See whats coming in OpenShift 3

With each milestone of Origin comes a new version of OpenShift. And now that the Origin M5 source code repo for OpenShift 3 is available, we're progressing towards a whole new architecture entirely re-engineered from the ground up. This new architecture integrates Docker and the Kubernetes container orchestration and management system, available on an Atomic host optimized for running containerized applications. On top of all that, OpenShift will incorporate effective and efficient DevOps workflows that play a critical role in platform-as-a-service to accelerate application delivery.

Krish Sumaranian, Director of OpenShift Strategy, and Clayton Coleman, engineering lead for OpenShift talk about what’s up and coming OpenShift 3.

Standarization through Containerization

"Standards are powerful forces in the software industry. They can drive technology forward by bringing together the combined efforts of multiple developers, different communities, and even competing vendors."
