OKD Streams, the Community Distribution of Kubernetes that powersRed Hat OpenShift, has launched a fully open source release pipeline that the community can participate in, to help support and manage the release cycle ourselves. The OKD Community is now able to build and release stable builds of OKD 4.12 on CentOS Stream CoreOS which hereon we are calling OKD Streams.
An OKD Stream refers to a build, test, and release pipeline for any configuration of OKD, the open source kubernetes distribution that powers OpenShift. It is the first of many OKD Streams that will enable developers inside and outside of Red Hat to easily experiment with and explore Cloud Native technologies.
The new OKD Streams are built using Tekton pipelines, which makes it easier to explore building many different kinds of pipelines. Tekton is a Continuous Deployment (CD) system that enables admins to run tasks and pipelines in a composable and flexible manner. This new pipeline approach enables builds that can be customized via parameters, even the tasks within the pipeline can be exchanged or moved around. Add your own tasks. They are reusable templates for creating your own testable stream of OKD. Run the pipelines on any infrastructure, including locally in Kubernetes using podman, for example, or you can run them on a vanilla Kubernetes cluster.
