Containers Definitions

  • A

    Amazon EC2 Container Registry

    Amazon EC2 Container Registry is an AWS product that stores, manages and deploys private images of Docker containers, which are managed clusters of Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances.

  • Amazon EC2 Container Service

    Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) allows AWS cloud users to manage Docker containers, which house groups of virtual servers called clusters.

  • Apache Mesos

    Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that isolates and shares pooled resources from across clusters with applications and frameworks. Mesos is open source and uses schedulers and executors in a master-slave architecture.

  • application containerization (app containerization)

    Application containerization is an OS-level virtualization method used to deploy and run distributed applications without launching an entire virtual machine (VM) for each app.

  • C

    ClusterHQ Flocker

    Management of Docker containers can be facilitated with the use of Flocker software – a framework for moving containers across clusters of servers.

  • container management software

    Container management software is programming that facilitates the administration of software modules deployed in a distributed environment.

  • Containers as a Service (CaaS)

    Containers as a service (CaaS) is a form of container-based virtualization in which container engines, orchestration and the underlying compute resources are delivered to users as a service from a cloud provider.

  • D

    Docker

    Docker is an open source software platform to create, deploy and manage virtualized application containers on a common operating system (OS), with an ecosystem of allied tools.

  • Docker Content Trust

    Docker Content Trust is a security feature for Docker containers that uses cryptographic keys to ensure container images are not comprised.

  • Docker Engine

    Docker Engine is the underlying client-server technology that builds and runs containers using Docker's components and services.

  • Docker Swarm

    Docker Swarm is a clustering and scheduling tool for Docker containers. Orchestration frees containers from a single host for failover, load balancing and other benefits.

  • G

    Google Container Engine (GKE)

    Google Container Engine is a management and orchestration system for Docker containers and container clusters that run within Google's public cloud services. Google Container Engine is based on Kubernetes, Google's open source container management system.

  • L

    Linux Containers Project

    Linux Containers is a project created to provide a distro- and vendor-neutral environment for the development of Linux container technologies.

  • LXD (Linux container hypervisor)

    LXD is an open source project founded by Canonical that aims to provide a hypervisor-like set of tools to manage Linux containers.

  • N

    Nagios

    Nagios is an open source monitoring system for computer systems. It was designed with core components to run on the Linux operating system and can monitor devices running Linux, Windows and Unix OSes.
