What is Operos?
Operos is an open-source Linux-based operating system that brings hyperscaler-grade infrastructure automation to organizations of all sizes: scheduled containers, software defined networking, and converged storage automatically provisioned on commodity x86 servers.
Operos is built on the best Open Source technologies: Linux kernel, Docker container engine, Kubernetes, Ceph, and Calico. With Operos, all of these technologies work as a cohesive whole. It is easy to install and scale, minimizes operational drudgery, tolerates hardware failure, and provides operational insight. Operos helps you focus on what matters: building, deploying, and running your applications.
Reduce hardware costs
Supercharge your DevOps
Easy to install
The Operos installer transforms a collection of servers into a cohesive, distributed, hyper-converged infrastructure in less than 20 minutes.
Hardware vendor neutral
Operos runs on commodity x86 servers, be it racks of 96 core 4U monsters, or a just few servers in your office.
Always up-to-date Coming soon
Operos ensures that physical hosts are always patched with the latest features and security updates.
Operos offers Kubernetes for orchestrating containers into services and applications, and managing their lifecycle.
The container orchestrator directs the actions of the underlying components – from storage to networking – ensuring the application containers are running and healthy, have access to the resources they need, and can be accessed by clients.Download Operos
Software defined networking
Operos integrates an open-source SDN system that enables cross- container networking and provides a sophisticated application-centric network security policy.
Dashboards and metrics
A curated set of the most essential hardware and OS metrics provides visibility into the state of your cluster.
Open source and open standards
Operos relies on open source components and provides industry standard open interfaces.
Worker node provisioning is fully automatic. Machines boot across the network via PXE and are provided with an OS and all of the other software they need to join the cluster.
Service mesh Coming soon
Operos abstracts the communication between applications. Out of the box, it provides service discovery, end-to-end encryption, intelligent routing, request tracing, and policy-based access control.
Data encryption Coming soon
All storage is automatically and transparently encrypted. Should the disk fall into the wrong hands, your data will be safe.
The distributed data layer automatically takes advantage of any available storage and removes the need for expensive dedicated NAS devices.
Operos integrates Ceph, a proven solution for converged storage. If a container is recreated or restarted on a different host, its volumes are automatically reattached. All data is replicated to prevent data loss in case of hardware failure.Download Operos
Enterprise authentication Coming soon
Operos supports OpenID-Connect, allowing for authentication against a variety of systems of record, such as Active Directory, Google GSuite, GitHub, and others.
Secure control plane Coming soon
Communication between Operos components happens through encrypted TLS channels, managed by a built-in Public Key Infrastructure.
Automatic data replication
All persistent data is automatically replicated to prevent data loss in case of hardware failure.
