Docker gets a GitHub-like repository from CoreOS

Joab Jackson | Aug. 14, 2014
Chasing the successful hosting model of GitHub, Linux distributor CoreOS has set up an online repository where organizations can store and share their Docker containers.

CoreOS' Premium Managed Service, which includes a copy of the repository that can be installed locally, starts at $2,100 per month for 25 servers.

Two Google engineers launched Quay.io in October 2013. CoreOS won't reveal how many users the Quay.io service has attracted in its short life span, though the service has been used by a number of startups, such as the online shopping company ModCloth and the BitCoin exchange Bex.

The purchase of the New York-based Quay.io also allows CoreOS to expand operations to New York, where it can recruit additional engineers, customer support technicians and other personnel who will be needed as the company grows, Polvi said.

In other Linux distribution news, SUSE has released a new version of its OpenStack distribution, SUSE Cloud 4, which now comes with the Ceph distributed storage system for supporting block, file and object storage within a single cluster.
