An easier way to develop, package, and deploy applications
Manage any container-based workloads or microservices with Qstack
Qstack’s Application Orchestration module enables you to deploy any containerized workload on top of an automatically provisioned Kubernetes cluster. Easily run YAML scripts, Docker-based images or official Helm charts to start applications that can be managed from the Qstack UI or from the built-in console. Qstack allows for full configuration and scaling of both Kubernetes clusters and running applications thus providing a very flexible and powerful orchestration tool for DevOps teams.
Qstack’s container and application orchestration module integrates the Kubernetes engine and fully supports the ‘kubectl’ CLI and API as well as powerful monitoring and display of cluster status and health.
Enabling application orchestration on both virtual machines and bare metal instances provides future-proof migration options for Kubernetes clusters between cloud environments.
Supporting agile DevOps processes
With a more rapid cycle of building, testing and releasing software applications, the need for tools and platforms supporting DevOps’ continuous delivery software pipeline becomes increasingly important. The Qstack container and application orchestration module provides a unique approach for DevOps to efficiently manage and deliver container-based microservices and workloads. Qstack’s cluster management and application orchestration supports agile DevOps collaboration, continuous integration and development (CI/CD) processes. As container-based microservices and applications continue to mature from PoC to production environments, Qstack is well positioned to handle the deployment complexities and operating large-scale container-centric systems.
Greatly simplified management and ease of use
With the Kubernetes platform integrated, Qstack offers an intuitive and powerful user interface to manage clusters and applications. Clusters and application stacks can be spun up in a matter of minutes through the Web UI or via the Kubernetes API. Furthermore, Qstack’s application orchestration layer supports remote administration using Kubernetes kubectl and Helm command line interfaces.
The complex cluster management and container scheduling, typically in native container-centric management platforms like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, and Mesos, is greatly simplified through the Qstack UI.

Part 2: DevOps, 12 factors and the next great thing – Containers vs. Applications
I’ll start with a statement. Container orchestration is NOT the same as Application Orchestration. Not even close. Containers are the darling of today’s tech industry but not the big solution or strategy that Application Orchestration represents. READ MORE…
