CoreOS, creator of the Docker alternative rkt and many other container-centric innovations, is delivering a “self-driving” update to Kubernetes for its container-based Linux distribution. This self-updating methodology comes with the new version of Tectonic, a mix of CoreOS’s Linux (now known as Container Linux) with Kubernetes.

CoreOS is also watching this development to see how a cluster of systems that provide internet infrastructure can receive constant updates—whether for fast-moving projects like Kubernetes or Docker or for components like TLS, which are more static.
