CoreOS on Brightbox Cloud

We’re now providing server images for CoreOS. CoreOS is a lightweight operating system built for large-scale distributed deployments. It comes with a self-assembling clustered metadata service called etcd and is pre-installed with Docker, the Linux container engine.

The images are available now in our image library and integrate with our Amazon EC2-compatible metadata service, so they install your ssh keys automatically on boot. You can just ssh straight in as the core user.

We’ve written a guide to help you get started. You should be able to get a three node CoreOS cluster up and running in about 5 minutes!
