Since we announced Project Longhorn last year, there has been a great deal of interest in running Longhorn storage on a Kubernetes cluster. Today, I am very excited to announce the availability of Project Longhorn v0.2, which is a persistent storage implementation for any Kubernetes cluster. Once deployed on a Kubernetes cluster, Longhorn automatically clusters all available local storage from all the nodes in the cluster to form replicated and distributed block storage.

Recently, I moved to New York City. As a new resident, I decided to take part in the NYC DeveloperWeek hackathon, where our team won the NetApp challenge.

One of the things that often surprises administrators when they first begin working with Docker containers is the fact that containers natively use non-persistent storage.

Although a container’s own native storage is non-persistent, a container can be connected to storage that is external to the container.

In this release, we’ve built greater control for our users over their storage and secrets. Validating EBS Support We first implemented support for EBS before Rancher itself was even generally available, but in v1.

We’ve just returned from DockerCon 2017, which was a fantastic experience. I thought I’d share some of my thoughts and impressions of the event, including my perspective on some of the key announcements, while they are still fresh in my mind. New open source projects Container adoption for production environments is very real. The keynotes on both days included some exciting announcements that should further accelerate adoption in the enterprise as well as foster innovation in the open source community.
