As you look to compose your own stack around Kubernetes, it is important that you have the flexibility to choose the right components and integrations that suit your business and technical needs. You may have different drivers for choices – some want best-in-class for specific use cases, some choose components because of features and technology differentiation, and others may want to manage risk and look at a single vendor for their entire stack.
Nirmata is designed to allow cloud architects and their teams to compose their own Kubernetes stacks. This includes choosing a Kubernetes distribution, as well as other major components like the Image Registry, container host OS, container engine, networking and storage drivers, security solutions, and load-balancers.
In this post, we describe a complete Oracle Kubernetes stack managed by Nirmata.
Oracle has a large number of open source software components, delivered by Oracle Linux and Virtualization business. One of our customers had a requirement for a full Oracle stack for their Kubernetes clusters and put that challenge to us. Within a matter of hours, we integrated all Oracle components – including their open source stack and other core applications – all managed through Nirmata. Here is the list:
- Oracle’s Image Registry
- Oracle Linux 7.5
- Oracle Docker Engine 17.06
- Oracle Kubernetes distribution
- Oracle Web logic server 12c
- Oracle MySQL DB
Here is the Video by Ritesh Patel, VP, Products at Nirmata, demonstrating the solution.
Nirmata is built to provide a very flexible and composable stack to customers with a rich set of API’s that make integration with other tools really simple and easy.
What does your stack for Kubernetes look like? Do you have integration requirements around Kubernetes that you would like to see? Do you have questions on best practices on how to build your own Kubernetes stack?
