Cloud Foundry Lattice
Lattice is an open source project for running containerized workloads on a cluster. A Lattice cluster is comprised of a number of Lattice Cells (VMs that run containers) and a ‘Brain’ that monitors the Cells.
Lattice includes built-in http load-balancing, a cluster scheduler, log aggregation with log streaming and health management.
Lattice containers are described as long-running processes or temporary tasks. Lattice includes support for Linux Containers expressed either as Docker Images or by composing applications as binary code on top of a root file system. Lattice’s container pluggability will enable other backends such as Windows or Rocket in the future.
All this functionality leverages components of Cloud Foundry. The new parts in Lattice are the CLI to interact with the component APIs and the installers.
