We are excited to welcome CentOS as an officially supported Linux distribution in Tutum! CentOS joins Ubuntu in our growing list of supported operating systems.
With this latest release and its support for CentOS, Tutum takes another step towards delivering a true hybrid and agnostic platform in which to run all your applications.
Hybrid and agnostic are two key design principles of Tutum. What does this mean for you? It means you can run any type of application (micro services, monolithic, multi-tier, ephemeral, persistent, etc.) on any infrastructure (virtualized, baremetal, public cloud, private cloud, on-prem, etc.).
Supporting CentOS is the first step in allowing even more flexibility by letting you choose any Operating System. We understand that even in the world of containers, people have preferences and/or requirements when it comes to the OS, and we’re listening.
We’ve been wanting to scratch our own itch with CentOS support; here at Tutum, the engineering team has been long time users (some back since it’s first release in 2004).
Stay tuned as we continue to add support for other Linux and non-Linux distributions (hint: begins with a “W” ends in “indows”).
Thank you to everyone who has made this possible!
