Mirantis Open Source

At Mirantis, we’ve always used open source to drive innovation. We are actively contributing and enjoy being a part of the Cloud Native community.


The Kubernetes platform. Lens is a powerful, streamlined interface for Kubernetes that removes complexity and delivers full situational awareness for anyone who needs to develop, manage, monitor, and troubleshoot cloud native applications across a fleet of clusters in real time.

Zero-friction Kubernetes. A slim, modern, and fresh Kubernetes distribution for any infrastructure, from the datacenter to the edge. Get up and running in minutes, with all batteries included, support for x86-64, ARM64, and ARMv7 architectures, and no host OS dependencies besides the kernel.

The Kubernetes control plane manager. Run and manage Kubernetes cluster control planes as pods within another Kubernetes cluster, delivering unparalleled isolation, scalability, and resource efficiency. Experience how “Kubernetes-in-Kubernetes” simplifies and standardizes multi-cluster management.


Moby is the open source container framework upstream of Mirantis Container Runtime, Docker CE, Docker Desktop, and various open source projects. It unifies a variety of libraries and components into a streamlined and flexible container development and execution experience.


dockershim is CRI compliant, and enables use of the Docker and Mirantis Container Runtime (MCR) with Kubernetes.


libnetwork provides a native Go implementation for connecting containers. It is one of the core components of Docker engine (Moby). The goal of libnetwork is to deliver a robust container network model that provides a consistent programming interface and the required network abstractions for applications.


SwarmKit is a toolkit for orchestrating distributed systems at any scale. It includes primitives for node discovery, raft-based consensus, task scheduling and more.

Alpine Linux is a security-oriented, lightweight Linux distribution based on musl libc and busybox.

OpenStack is a set of software components that provide common services for cloud infrastructure.


Kubernetes, also known as K8s, is an open source system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts. It provides basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of applications. Kubernetes is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

Tungsten Fabric is the open source version of Junipers OpenContrail software defined networking solutions. Mirantis packages Tungsten Fabric and provides full support.

Airship is a set opensource of cloud provisioning tools used to deploy OpenStack onto a Kubernetes substrate using a declarative framework.

Helm is a tool that streamlines installing and managing Kubernetes applications. Think of it like apt/yum/homebrew for Kubernetes.

Integrated into MSR KubeLinter analyzes Kubernetes YAML files and Helm charts, and checks them against a variety of best practices, with a focus on production readiness and security. KubeLinter runs sensible default checks, designed to give you useful information about your Kubernetes YAML files and Helm charts.
