Clair vs Dumb-init: What are the differences?

Developers describe Clair as "Open Source Vulnerability Analysis for your Containers". Clair is a container vulnerability analysis service by CoreOS. It provides the list of vulnerabilities that threaten each container and can sends notifications whenever new vulnerabilities that affect existing containers are released. On the other hand, Dumb-init is detailed as "A minimal init system for Linux containers, by Yelp". dumb-init runs as PID 1, acting like a simple init system. It launches a single process and then proxies all received signals to a session rooted at that child process. Since your actual process is no longer PID 1, when it receives signals from dumb-init, the default signal handlers will be applied, and your process will behave as you would expect. If your process dies, dumb-init will also die, taking care to clean up any other processes that might still remain.

Clair and Dumb-init belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

Clair and Dumb-init are both open source tools. Clair with 5.41K GitHub stars and 696 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Dumb-init with 3.83K GitHub stars and 212 GitHub forks.

            Iris
            The fastest web framework for Go.
            Kubernetes
            Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
            Docker Compose
            With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
            Rancher
            Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
            Docker Swarm
            Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
