CoreOS Eases Adoption of Kubernetes in the Enterprise by Bringing Tectonic to Additional Platforms and Extending Quay as an Application Registry for Kubernetes

SAN FRANCISCO, March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — To bring cloud native container infrastructure to all companies, CoreOS today extends CoreOS Tectonic, the enterprise Kubernetes solution, from AWS and bare metal to more environments, including preview availability for Microsoft Azure and OpenStack. CoreOS has also extended its container image registry, Quay, so that it can manage and store complete Kubernetes applications, which are composed of images along with configuration files. Quay now delivers a first-of-its-kind Kubernetes Application Registry that with this release is also integrated with Kubernetes Helm so that deployment of an application can be completely automated.

The demand for cloud native containerized infrastructure is on the rise for companies all around the world. Businesses like BMW, CDK Global, Concur and Ticketmaster are among the enterprises using CoreOS Tectonic for Kubernetes.

„We are seeing many companies embracing digital transformation, with part of that effort made possible by embracing a modern cloud native infrastructure that includes the use of containers and container orchestration. CoreOS has consistently promoted this transformation, and the announcements the company has made extends their solution across more of the environments where customers are likely to deploy their cloud native applications,” said Al Gillen, Group Vice President, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. „Embracing products such as these solutions from CoreOS will help enterprises take the next steps needed to take full advantage of cloud native deployments.”

CoreOS Tectonic Preview Support for Installer Across New Environments

With this release, the Tectonic Installer has been extended so that it can be customized and provide a repeatable, automated install experience. This new capability allows it to be extended to new environments more easily and expands its support for AWS and bare metal installs with preview support for Microsoft Azure and OpenStack. The installer will be released in open source so that the Kubernetes community can adopt and enhance this tool.

With broad adoption of Kubernetes as the platform of choice to orchestrate and manage containerized applications, making Tectonic available in more environments has become a critical requirement and is fueling further adoption. Tectonic delivers a fully supported Kubernetes platform along with the key enterprise capabilities that make it easier to manage and upgrade so that organizations can move their apps into production more confidently.

With the extended Tectonic Installer, users get:

This Tectonic release also delivers Kubernetes version 1.5.5, which includes:

Use and Learn Kubernetes with Tectonic Hands-on Tutorials

Tectonic and the new installation experience is available now at no cost for use up to 10 nodes. A new set of hands-on tutorials have also been made available that provide general education on Tectonic and Kubernetes.

CoreOS Quay: The place to store containers and applications for Kubernetes

In Kubernetes, an application may comprise numerous container images and the configuration files that are required to make it run in production. CoreOS Quay now enables users to natively store and manage these complete applications, making it the first Kubernetes Application Registry. What was previously an unspecified and error prone process is made familiar to existing registry users. Automation can now be applied to applications using Quay, making it easier to keep production environments of all sizes configured consistently.

To accomplish this, CoreOS has extended Helm, the Kubernetes package manager, such that it has the capability to push, pull and search for Charts from an App Registry. By leveraging a new registry plugin, Helm can now interact directly with Quay to pull an application definition and then use this to retrieve the necessary images and apply the configurations to ensure the application is successfully deployed. All of this is done through a community-driven API specification, called App Registry, that enables the Kubernetes ecosystem to develop more sophisticated tools and more reliable deployment pipelines.

„It is wonderful to see the CoreOS team integrate Quay and Helm so that customers can automate application deploy on Kubernetes,” said Gabriel Monroy, CTO of Deis. „CoreOS continues to provide products that help companies automate their infrastructure. Quay Kubernetes Application Registry is another step toward making automated infrastructure a reality.”

„We want everyone to be successful with cloud native technologies. To do this we continue to lead new developments in upstream open source communities and help create shared community specifications,” said Brandon Philips, CTO of CoreOS. „And the Quay App Registry is an example of new innovations coming from our continued focus on the Kubernetes community. For customers seeking an enterprise solution we are also bringing Kubernetes to more companies across more environments with CoreOS Tectonic and Quay Enterprise.”

CoreOS is presenting Tectonic and Quay at KubeCon / CloudNativeCon Berlin, March 29-30.

EFSA to give advice on the intake of sugar added to food

EFSA will provide scientific advice on the daily intake of added sugar in food by early 2020. The Authority aims to establish a science-based cut-off value for daily exposure to added sugars from all sources which is not associated with adverse health effects. The work will be carried out following a request from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Added sugars from all sources comprise sucrose, fructose, glucose, starch hydrolysates such as glucose syrup, high-fructose syrup, and other sugar preparations consumed as such or added during food preparation and manufacturing.

The adverse health effects under consideration will include body weight, glucose intolerance and insulin sensitivity, type-2-diabetes, cardiovascular risk factors, as well as dental caries. In its assessment, EFSA will look at the general healthy population, including children, adolescents, adults and the elderly.

The advice will guide Member States when establishing recommendations for the consumption of added sugars and in planning food-based dietary guidelines.

