Container schedulers like Kubernetes, Swarm, Mesos, Rancher and others have become a very hot topic in cloud infrastructure discussions.

This white paper also discusses how Calsoft can resolve the technical challenges of integrating storage in the cloud with various approaches, backed by understanding of both cloud requirements and the capabilities of large class of enterprise storage products.


With such high potential benefits, it’s no surprise that some in the OpenStack community want to use these platforms to also operate OpenStack. In my opinion, this confusing fusion of the technologies is inevitable because of the rapidly expanding footprint of container schedulers.
