The Ultimate List of Containerization Tools
Solaris Containers (including Solaris Zones) is an implementation of operating system-level virtualization technology for x86 and SPARC systems, first released publicly in February 2004 in build 51 beta of Solaris 10, and subsequently in the first full release of Solaris 10, 2005. It is present in illumos (formerly OpenSolaris) distributions, such as OpenIndiana, SmartOS and […]
Kaniko is a tool to build container images from a Dockerfile, inside a container or Kubernetes cluster. Kaniko doesn’t depend on a Docker daemon and executes each command within a Dockerfile completely in user space. This enables building container images in environments that can’t easily or securely run a Docker daemon, such as a standard […]
Get a production-ready Kubernetes Cluster up and running in 20 minutes. Then keep it running smoothly with built-in storage, centralized monitoring, and automated upgrades. Power your business with a native Kubernetes experience while dramatically simplify Kubernetes provisioning, operations, and lifecycle management—without needing dedicated resources to manage infrastructure.
Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a highly scalable, high-performance container orchestration service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run and scale containerized applications on AWS. Amazon ECS eliminates the need for you to install and operate your own container orchestration software, manage and scale a cluster of virtual machines, or […]
Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers, by providing an additional layer of abstraction and automation of operating-system-level virtualization on Linux. Docker uses resource isolation features of the Linux kernel such as cgroups and kernel namespaces to allow independent “containers” to run within a single Linux instance, avoiding […]
Sysdig is open source, system-level exploration: capture system state and activity from a running Linux instance, then save, filter, and analyze. Sysdig captures system calls and events from the Linux kernel. You can save, filter, and analyze the data with our CLI or our desktop app. Think of sysdig as strace + tcpdump + htop […]
Istio makes it easy to create a network of deployed services with load balancing, service-to-service authentication, monitoring, and more, with few or no code changes in service code. You add Istio support to services by deploying a special sidecar proxy throughout your environment that intercepts all network communication between microservices, then configure and manage Istio […]
Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 2.0 is the only enterprise-ready container platform that enables IT leaders to choose how to cost-effectively build and manage their entire application portfolio at their own pace, without fear of architecture and infrastructure lock-in. Docker’s container platform enables organizations to accelerate digital and multi-cloud initiatives by automating the delivery of legacy […]
Codefresh is a continuous delivery and collaboration platform for Docker. Codefresh helps agile teams improve quality and increase speed-to-market by facilitating rapid feedback and testing cycles. Codefresh allows developers to instantly spin up any code change, feature branch and Docker image as part of a composition and share it with the entire team. This enables […]
linuxcontainers.org is the umbrella project behind LXC, LXD, LXCFS and CGManager. The goal is to offer a distro and vendor neutral environment for the development of Linux container technologies. Our main focus is system containers. That is, containers which offer an environment as close to possible as the one you’d get from a VM but […]
Supergiant is an open source container management platform built on top of Kubernetes. Use Supergiant to deploy Kubernetes on multiple clouds in minutes. Use the Supergiant API to streamline production deployment. Using Supergiant’s packing algorithm, lower hardware costs and use only the hardware you need with computed efficiency. Supergiant reads container RAM/CPU requests/limits and manages […]
OpenVZ (Open Virtuozzo) is an operating system-level virtualization technology for Linux. It allows a physical server to run multiple isolated operating system instances, called containers, virtual private servers (VPSs), or virtual environments (VEs.) OpenVZ is similar to Solaris Containers and LXC.
Podman is an open-source project that is available on most Linux platforms and resides on GitHub. Podman is a daemonless container engine for developing, managing, and running Open Container Initiative (OCI) containers and container images on your Linux System. Podman provides a Docker-compatible command line front end that can simply alias the Docker cli, `alias […]
Azure Container Instances offers the fastest and simplest way to run a container in Azure, without having to provision any virtual machines or learning new tools—it’s just your application, in a container, running in the cloud. With Azure Container Instances, you can easily run containers with a single command. Get started in seconds and lower […]
Tectonic, delivered by CoreOS, is an enterprise-ready platform for running Linux containers in a distributed environment. Tectonic combines Kubernetes and the CoreOS stack in a commercial distribution, prepackaged with an enterprise-ready management dashboard, an integrated container registry and a supported, continuously up-to-date distributed platform. Tectonic is available in any environment, cloud, or on-premise.
Helm helps you manage Kubernetes applications — Helm Charts helps you define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes application. Charts are easy to create, version, share, and publish — so start using Helm and stop the copy-and-paste madness. The latest version of Helm is maintained by the CNCF – in collaboration with Microsoft, […]
Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) makes it simple to deploy a managed Kubernetes cluster in Azure. AKS reduces the complexity and operational overhead of managing Kubernetes by offloading much of that responsibility to Azure. As a hosted Kubernetes service, Azure handles critical tasks like health monitoring and maintenance for you.
Apache Mesos is an open-source cluster manager that was developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It “provides efficient resource isolation and sharing across distributed applications, or frameworks”. The software enables resource sharing in a fine-grained manner, improving cluster utilization.
Kubernetes Engine is a managed, production-ready environment for deploying containerized applications. It brings our latest innovations in developer productivity, resource efficiency, automated operations, and open source flexibility to accelerate your time to market. Launched in 2015, Kubernetes Engine builds on the learnings from Google’s experience of running services like Gmail and YouTube in containers for […]