Sweden is coordinating the request to EFSA on behalf of the five Nordic countries. Annica Sohlström, the Director General of the Swedish National Food Agency, said: “We welcome EFSA’s acceptance of the mandate which reflects the need to scientifically evaluate the links between added sugar and health at a European level.”

What is going to happen next?

EFSA will establish an ad-hoc working group with expertise in dietary exposure, epidemiology, human nutrition, diet-related chronic diseases and dentistry. The five Nordic countries that initiated this mandate will be invited to the working group as observers.

EFSA will use its established methodology to develop a protocol on how to carry out the assessment. Known as Prometheus – PROmoting METHods for Evidence Use in Scientific assessments – the method shows how EFSA selects evidence, how this evidence contributes to the risk assessment and how EFSA reports on the entire process and it results.

In line with its commitment to openness and transparency, EFSA will engage with stakeholders throughout the assessment process. It will hold two public consultations, inviting feedback on the draft protocol in the first half of 2018 and on the draft opinion in late 2019, which will also involve a face-to-face meeting with stakeholders.

Background

In 2010, EFSA published its Scientific Opinion on Dietary Reference Values for carbohydrates and dietary fibre, which also included sugar. At this time, the available evidence was insufficient to set an upper limit for the daily intake of total or added sugars. New scientific evidence has come to light since then. There has also been growing public interest in the impact of the consumption of sugar-containing foods and beverages on human health.

National Center for Learning Disabilities Celebrates 40 Years of Innovation

NEW YORK, March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the midst of ongoing national conversations around educational, civil, and human rights, the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) leads as a critical voice in protecting the rights of children, adolescents, and adults. Earlier this month, nearly 500 people gathered at New York City's Cipriani 42nd Street to celebrate 40 years of progress by NCLD, which serves to improve the lives of the 1 in 5 people with learning and attention issues in the U.S. The guest list illustrated the diversity of people who have been impacted by NCLD's work, as a parent, educator, employer, or as someone with a personal connection to learning and attention issues. 

On its 40th Anniversary, NCLD honored designer Dao-Yi Chow, co-founder of the fashion line Public School, and Bob Miller, Chairman and CEO of Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the U.S. Introduced by his friend, Alex Soros, Dao-Yi Chow told the audience, "The important work of the NCLD is to help remind us that we are all disabled in one way or another. Our children's issues are our issues, and so we must do whatever we can to create a society that best prepares and empowers our children and young adults to be independent and prepared for a successful life in school, work and beyond." Bob Miller, as an employer of over 276,000 people, echoed that sentiment, in saying, "The work that [NCLD does] not only improves lives today, but builds a solid foundation for success for many years to come."

During the event, attendees heard from Ampy Moreno and her son Donovan. Moreno's dyslexia and attention issues were not identified until she was almost finished with high school. Now, poised to open her own hair salon, Moreno has been a strong advocate for her son. "I know that my son's journey will be easier than mine," said Moreno. "Because of Understood and NCLD, parents like mine don't have to be scared, and confused, and ashamed." Understood.org, which NCLD manages and operates, is an innovative digital resource for parents of children with learning and attention issues. Since launching in October 2014, Understood.org has supported over 27 million visitors.

The event also honored two extraordinary high school seniors with the Anne Ford and Allegra Ford Thomas Scholarships. This year's recipients were Marcos Allen and Charlotte Leche, respectively. Both students have worked hard to overcome the challenges of their learning and attention issues and are looking forward to continuing their education. As each one shared an arduous, inspiring journey, the pride and acknowledgement throughout the audience was profound.

"At NCLD, we are working to create a society in which every individual possesses the academic, social and emotional skills needed to succeed in school, at work and in life," said Mimi Corcoran, President and CEO of NCLD. "We know that when they succeed…we all succeed." NCLD strives to inform policy and advocate for equal opportunity; engage parents with personalized support through Understood.org; build the capacity of educators to support all learners; empower young adults as advocates; and strengthen the field through research and collaboration.

Looking to the year ahead, NCLD will be working on an exciting new initiative to connect educators with much needed instructional resources and training opportunities to ensure success for all learners, modeled on the successful Understood.org platform. There will be significant advocacy work to ensure that individuals with learning and attention issues are represented in national and state discussions that transcend silos of general and special education. While headquartered in New York City, NCLD's Washington D.C. office is working with Congressional offices, government agencies, networks and coalitions to influence decision-makers and shape policies that advance opportunities for students with disabilities.

"All of you here tonight hold the keys to NCLD achieving its ambitious goals. It is your willingness to stand for the 1 in 5; to reach out to others; to stay involved, to make a difference, that will enable NCLD to lead the way," Corcoran told the audience. "Together, we can make the world fully accessible and inclusive of the 1 in 5 - one where they thrive." Together, the attendees and sponsors contributed a record $3 million at this 40th Anniversary benefit for NCLD.

About the National Center for Learning Disabilities www.ncld.org
The mission of NCLD is to improve the lives of the 1 in 5 children and adults nationwide with learning and attention issues—by empowering parents and young adults, transforming schools and advocating for equal rights and opportunities.
