Kubernetes Webservice Backend Available for PHP webservices

The Kubernetes ('k8s') backend for Tool Labs webservices is open to
beta testers from the community as a replacment for Grid Engine
(qsub/jsub).

We have focused on providing support for PHP webservices with other
job types to follow. No action is required for users who do not want
to change at this time.

Advantages:

  • Debian Jessie
  • PHP (5.6)
  • Better isolation between tools
  • Testing the future platform and helping Tool Labs mature

How to switch an existing webervice to the Kubernetes backend:

webservice --backend=gridengine stop
webservice --backend=kubernetes start

How to switch an existing webservice back to Grid Engine:

webservice --backend=kubernetes stop
webservice --backend=gridengine start
