Photon OS - Minimal Linux container host

  •        2758

Photon is a technology preview of a minimal Linux container host. It is designed to have a small footprint and boot extremely quickly on VMware platforms. Photon is intended to invite collaboration around running containerized applications in a virtualized environment. It is optimized for vSphere. It supports Docker, rkt, and the Pivotal Garden container specifications.

vic - Integrated containers engine on vSphere

  •    Go

vSphere Integrated Containers Engine (VIC Engine) is a container runtime for vSphere, allowing developers familiar with Docker to develop in containers and deploy them alongside traditional VM-based workloads on vSphere clusters, and allowing for these workloads to be managed through the vSphere UI in a way familiar to existing vSphere admins.See VIC Engine Architecture for a high level overview.

containerd - An open and reliable container runtime

  •    Go

containerd is an industry-standard container runtime with an emphasis on simplicity, robustness and portability. It is available as a daemon for Linux and Windows, which can manage the complete container lifecycle of its host system: image transfer and storage, container execution and supervision, low-level storage and network attachments, etc.. containerd is designed to be embedded into a larger system, rather than being used directly by developers or end-users.

Apache Karaf - OSGi distribution for server-side applications

  •    Java

Karaf Container is a modern and polymorphic container. It's a lightweight, powerful, and enterprise ready container powered by OSGi. By polymorphic, it means that Karaf can host any kind of applications: OSGi, Spring, WAR, and much more. It uses either the Apache Felix or Eclipse Equinox OSGi frameworks, providing additional features on top of the framework.

PiCluster - Manage Docker Containers

  •    Javascript

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.

OpenEBS - Containerized Storage for Containers

  •    Go

OpenEBS is containerized block storage written in Go for cloud native and other environments w/ per container (or pod) QoS SLAs, tiering and replica policies across AZs and environments, and predictable and scalable performance.


docker-plex

  •    

Plex organizes video, music and photos from personal media libraries and streams them to smart TVs, streaming boxes and mobile devices. This container is packaged as a standalone Plex Media Server. The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side. For example with a port -p external:internal - what this shows is the port mapping from internal to external of the container. So -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 http://192.168.x.x:8080 would show you what's running INSIDE the container on port 80.

govmomi - Go library for the VMware vSphere API

  •    Go

A Go library for interacting with VMware vSphere APIs (ESXi and/or vCenter). The APIs exposed by this library very closely follow the API described in the VMware vSphere API Reference Documentation. It includes govcsim package which implements a vSphere Web Services (SOAP) SDK endpoint intended for testing consumers of the API. While the package is written in the Go language, it can be used by any language that can talk to the vSphere API.

gvisor - Container Runtime Sandbox

  •    Go

gVisor is a user-space kernel, written in Go, that implements a substantial portion of the Linux system surface. It includes an Open Container Initiative (OCI) runtime called runsc that provides an isolation boundary between the application and the host kernel. The runsc runtime integrates with Docker and Kubernetes, making it simple to run sandboxed containers. gVisor takes a distinct approach to container sandboxing and makes a different set of technical trade-offs compared to existing sandbox technologies, thus providing new tools and ideas for the container security landscape.

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

  •    Go

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. It includes only the services needed to run Docker. RancherOS reduces the hassle with updating, patching, and maintaining your container host operating system.

Rancher - Complete container management platform

docker-grafana-graphite - Docker image with StatsD, Graphite, Grafana 2 and a Kamon Dashboard

  •    Nginx

If you already have services running on your host that are using any of these ports, you may wish to map the container ports to whatever you want by changing left side number in the --publish parameters. You can omit ports you do not plan to use. Find more details about mapping ports in the Docker documentation on Binding container ports to the host and Legacy container links.The Dockerfile and supporting configuration files are available in our Github repository. This comes specially handy if you want to change any of the StatsD, Graphite or Grafana settings, or simply if you want to know how the image was built.

cadvisor - Analyzes resource usage and performance characteristics of running containers.

  •    Go

cAdvisor (Container Advisor) provides container users an understanding of the resource usage and performance characteristics of their running containers. It is a running daemon that collects, aggregates, processes, and exports information about running containers. Specifically, for each container it keeps resource isolation parameters, historical resource usage, histograms of complete historical resource usage and network statistics. This data is exported by container and machine-wide.cAdvisor has native support for Docker containers and should support just about any other container type out of the box. We strive for support across the board so feel free to open an issue if that is not the case. cAdvisor's container abstraction is based on lmctfy's so containers are inherently nested hierarchically.

Flocker - Container data volume manager for your Dockerized application
