Kubernetes 1.7 is now available in Ubuntu

Canonical has announced official support for Kubernetes 1.7 in Ubuntu. Ubuntu is the first operating system that provides enterprise support for Kubernetes 1.7 and it makes use of Ubuntu kernel optimizations to provide best experience on cloud systems.

Kubernetes is an open-source platform for automated deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts, providing container-centric infrastructure. Kubernetes 1.7 features improved security, support for state-ful applications, and extensibility. With Canonical support for Kubernetes, enterprises can easily install and configure Kubernetes.

This is a Canonical distribution of pure-upstream Kubernetes, designed for ease of deployment and operations on public clouds and on-premise on bare metal, VMware, or OpenStack. The Canonical distribution osf Kubernetes is also easy to spin up on developer laptops using LXD containers for component isolation and distributed system simulation.

The Canonical installer makes upgrades simple, enables you to grow the K8s cluster dynamically, and takes advantage of Ubuntu’s kernel optimisations on every cloud. The Ubuntu kernel is widely considered the best kernel for large-scale container deployments.
