Security-Oriented CoreOS Linux Operating System Is Now Known as Container Linux

As CoreOS is streamlined for containers and designed from the offset to deliver an automatic system update mechanism that allows you to immediately receive the latest security patches and keep your infrastructure up-to-date with the latest GNU/Linux technologies, the team renamed CoreOS Linux to “Container Linux by CoreOS.” The decision to rename the OS was taken earlier during the Tectonic Summit 2016 event presented by CoreOS, where the team also unveiled the next-gen CoreOS Tectonic enterprise Kubernetes solution for deploying and managing containers at scale, which is now based the upstream Kubernetes 1.5 release to deliver self-driving capabilities.
