Weaveworks, a start-up that offers networking and monitoring software for containers and microservices, today announced the public beta of Weave Cloud, a microservices console allowing developers and operations to quickly connect, visualize and monitor containers and microservices, regardless of the orchestrator. The console can be used to connect and manage containers and microservices, bridging the gap between the orchestration platform and the application. The product integrates SaaS versions of the full Weave stack, including Weave Net and Weave Scope.
Weaveworks is also introducing Weave Net 1.6, part of Weave Cloud, which adds native Docker container network integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). Specifically, Weave Net orchestrates Docker and AWS VPC so that containers become “first class citizens” on the VPC network, using IP addresses from the VPC and gaining direct access to all of the rich networking capabilities of VPC.
