What is Supergiant? Open Source Infrastructure Autoscaling for Kubernetes. Supergiant is a container management platform built on top of Kubernetes. Supergiant makes it easy to deploy and manage faster, and it reduces hardware expenses. Packing algorithm efficiently matches your overall CPU and RAM needs.

IBM Containers and Supergiant belong to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by IBM Containers are:

  • Managed Kubernetes with simplified cluster management from IBM
  • Cluster isolation choice (virtual - shared or dedicated compute and bare metal)
  • Vulnerability Advisor introspects every layer in each image for known vulnerabilities and configuration weaknesses, as well as live container scanning

On the other hand, Supergiant provides the following key features:

  • Cost Aware Autoscaling Hardware - Supergiant reads container RAM/CPU requests/limits and manages HA hardware nodes to match automatically. Downsizes for most efficient usage.
  • Easy Kubernetes Install - Use Supergiant to deploy Kubernetes on multiple clouds in minutes. Use the Supergiant API to streamline production deployment.
  • Built for Stateful Apps - Developed by the team at Qbox.io for big data. Run stateful, distributed apps and databases in a reliable HA environment.

Supergiant is an open source tool with 668 GitHub stars and 60 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Supergiant's open source repository on GitHub.

      Amazon EC2 Container Service
      Amazon EC2 Container Service lets you launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to query the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, EBS volumes and IAM roles.
      Google Kubernetes Engine
      Container Engine takes care of provisioning and maintaining the underlying virtual machine cluster, scaling your application, and operational logistics like logging, monitoring, and health management.
      Amazon EKS
      Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes clusters.
      AWS Fargate
      AWS Fargate is a technology for Amazon ECS and EKS* that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers.
