SUSE in the present day introduced that it has contributed EiriniX, a framework for constructing extensions for Eirini, a know-how that brings help for Kubernetes-based container orchestration to the Cloud Foundry platform-as-a-service undertaking.
About a 12 months in the past, SUSE additionally contributed the KubeCF undertaking to the muse, which itself permits the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime — the core of Cloud Foundry — to run on high of Kubernetes.
“At SUSE we’re growing upstream first as a lot as attainable,” mentioned Thomas Di Giacomo, president of Engineering and Innovation at SUSE. “So, after experiencing the worth of contributing KubeCF to the Foundation earlier this 12 months, we determined it will be useful to each the Cloud Foundry group and the EiriniX group to do it once more. We have seen an uptick in contributions to and utilization of KubeCF because it grew to become a Foundation undertaking, indicating that extra organizations are investing developer time into the upstream. Contributing EiriniX to the Foundation is a surefire solution to get the broader group concerned.”
SUSE first demonstrated EiriniX a 12 months in the past. The software implements options like the power to SSH right into a container and debug it, for instance, or to make use of various logging options for KubeCF.
“There is critical worth in contributing this undertaking to the Foundation, because it ensures that different undertaking groups in search of an identical resolution to creating Extensions round Eirini won’t reinvent the wheel,” mentioned Chip Childers, government director, Cloud Foundry Foundation. “Now that EiriniX exists inside the Foundation, builders can take full benefit of its library of add-ons to Eirini and modify core options of Cloud Foundry. I’m excited to see all the use circumstances for this undertaking that haven’t but been invented.”
