Assimilation System Management Suite

The Assimilation Suite discovers systems, services, network connections, configuration and dependencies, IP and MAC addresses. This all goes into a continually updated graph-based configuration management database (CMDB). This is then compared and scored against best practices, services and servers are monitored - all with near-zero configuration - in a way that scales to hundreds of thousands of servers. It also provides visualization tools, APIs for sending alerts to humans and other systems, and a variety of canned reports (queries) to aid in securing and managing systems, hooking into ChatOps, and creating plans for triaging your security issues

CRI-O

CRI-O is an implementation of the Kubernetes CRI (Container Runtime Interface) to enable using OCI (Open Container Initiative) compatible runtimes. It is a lightweight alternative to using Docker as the runtime for kubernetes. It allows Kubernetes to use any OCI-compliant runtime as the container runtime for running pods. Today it supports runc and Kata Containers as the container runtimes but any OCI-conformant runtime can be plugged in principle. CRI-O supports OCI container images and can pull from any container registry. It is a lightweight alternative to using Docker, Moby or rkt as the runtime for Kubernetes.

Docker

Docker uses LXC to create and manage native, sandboxed virtual containers. LXC containers acts like a separate OSes, can install their own packages without affecting anything else, and overall have almost the same flexibility of VMs but without any of the virtualization overhead! Docker adds a ton of features, like an elegant configuration file that automates many things (like port forwarding, disk/directory mounting, networking, etc), a way to create and share readymade images that can be distributed as appliances, etc.
