SUSE Containers as a service platform – new product plans announced at SUSECON 2016

In the interview with Sam Vargese from itwire, Federica Teodori, project manager for container and orchestration, Andreas Jaeger, senior product manager, and Simona Arsene, product manager at SUSE, announced plans and first details for the “Containers as a service platform”. SUSE hopes to release a public beta in April 2018, before the first customer version comes out in July next year.

- Kubernetes, which handles the management or orchestration of the containers
- Docker plus the orchestration framework Salt for setting up all the components.
