Earlier this year, cloud platform provider Univa re-introduced Navops, its multi-tenant container platform, as a way for multiple clients to run microservices on Kubernetes. In this re-introduction, we discovered the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a Navops customer that gathers health and wellness data from universities, organizations, and government agencies on a global scale — and we learned how putting that data to use in analytics operations is having an immediate effect, in terms of lives saved by healthcare providers.
Later that month, Univa formally contributed Navops to the open source community. Then, in September, the company added a feature it had been hinting about, that could conceivably turn the entire orchestrator market upside-down: a service that enables workloads and frameworks designed for Apache Mesos to be supported by Kubernetes instead.
“The Mesos framework thinks it’s running on Mesos, essentially,” explained Robert Lalonde, Univa’s vice president and general manager for Navops, in an interview with Alex Williams for The New Stack Makers.
