The Cloud Native Compute Foundation has released version 1 of the Cloud Native Landscape. The Cloud Native Landscape Project is intended as a map and overview for cloud native technologies. Within the Cloud Native Landscape, the most popular cloud native projects are categorized in main categories like Platforms, Runtime or Provisioning. With the release of the previous version, the Cloud Native Landscape already included the “SUSE Portus” project, SUSE’s open source authorization service and user interface for the next generation container registry.
The first major release version 1 of the Cloud Native Landscape now also includes the SUSE Container as a Service Platform in the category PaaS / Container Service. SUSE CaaS Platform is based on the popular container orchestration Kubernetes and is SUSE’s solution as the next-gen platform for container-based applications. As an enterprise grade solution for container management, it enables IT and DevOps to more easily deploy, manage and scale container-based applications and services. The current version 2 of the SUSE CaaS Platform offers new features like role based access control (RBAC), multi-master deployments and a newer Kubernetes version. The inclusion of the SUSE CaaS Platform in the Cloud Native Landscape underlines SUSE’s successful vision for an open source software based software defined datacenter (SDDC).
