DistroWatch.com: RancherOS

RancherOS

Last Update: 2017-10-26 05:51 UTC


RancherOS is a tiny Linux distribution that runs the entire operating system as Docker containers. This includes system services, such as udev and rsyslog. RancherOS includes only the bare minimum amount of software needed to run Docker. This keeps the binary download of RancherOS very small. Everything else can be pulled in dynamically through Docker.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 67 (174), 6 months: 100 (111), 3 months: 118 (89), 4 weeks: 112 (113), 1 week: 83 (132)

Average visitor rating: 9/10 from 1 review(s).

If you are planning to run your applications in docker, you will quickly realize that you will want as little OS as possible on the systems where you will run docker. RancherOS takes this to a new level by having all of the system services run as docker containers in what is referred to as a system-docker. The install is small and simple.
