PiCluster is a simple way to manage Docker containers on multiple hosts. I created this because I found Docker Swarm not that good and Kubernetes was too difficult to install currently on ARM. PiCluster will only build and run images from Dockerfile's on the host specified in the config file. This software will work on regular x86 hardware also and is not tied to ARM.
- Move containers to different hosts in the cluster
- Container Load Balancer
- Run commands in parallel across Nodes
- Heartbeat for services
- Easily build and orchestrate Docker images across nodes
- Web interface
- CLI interface
- Monitor host metrics (Disk, CPU, Memory)
- HTTP interface
- Virtual Networking via Swarm
- Virtual IP Manager
- Rsyslog Analytics
- Built-in web terminal to easily run commands on nodes
- Integrate the Kibana dashboard into PiCluster
- Integrates with Elasticsearch to store the PiCluster logs and host monitoring metrics .
- Automatic container failover to different nodes
- Pull container images from a registry
- Upload Dockerfile archives to the entire cluster
- Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS)
apt-get install openssl git node docker pq curl
pacman -S openssl git node docker pq curl

Try PiCluster in Docker
We included a compose file to evaluate PiCluster easily on your laptop. Simply Install Docker on your laptop and do the following:
cd picluster docker-compose up -d
Finally, in your web browser go to http://127.0.0.1:3003
