Container runtime solutions enable container usage by providing APIs and abstracting technical components. They facilitate the execution of container lifecycle commands against each container instance. Runtime environments couple the configuration files with the actual files that are necessary to execute the application. Companies use these tools to launch applications and manage the container application lifecycles. With container runtimes specifications, companies can specify how file systems are unpacked, built, and configured. They allow developers to reduce system overhead, share resources, and enforce access capabilities.
To qualify for inclusion in the Container Runtime category, a product must:
Apache Edgent is a programming model and micro-kernel style runtime that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones).
Apache ServiceMix is a flexible, open-source integration container that unifies the features and functionality of Apache ActiveMQ, Camel, CXF, and Karaf into a powerful runtime platform you can use to build your own integrations solutions. It provides a complete, enterprise ready ESB.
Robin Cloud Platform (RCP) is a solution for hosting all the applications in an enterprise on a shared platform created out of commodity or cloud components. RCP can be deployed on bare metal, or on virtual machines, allowing organizations to rapidly deploy multiple instances of their data-driven applications on-premise or on the cloud without creating additional copies of data.
Springpath is the pioneer in hyperconvergence software, turning standard servers of choice into a single pool of compute and storage resources. The Springpath Data Platform eliminates the need for network storage and intuitively integrates into existing management tools to maximize operational efficiency.
