Rancher - Complete container management platform

  •        185

Rancher is an open source project that provides a complete platform for operating Docker in production. It provides infrastructure services such as multi-host networking, global and local load balancing, and volume snapshots. It integrates native Docker management capabilities such as Docker Machine and Docker Swarm. It offers a rich user experience that enables devops admins to operate Docker in production at large scale.

Rancher is deployed as a set of Docker containers. Running Rancher is as simple as launching two containers. One container as the management server and another container on a node as an agent.

Træfik (pronounced like traffic) is a modern HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer made to deploy microservices with ease. It supports several backends (Docker, Swarm mode, Kubernetes, Marathon, Consul, Etcd, Rancher, Amazon ECS, and a lot more) to manage its configuration automatically and dynamically.

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

  •    Go

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.

Portainer - Simple management UI for Docker

  •    Javascript

Portainer is a lightweight management UI which allows you to easily manage your different Docker environments (Docker hosts or Swarm clusters). Portainer is meant to be as simple to deploy as it is to use. It consists of a single container that can run on any Docker engine (can be deployed as Linux container or a Windows native container). It allows you to manage your Docker containers, images, volumes, networks and more ! It is compatible with the standalone Docker engine and with Docker Swarm mode.

k3os - Purpose built OS for Kubernetes, fully managed by Kubernetes.

  •    Go

k3OS is a Linux distribution designed to remove as much as possible OS maintenance in a Kubernetes cluster. It is specifically designed to only have what is need to run k3s. Additionally the OS is designed to be managed by kubectl once a cluster is bootstrapped. Nodes only need to join a cluster and then all aspects of the OS can be managed from Kubernetes. Both k3OS and k3s upgrades are handled by the k3OS operator. Download the ISO from the latest release and run in VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM. The server will automatically start a single node Kubernetes cluster. Log in with the user rancher and run kubectl. This is a "live install" running from the ISO media and changes will not persist after reboot.

rexray - REX-Ray is a container storage orchestration engine enabling persistence for cloud native workloads

  •    Go

Note: All hosted unstable and staged binaries older than 0.11.2-rc1 have been pruned due to quota restrictions. The long-term goal of the REX-Ray project is to enable collaboration between organizations focused on creating enterprise-grade storage plugins for the Container Storage Interface (CSI). As a rapidly changing specification, CSI support within REX-Ray will be planned when CSI reaches version 1.0, currently projected for a late 2018 release. In the interim, there remains active engagement with the project to support the community.

infrakit - A toolkit for creating and managing declarative, self-healing infrastructure.

  •    Go

InfraKit is a toolkit for infrastructure orchestration. With an emphasis on immutable infrastructure, it breaks down infrastructure automation and management processes into small, pluggable components. These components work together to actively ensure the infrastructure state matches the user's specifications. InfraKit therefore provides infrastructure support for higher-level container orchestration systems and can make your infrastructure self-managing and self-healing. In this video, InfraKit was used to build a custom linux operating system (based on linuxkit). We then deployed a cluster of virtual machine instances on a local Mac laptop using the Mac Xhyve hypervisor (HyperKit). A cluster of 3 servers booted up in seconds. Later, after the custom OS image has been updated with a new public key, InfraKit detects the change and orchestrates a rolling update of the nodes. We then deploy the same OS image to a bare-metal ARM server running on Packet.net, where the server uses custom ipxe boot directly from the localhost. It demonstrates some of the key concepts and components in InfraKit and shows how InfraKit can be used to implement an integrated workflow from custom OS image creation to cluster deployment and Day N management. The entire demo is published as a playbook, and you can create your own playbooks too.
