The Rook project hit a major milestone earlier this month when it released version 1.0. Rook provides storage orchestration for Kubernetes.
According to its GitHub page, Rook provides “the platform, framework, and support for a diverse set of storage solutions to natively integrate with cloud-native environments.” Rook makes storage self-managing, self-scaling, and self-healing by automating deployment, bootstrapping, configuration, provisioning, scaling, upgrading, migration, disaster recovery, monitoring, and resource management.
The project had its first public release in November 2016, and has now passed 5,000 stars on GitHub.
The project was also accepted into the CNCF Incubator last September, and has since had two releases, 39.4 million container downloads, 900 new commits, and 60 new contributors. “Those numbers clearly show a ton of hard work from the developers and a lot of new interest and excitement from the users. We are really proud of the entire community,” Jared Watts, senior maintainer of Rook, wrote in a post.
As part of the 1.0 release, the project also got a new website with an updated layout for user guides and documentation.
