4 Tools to Scale Docker Container in Production Environment

So you hear about the awesome technology that Docker offer and want to get this awesome solution run in your production environment without struggling in tight terminal.

This 4 tools to scale docker container in production environment you can try:

1. Google Kubernetes

Kubernetes is Google’s solution for managing a cluster of containers. Currently it only supports Docker for containers. But in the future it’ll support other container solutions as well.

Kubernetes provides a declarative API for managing clusters while giving us a lot of flexibility. You only need to tell it what to do and it’ll do the hard work for you. It has built-in support for microservices, load balancing, monitoring and so on. You can deploy any service you like into Kubernetes.

2. Red Hat Project Atomic

Project Atomic facilitates application-centric IT architecture by providing an end-to-end solution for deploying containerized applications quickly and reliably, with atomic update and rollback for application and host alike.

The core of Project Atomic is the Project Atomic Host. This is a lightweight operating system that has been assembled out of upstream RPM content. It is designed to run applications in Docker containers. Hosts based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Fedora, and CentOS (testing) are available for use.

  1. CoreOS

CoreOS is an open source lightweight operating system based on the Linux kernel and designed for providing infrastructure to clustered deployments, while focusing on automation, ease of applications deployment, security, reliability and scalability. As an operating system, CoreOS provides only the minimal functionality required for deploying applications inside software containers, together with built-in mechanisms for service discovery and configuration sharing.

CoreOS is a fork of Chrome OS, by the means of using its software development kit (SDK) freely available through Chromium OS as a base while adding new functionality and customizing it to support hardware used in servers. As of July 2014, CoreOS is actively developed, primarily by Alex Polvi, Brandon Philips and Michael Marineau, with its major features (other than etcd and fleetd) available as a stable release.
