Hypernetes unites Kubernetes, OpenStack for multitenant container management

Hyper, creator of a VM isolated container engine that’s compatible with Docker, has debuted a project for running multitenant containers at scale.

The Hypernetes project fuses the Hyper container engine with Kubernetes and uses several pieces from OpenStack to create what it describes as “a secure, multitenant Kubernetes distro.”

At the bottom of the Hypernetes stack is bare metal, outfitted with Hyper’s HyperD custom container engine to provision and run containers with VM-level isolation. Kubernetes manages the containers through HyperD’s API set. Other functions are controlled by components taken from OpenStack, including Keystone, for identity management and authentication; Neutron, for network management; and Cinder/Ceph, for storage volume management.
