CloudByte, sponsor of the OpenEBS project, is now MayaData! Our vision is that data management for containers and cloud lock-in can be solved thanks to open source projects like Kubernetes
and OpenEBS and cloud based software that delivers analytics, ChatOps, and automation. MayaData sponsors the OpenEBS project, contributes to Kubernetes, and this week at KubeCon is
releasing a free version of MayaOnline for cross-cloud visibility, control, and automation of the data layer.
MayaOnline includes Prometheus and Grafana so that you can see details of your storage usage, for example examining which workloads are most resource intensive. MayaOnline also includes
ChatOps - so if you want to integrate Kubernetes into your Slack - with other chat clients to be supported soon - please take a look. The first commands include basic controls and requests
for information. Why not have a chat with your clusters? And - MayaOnline includes cMotion - the ability to move live stateful workloads from cloud to cloud. We are
doing a controlled release as if all the tens of thousands of OpenEBS users logged on at once that could be an issue. We DO need and welcome your feedback. And we are confident
that the free monitoring, chatops control, and easy replication and data mobility features will help you out. So please register and we’ll get you access as soon as feasible.
The release of OpenEBS v0.5 is one of the most significant releases to date; our focus remains on improving
ease of use and capabilities for the growing community. And thank you community - there are 50+ new contributors added to the project just since OpenEBS 0.4. Some noteworthy additions
include: - Extensions to the Kubernetes storage subsystem allowing storage policies engine that allow each DevOps team to have their control over storage - Ability to monitor storage
volume and get granular metrics per OpenEBS volumes using Prometheus and Grafana. - Extensions contributed to the Kubernetes dashboard to navigate storage components like Pods to PVCs
to PVs to Storage Classes and so forth And we are also very excited about the technology preview of cStor which we will release in the KubeCon December 6th. Please
contact us if you would like to take a look. We have refactored the storage engine, using C instead of Go, and incorporating aspects of OpenZFS.
Contribute to OpenEBS Hackfest!
After receiving an over-whelming response from our contributors from Hacktoberfest 2017, OpenEBS recently launched it’s very first edition of OpenEBS Hackfest from Nov 15, 2017 to Dec 15,
For this Hackfest, we are on the lookout for awesome PR contributors, and we are giving away cool swag to each contributor. And the contributor of the best PR also gets to win a laptop from our

Want to learn how to deploy Cassandra on Kubernetes with OpenEBS?
Written by Murat Karslioglu, VP Solutions of OpenEBS, this blog explains how to deploy Cassandra on Kubernetes with OpenEBS very elaborately, this piece also talks about why you should deploy Cassandra on Kubernetes and even lists down the prerequisites for doing the same. The blog gives acts as a step by step guide for the deployment of Cassandra. So if you have ever asked yourself this very question, please read the blog and don't forget to give us your feedback!
Installing OpenEBS on IBM Cloud private This update focuses on configuring OpenEBS as a persistent
storage option and deploying a stateful workload (MongoDB) using OpenEBS storage classes. To install OpenEBS on IBM Cloud private, read this blog. Deploying Jenkins on Kubernetes + OpenEBS Running dynamic slaves in a Kubernetes/Docker environment and automating the scaling of Jenkins slaves running in Kubernetes
on top of OpenEBS minimizes the deployment time and cost. With OpenEBS, it is possible to build extremely scalable test cycles. You will be able to create instant snapshots (thanks to the CoW)
from the master and deploy new slaves faster and dynamically on demand. Read More Deploying Cassandra Cluster / ring on Kubernetes with OpenEBS OpenEBS can help you to place your persistent volumes across the datacenter, multiple cloud vendors and fault domains against Cassandra replica failures. Not only can you avoid rebalancing your
cluster in case of a datacenter failure but also in case of node failures in a rack, you can bring up the same node from a snapshot and minimize the time needed to rebalance. Read More
We are at the Bay Area Kubernetes Meetup! December 14, 2017 Murat Karslioglu,
VP Solutions, is giving a talk on Containerized Storage for Containers, where he is going to explain to the Whys and the Hows of Containerized Storage and
also what is wrong with stateful workloads on containers today. If you are around, RSVP today!
We support Open Source and want to make contributing to it easier, hence we are opening up Open Source Cafe ,one of its kind an open source workplace in Bangalore for contributing to Open
Source, building an open source community and learning more about Cloud Native storage.
Once open, we are offering a variety of weekly 101 courses like Kubernetes 101, Docker 101, Prometheus 101 and many more. Register now to be a part
