Scale-Out Apps Definitions

  • A

    Alpine Linux

    Alpine Linux is a small, security-oriented, lightweight Linux distribution based on the musl libc library and BusyBox utilities platform instead of GNU.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • B

    Boot2Docker

    Boot2Docker is a minimalist Linux distribution with the sole purpose to run Docker containers.

  • C

    chaos engineering

    Chaos engineering is the process of testing a distributed system to ensure that the system can withstand unexpected disruptions in function.

  • cloud orchestration (cloud orchestrator)

    Cloud orchestration is the use of programming technology to manage the interconnections and interactions among workloads on public and private cloud infrastructure.

  • 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 (containerization or container-based virtualization)

    Containers are packages that rely on virtual isolation to deploy and run applications that access a shared operating system (OS) kernel without the need for virtual machines (VMs).

  • container image

    A container image is an unchangeable, static file that includes executable code so it can run an isolated process on information technology (IT) infrastructure.

  • Container Linux by CoreOS

    Container Linux by CoreOS, originally named CoreOS Linux, is an open source operating system (OS) that provides the functionality required to deploy and manage applications within containers.

  • container management software

    Container management software is any of a range of products that simplify how an administrator adds or replaces software containers on IT infrastructure, and that facilitate the organization of large numbers of containers.

  • Containers as a Service (CaaS)

    Containers as a service (CaaS) is a cloud service that allows software developers to upload, organize, run, scale, manage and stop containers by using a provider's API calls or a web portal interface.

  • CoreOS rkt

    CoreOS rkt (pronounced rocket) is a containerization engine to run application workloads in isolation from the underlying infrastructure.

  • D

    distributed applications (distributed apps)

    Distributed applications (distributed apps) are applications or software that runs on multiple computers within a network at the same time and can be stored on servers or with cloud computing.
