is competitive globally in both OpenStack and Kubernetes core code contributions.

Features under the renamed ESContainer, EKS, along with the EasyStack portfolio, focus on enabling the next generation of application delivery and operation. The newest version enables enterprises to launch Kubernetes clusters both in private clouds and public clouds, as well as co-work with virtual machines and bare metal in cloud environments. Virtual orchestration also allows users to deploy applications using a basic drag and drop method.

Additionally, EKS aims to boost the delivery pipeline of DevOps teams, a term used to refer to the integration of software developers and operations staff. As the most widely used container cluster management tool, Kubernetes is changing the DevOps space. According to EasyStack, EKS fastens the delivery of applications by DevOps teams using a series of tool chain.

Another feature EKS focuses on is security. While their lightweight, isolated nature enables developers to launch multiple containers on a single host operating system, it also makes it easier for hackers to gain access to the whole system if one container is corrupted. EKS scans and identifies glitches in base code of a user’s application, contrasting it with an updated library with a list of glitches and fixes.

Finally, EKS has passed the Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program, which was launched to stabilize Kubernetes. By becoming Kubernetes certified, users can run workloads on EKS without modifying applications, enabling Kubernetes services and interoperable support across vendor platforms.
