CoreOS: A Distro for Virtualization!

The Virtual World
CoreOS is a thin virtualization specific Linux Distro that you should look into! CoreOS: A lean, mean virtualization machine NetworkWorld - By Tom Henderson - CoreOS is a slimmed-down Linux distribution designed for easy creation of lots of OS instances. We like the concept. CoreOS uses Docker to deploy applications in virtual containers; it also features a management communications bus, and group instance management. Rackspace, Amazon Web Services (AWS), GoogleComputeEngine (GCE), and Brightbox are early cloud compute providers compatible with CoreOS and with specific deployment capacity for CoreOS. We tried Rackspace and AWS, and also some local 'fleet' deployments. CoreOS is skinny. We questioned its claims of less overall memory used, and wondered if it was stripped to the point of uselessness. We found that, yes, it saves a critical…
