Huawei Launches a Kubernetes-based Container Engine
Joining an increasing number of companies, Asian telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies has released its own container orchestration engine, the Cloud Container Engine (CCE).
Ying Xiong, Huawei’s chief architect of cloud computing, announced CCE version 1.0 at LinuxCon North America, being held this week in Toronto. Like orchestration engines from CoreOS and Apprenda, CCE will be based on Google open-source Kubernetes platform. During his talk, Xiong discussed the growing use of containers in China.
