Tomorrow, MacStadium is announcing something big, but we’ve got a sneak peek just for MacStories readers. MacStadium is releasing Orka, their new virtualization platform. Orka (Orchestration with Kubernetes on Apple) is a new build infrastructure based on Docker and Kubernetes technology. It’s the very first solution for orchestrating macOS in a cloud environment using Kubernetes on Mac hardware.
MacStadium developed Orka to provide Mac and iOS developers with the ability to use container technology features the same way they can on other platforms. With Orka, MacStadium’s customers will now have a more software-driven, self-service capable experience using MacStadium’s infrastructure that’s similar to what they may have used with AWS, Azure, or GCP.
At launch, Orka will ship with plugins for Jenkins. Additional Plugins for Buildkite, Bamboo, and TeamCity will be released soon. Orka has already been adopted by Homebrew, the popular package manager for macOS. Aso, if any readers plan to be at DevOps World | Jenkins World, be sure to catch MacStadium’s live Orka demo on Wednesday, August 14th or visit MacStadium.com to learn more about Orka.
Of course, MacStadium is also the premier Mac hosting company that provides dedicated Mac hardware and private cloud services, and it has a special deal just for MacStories readers.
