Eirini project brings Kubernetes to Cloud Foundry
Eirini, an open source project that integrates the Cloud Foundry cloud application platform with the Kubernetes container management platform, is now available in a “tech preview” from IBM.
An incubation project within Cloud Foundry Foundation, Eirini enables pluggable scheduling for the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime. With Eirini, Cloud Foundry users can choose between Diego and Kubernetes to orchestrate application container instances. Choose Kubernetes, and Cloud Foundry applications are deployed to a Kubernetes back-end using OCI images and Kubernetes Deployments. Diego has served as the default scheduler for the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime. The goal behind Eirini is to ensure that users have the same experience regardless of which scheduler is used.
