kubernetes is an interesting project for container cluster management used alongside Dockers. It essentially provides the management of such Docker containers within a cluster of machines and options to discover which nodes in cluster are the best fit for related workloads. Containers can also learn from each other by passing messages. Thus, facilitating self-managing and self-balancing Docker containers within a cluster or across clusters. The project attempts to make use of Kubernetes across cloud environments. But, the base requirements are on the Google Compute Engine. The project seems quite promising towards enhancing and automation of container management and a further arsenal of Google's immense distributed applications projects for the cloud environment.
