longshoreman - Automated deployment with Docker.


Longshoreman automates application deployment using Docker. Just create a Docker repository (or use a service), configure the cluster using AWS or Digital Ocean (or whatever you like) and deploy applications using a Heroku-like CLI tool.We created Longshoreman because we love using Docker but were frustrated with the lack of production-ready deployment options that were available at the time. We looked closely at Deis, Flynn, Dokku and others, but they either did not meet our requirements or were explicitly marked as not ready for production. We were extremely impressed by Deis in particular and its use of bleeding edge technologies like CoreOS, etcd and systemd. The biggest shortcoming we found with Deis is that it rebuilds Dockerfiles from scratch for each deploy (as far as I know).

gantryd - Framework for easy management of docker-based components across machines


gantryd is a distributed, etcd-based system for running, updating, monitoring and managing various Docker images (known as "components") across multiple machines.gantryd manages the running, monitoring and draining of containers, automatically updating machines progressively on update, and draining the old containers as it goes along. A container is only shutdown when all connections to it have terminated (or it is manually killed). This, combined with progressive update, allows for continuous deployment by simply pushing a new docker image to a repository and running update via gantryd.py.

Moby Project - An open framework to assemble specialized container systems

udocker - A basic user tool to execute simple docker containers in batch or interactive systems without root privileges


A basic user tool to execute simple docker containers in user space without requiring root privileges. Enables download and execution of docker containers by non-privileged users in Linux systems where docker is not available. It can be used to pull and execute docker containers in Linux batch systems and interactive clusters that are managed by other entities such as grid infrastructures or externally managed batch or interactive systems. The INDIGO udocker does not require any type of privileges nor the deployment of services by system administrators. It can be downloaded and executed entirely by the end user.

Docker-Secure-Deployment-Guidelines - Deployment checklist for securely deploying Docker


Within today’s growing cloud-based IT market, there is a strong demand for virtualisation technologies. Unfortunately most virtualisation solutions are not flexible enough to meet developer requirements and the overhead implied by the use of full virtualisation solutions becomes a burden on the scalability of the infrastructure. Docker reduces that overhead by allowing developers and system administrators to seamlessly deploy containers for applications and services required for business operations. However, because Docker leverages the same kernel as the host system to reduce the need for resources, containers can be exposed to significant security risks if not adequately configured. The following itemised list suggests hardening actions that can be undertaken to improve the security posture of the containers within their respective environment. It should be noted that proposed solutions only apply to deployment of Linux Docker containers on Linux-based hosts, using the most recent release of Docker at the time of this writing (1.4.0, commit 4595d4f, dating 11/12/14). Part of the content below is based on publications from Jérôme Petazzoni [1] and Daniel J Walsh [2]. This document aims at adding on to their recommendations and how they can specifically be implemented within Docker. Note: Most of suggested command line options can be stored and used in a similar manner inside a Dockerfile for automated image building. Docker 1.3 now supports cryptographic signatures [3] to ascertain the origin and integrity of official repository images. This feature is however still a work in progress as Docker will issue a warning but not prevent the image from actually running. Furthermore, it does not apply to non-official images. In general, ensure that images are only retrieved from trusted repositories and that the --insecure-registry=[] command line option is never used.

RancherOS - Tiny Linux distro that runs the entire OS as Docker containers


RancherOS is a minimalist Linux distribution perfect for running Docker containers. It runs Docker directly on top of the kernel and delivers Linux services as containers.

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.

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


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.
