Acorn facilitates the deployment of apps in Kubernetes

Acorn promises to enable the deployment of applications in hypercomplex Kubernetes constructs in seconds.

Distributors such as Red Hat and SUSE have been working to turn their large enterprise distributions into container runtime environments to outsource much of the hassle of package maintenance to the vendors of programs. In this and many other places, the motto "Kubernetes first" applies. Infrastructure as Code and continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines with all kinds of automatisms, including implicit error correction, are attractive factors simply missing in conventional deployment models.

For some admins, however, getting used to the world of containers and fleet managers quickly becomes a nightmare. Kubernetes and the container lobby promise that they will make everything far simpler and easier to manage. However, if you are setting up Kubernetes (K8s) for the first time and need a configuration that is not provided in the default settings of the respective K8s distribution, you will find yourself at a complete loss (Figure 1).
