Kubo is a new open source project started by engineers from Pivotal, Google Cloud, and VMware. We brought the release engineering, deployment, and lifecycle management qualities of BOSH to Kubernetes (K8s) clusters.
Kubernetes, Automated with Day 2 in Mind
With Kubo, lifecycle management for K8s is completely automated. Deployment, repairs, and upgrades are easy.
Use Familiar Tools for K8s Deployments
With Kubo, operators use BOSH to manage the infrastructure that underpins the containers running in K8s. This experience is the same as any other BOSH-deployed system.
Kubo is Multi-Cloud
Run Kubo in the public cloud or in your data center.
Kubo gives you the power of K8s, the popular container orchestrator. Use Kubo for your current and planned K8s investments.
Powered by BOSH
BOSH is an open source tool chain for release engineering, deployment, and lifecycle management of large scale distributed services. It’s been the cornerstone of Cloud Foundry since 2011, and now we’ve enabled BOSH to create and manage Kubernetes clusters.
High Availability is Built-in
BOSH provides HA for K8s masters and etcd within the K8s clusters.
Suitable for Common Enterprise Apps
Use Kubo for existing production apps written in specific languages, or when engineers need deep access to platform primitives.
Shared Tooling with Cloud Foundry
Realize operational efficiencies with joint Cloud Foundry and Kubo deployments, since both systems use BOSH. Operators can manage the infrastructure underneath cloud-native apps and containers the same way.
Contributors Wanted! We’re excited about Kubo, and will continue to improve the project in conjunction with the broader Kubernetes community and the Cloud Foundry community. Join us!
