Google willing to inspect Rocket for future use
Google decided to standardize on Docker containers and has geared Kubernetes to work with Docker containers. So what does Google's Craig McLuckie, Compute Engine product lead, say about CoreOS' Rocket? At the Linux Collaboration Summit, he said: "Everything we do is based on Docker. When the Rocket guys bring out Rocket 1.0, we'll take a look at that." The Rocket project, which started Dec. 1 with release .1, is on release .3 now and moving rapidly toward a 1.0 release. CoreOS Alex Polvi hazarded a guess: 1.0 will be ready late in the first half or early second half. Then he added, there'll be a 1.0 release "when it's ready."
