Tectonic by CoreOS, The secure, automated, and hybrid enterprise Kubernetes platform.


Containerization is the future of enterprise infrastructure as a more resource-efficient alternative to Virtual Machines (VMs) and an enabler of new models like micro-services. To successfully deploy containers in production at scale, an orchestration layer is necessary. CoreOS has led the containerization and Kubernetes movements from the beginning. Benefiting from deeply engaged with open source communities and the domain knowledge gained by working with large enterprises, Tectonic, the secure, automated, and hybrid enterprise Kubernetes platform, is our vision in response to the pressing needs.

Tectonic Console

While kubectl command line tool is powerful, Tectonic Console serves as a great complementary that helps our users, the infrastructure owners and application owners, to know what's going on to their clusters or apps fast, so as to maintain Kubernetes environments with ease.

I started at CoreOS in January of 2017. Since then, I have been working with a team of product visionaries, talented engineers, and many others to build and shape the experience of container orchestration primarily on the Tectonic Console, the web-based user interface of Tectonic. Detailed design process or example deliverables are available upon request.

Never Ending Journey

"Digital design is like painting, except the paint never dries."

As users' needs and business goals are constantly evolving, I believe design is an iterative process in theory that never ends. It always continues after the product is shipped. The tweets below are the true reactions to the features that I helped design in Tectonic Console. I cherish the feedback on social media as the outside proof of where we did a good job, or alternatively, the golden compass that guides us to a better direction in future iterations.
