MONROE, La. — July 20, 2015 — CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) today announced it has contributed three projects to the open-source community designed to improve the way developers use Docker, Chef and vSphere technologies.
The projects are:
- Chef provisioning driver for vSphere simplifies the process to provision Chef nodes on VMware vSphere infrastructure, filling a gap for enterprise developers who use VMware for their core virtualization technology.
- Lorry.io, a tool for creating, composing and validating Docker Compose YAML files, makes it easy to share and deploy entire applications composed of Docker containers.
- ImageLayers.io enables developers to visualize Docker images and the layers that compose them, see how each command in the Dockerfile contributes to the final image and compare multiple Docker images side-by-side.
“The embrace of open-source technologies within the enterprise continues to rise, and we are proud to be huge open-source advocates and contributors at CenturyLink,” said Jared Wray, senior vice president of platforms at CenturyLink. “We believe it’s critical to be active in the open-source community, building flexible and feature-rich tools that enable new possibilities for developers.”
CenturyLink and its employees have made many open-source contributions. Examples from the past year include Panamax, a Docker management platform; Dray, used to manage Docker workflows; a Cloud Total Cost of Ownership tool; and a Cloud Cost Estimator tool for CenturyLink Cloud. CenturyLink also has active roles in open-source projects and consortiums such as OpenStack and The Cloud Foundry Foundation.
