ignite - Ignite a Firecracker microVM

  •        16

Weave Ignite is an open source Virtual Machine (VM) manager with a container UX and built-in GitOps management. Ignite makes Firecracker easy to use by adopting its developer experience from containers. With Ignite, you pick an OCI-compliant image (Docker image) that you want to run as a VM, and then just execute ignite run instead of docker run. There’s no need to use VM-specific tools to build .vdi, .vmdk, or .qcow2 images, just do a docker build from any base image you want (e.g. ubuntu:18.04 from Docker Hub), and add your preferred contents.

firecracker-containerd - firecracker-containerd enables containerd to manage containers as Firecracker microVMs

  •    Go

This repository enables the use of a container runtime, containerd, to manage Firecracker microVMs. Like traditional containers, Firecracker microVMs offer fast start-up and shut-down and minimal overhead. Unlike traditional containers, however, they can provide an additional layer of isolation via the KVM hypervisor. To maintain compatibility with the container ecosystem, where possible, we use container standards such as the OCI image format.

runtime - OCI (Open Containers Initiative) compatible runtime using Virtual Machines

  •    Go

cc-runtime is the next generation of Intel® Clear Containers runtime. This tool, henceforth referred to simply as "the runtime", builds upon the virtcontainers project to provide a high-performance standards-compliant runtime that creates hardware-virtualized containers which leverage Intel's VT-x technology.

cc-oci-runtime - OCI (Open Containers Initiative) compatible runtime for Intel® Architecture

  •    C

Now that the next-generation runtime has been released, this project is now in maintenance mode. All users are encouraged to switch to the new cc-runtime runtime. Installation and upgrade information is available on the new runtime's wiki.

runq - run regular Docker images in KVM/Qemu

  •    Go

runq is a hypervisor-based Docker runtime based on runc to run regular Docker images in a lightweight KVM/Qemu virtual machine. The focus is on solving real problems, not on number of features. runq requires a host kernel >= 4.8 with KVM and VHOST_VSOCK support enabled. The easiest way to build runq and to put all dependencies together is using Docker. For fast development cycles a regular build environment might be more efficient. For this refer to section Developing runq below.

devspace - Cloud Native Software Development with Kubernetes and Docker - simply run "devspace up" in any of your projects and start coding directly on top of Kubernetes (works with minikube, self-hosted and cloud-based clusters)

  •    Go

With a DevSpace, you can build, test and run code directly inside any Kubernetes cluster. You can run devspace up in any of your projects and the client-only DevSpace CLI will start a DevSpace within your Kubernetes cluster. Keep coding as usual and the DevSpace CLI will sync any code change directly into the containers of your DevSpace. No more waiting for re-building images, re-deploying containers and restarting applications on every source code change. Simply edit your code with any IDE and run your code instantly inside your DevSpace.

runc - CLI tool for spawning and running containers according to the OCI specification

  •    Go

runc is a CLI tool for spawning and running containers according to the OCI specification. runc depends on and tracks the runtime-spec repository. We will try to make sure that runc and the OCI specification major versions stay in lockstep. This means that runc 1.0.0 should implement the 1.0 version of the specification.

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.

Apollo is an open source project to aid with building and deploying IAAS and PAAS services. It is particularly geared towards managing containerized applications across multiple hosts, and big data type workloads. Apollo leverages other open source components to provide basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of infrastructure and applications.However, the majority of initial development is happening on AWS so most of our instructions and scripts are built around that. Stayed tuned for more cloud provider support! If you make it work on other infrastructure please let us know and contribute instructions/code. For more info on cloud support see our roadmap.
