What's new in Container Stacks v2?

This is a quick update on new features and improvements on CSv2, our Kubernetes backed container stacks:

Feature Parity

We are getting closer to feature parity between CSv2 and our v1 Container Stacks. This has been completed for all service.yml attributes with the exception of the following deprecated elements:

services/pre_start_signal  
services/add_to_lb  
services/privileged  
services/constraints/servers  
services/resources  
services/requires  
services/restart_on_deploy  

Please note that using version: 2 at the top of your service.yml is needed for CSv2.

We are now working on bringing our API and Toolbelt to support CSv2.

Kubernetes node labels

You can now use a key=value format in server tags and they will be synched with Kubernetes nodes. This can be used for node selection for different services.

Shell into the container right from the web

This is a cool feature that allows you to shell into a running container right from the web UI.

Switching to dedicated or shared Kubernetes Master node

When you start a new CSv2 stack, you usually have only 1 server. This will be used as the Kubernetes Master node but also takes on your application workload. Ideally, you would want to have dedicated Master nodes to take care of managing your cluster and put your workload on other "worker" nodes. This is now as easy as clicking a button in the UI!
