Solution-Soft's Time Machine® now Supports Kubernetes, Docker Swarm & OpenShift

SANTA CLARA, CA, April 27, 2019 ­ SolutionSoft Systems Inc. (Solution-Soft), the leader in date and time testing software solutions, has released a new version of its flagship software Time Machine to support container orchestration, including Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and OpenShift.

After updating Time Machine and the Time Machine Product Suite to support Docker Container in 2017 (available at the Red Hat Container Catalog), Solution-Soft now fully supports container orchestration systems; Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Redhat OpenShift with its container-aware Time Machine, Management Console, Sync Server, and Floating License Server.

"As more and more companies move their applications into the container orchestration paradigm, time traveling the entire environment to run critical application testing becomes a big challenge," says Paul Wang, CTO of Solution-Soft. "We heard the increasing need from our customers, so it's very exciting for us to announce this easy-to-use and powerful solution that addresses this urgent need in a timely fashion."

With container orchestration, dozens or hundreds of micro-containers may be working together dynamically based on workload and fault tolerance. As companies have adopted this technology into their infrastructure, we have seen increasing demand from our clients for virtual clock testing within these environments. After many months of intensive R&D, Solution-Soft is thrilled to announce a software update that meets these needs.

Our innovation: Bundling the Floating License Server, Sync Server, and Management Console. Containers scan, check in and check out of their licenses automatically and directly through the Floating License Server, getting and applying for license keys from the vendor without human intervention. Sync Server broadcasts a virtual clock to all participating containers. URL APIs are available for test automation and dynamically update participant membership. Management Console enables easy management of the virtual clock across container hosts and pods. Our container-aware Time Machine makes the virtual clock truly independent for containers, even when using the same user ID across containers."
