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

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.

    * 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:
