containerpilot - A service for autodiscovery and configuration of applications running in containers

  •        6

An init system for cloud-native distributed applications that automates the process of service discovery, configuration, and lifecycle management inside the container, so you can focus on your apps.We can write our new applications to do that, but existing apps will need some help. We can wrap each application in a shell script that registers itself with the discovery service easily enough, but watching for changes to that service and ensuring that health checks are being made is more complicated. We can put a second process in the container, but as soon as we do that we need an init system running inside the container as well.

Registrator - Service registry bridge for Docker with pluggable adapters

Service registry bridge for Docker. Registrator automatically registers and deregisters services for any Docker container by inspecting containers as they come online. Registrator supports pluggable service registries, which currently includes Consul, etcd and SkyDNS 2.

node-workflow - Task orchestration, creation and running using NodeJS

This repository is part of the Joyent Triton project. See the contribution guidelines -- Triton does not use GitHub PRs -- and general documentation at the main Triton project page.If you are building a completely new system composed of many discrete API applications, each of them with a clearly defined area of responsibility, or if you are trying to assemble a collaboration channel between a heterogeneous set of unrelated API applications, you need a means to orchestrate interactions between these applications.

skydock - Service discovery via DNS for docker

Docker supports DNS based service discovery now. You should use the Docker implementation instead of this project. Skydock was built at a time when Docker did not support DNS discovery or auto registration. I'll keep the repo up for past years and as reference for others but don't use it if you have a recent version of Docker.Skydock monitors docker events when containers start, stop, die, kill, etc and inserts records into a dynamic DNS server skydns. This allows standard DNS queries for services running inside docker containers. Because lets face it, if you have to modify your application code to work with other service discovery solutions you might as well just give up. DNS just works and it works well. Also you cannot be expected to modify application code that you don't own. Passing service urls via the cli or in static config files (nginx) will not be possible if your service discovery solution requires a client library just to fetch an IP.

Highly configurable Docker images running Alpine linux and s6 process management. Using Docker makes your infrastructure and environment consistent, testable, scalable and repeatable.

PiCluster - Manage Docker Containers

PiCluster is a simple way to manage Docker containers on multiple hosts. Docker Swarm not that good and Kubernetes was too difficult to install currently on ARM. PiCluster will only build and run images from Dockerfile's on the host specified in the config file. This software will work on regular x86 hardware also and is not tied to ARM.

Packer - Build Automated Machine Images

Packer is a tool for building identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration. It is lightweight, runs on every major operating system, and is highly performant, creating machine images for multiple platforms in parallel.

Helios - Docker container orchestration platform

Helios is a Docker orchestration platform for deploying and managing containers across an entire fleet of servers. Helios provides a HTTP API as well as a command-line client to interact with servers running your containers. It also keeps a history of events in your cluster including information such as deploys, restarts and version changes.

Consul - Tool for Service Discovery, Monitoring and Configuration

Consul is a tool for service discovery and configuration. Consul is distributed, highly available, and extremely scalable. Consul makes it simple for services to register themselves and to discover other services via a DNS or HTTP interface. Register external services such as SaaS providers as well. It prevents routing requests to unhealthy hosts and enables services to easily provide circuit breakers.

acs-engine - Azure Container Service Engine - a place for community to collaborate and build the best open Docker container infrastructure for Azure

The Azure Container Service Engine (acs-engine) generates ARM (Azure Resource Manager) templates for Docker enabled clusters on Microsoft Azure with your choice of DC/OS, Kubernetes, Swarm Mode, or Swarm orchestrators. The input to the tool is a cluster definition. The cluster definition is very similar to (in many cases the same as) the ARM template syntax used to deploy a Microsoft Azure Container Service cluster.Execute make ci to run the checkin validation tests.

The Anchore engine can be accessed directly through a RESTful API or via the Anchore CLI.

Kubernetes - Container Cluster Manager

Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions. Using the concepts of "labels" and "pods", it groups the containers which make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.
