CoreOS Image Now Available on DigitalOcean
- CoreOS on DigitalOcean Provides Simplest Way to Start Using Containers
- etcd Clustering Technology Allows Developers to Spin Up Clusters of Servers
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today DigitalOcean announces the availability of CoreOS, a Linux OS for massive-server deployments, on the DigitalOcean platform. Users spinning up servers can deploy the CoreOS image to achieve a warehouse scale compute level.
“The easiest way to get started using containers, distributed systems and the next generation of infrastructure is now available to millions of developers on DigitalOcean”
The availability of CoreOS on DigitalOcean provides the easiest and fastest way for web and mobile developers interested in working with Docker to deploy applications and experiment with containers. “There is a lot of community excitement for CoreOS,” said Mitch Wainer, Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer at DigitalOcean. “We’re very pleased to announce that developers can begin using CoreOS immediately, ensuring the resiliency of their architecture as they continue to scale at massive levels. We hope developers using our infrastructure are as excited as we are about the possibilities now available through CoreOS on our platform.”
Through CoreOS’s etcd technology, users can also deploy a cluster of servers configured to work with one another, ensuring their app or website remains live at all times. This feature greatly reduces the impact of a possible server failure, supporting high-traffic applications.
Google, Facebook and Twitter utilize similar strategies and influences to allow for growth and resilient systems. “The easiest way to get started using containers, distributed systems and the next generation of infrastructure is now available to millions of developers on DigitalOcean,” said Alex Polvi, CEO of CoreOS. “Let the developer community go wild.”
