1.9 Package Example Updates: Thank You!
For more than five years, DC/OS has enabled some of the largest, most sophisticated enterprises in the world to achieve unparalleled levels of efficiency, reliability, and scalability from their IT infrastructure. But now it is time to pass the torch to a new generation of technology: the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP). Why? Kubernetes has now achieved a level of capability that only DC/OS could formerly provide and is now evolving and improving far faster (as is true of its supporting ecosystem). That’s why we have chosen to sunset DC/OS, with an end-of-life date of October 31, 2021. With DKP, our customers get the same benefits provided by DC/OS and more, as well as access to the most impressive pace of innovation the technology world has ever seen. This was not an easy decision to make, but we are dedicated to enabling our customers to accelerate their digital transformations, so they can increase the velocity and responsiveness of their organizations to an ever-more challenging future. And the best way to do that right now is with DKP.
Back in April the OSS team put a call out to the DC/OS community for help updating our package examples for the newly released DC/OS 1.9. The response was tremendous. Every example was quickly adopted by community members and the updates were promptly completed.
We also had many kind words from contributors who were eager for projects that would help them get familiar with DC/OS, including Mark Porter who worked on updating the mongodb-replicaset example and said:
"[T]his is my first exposure to DCOS (coming from a Cloud Foundry background) and have been wanting to explore for a while so I think this exercise is great! The ‘out of the box' experience (i'm using vagrant to bootstrap a local environment) was great and I was up and running in no time."
Contributions came from all over the world. To get an idea of how diverse this group is geographically, our Community Manager, Judith Malnick has put together a map detailing where our contributors are from:
