What is Makisu?

Uber's core infrastructure team developed a pipeline that quickly and reliably generates Dockerfiles and builds application code into Docker images for Apache Mesos and Kubernetes-based container ecosystems. Giving back to the growing stack of microservice technologies, we open sourced its core component, Makisu, to enable other organizations to leverage the same benefits for their own architectures (more here:
Makisu is a tool in the Container Tools category of a tech stack.

Makisu Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Makisu?
A tool to build container images from a Dockerfile, inside a container or Kubernetes cluster. kaniko doesn't depend on a Docker daemon and executes each command within a Dockerfile completely in userspace. This enables building container images in environments that can't easily or securely run a Docker daemon, such as a standard Kubernetes cluster.
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
Docker Compose
With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
Docker Swarm
Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
