      What is Clair?

      Clair is a container vulnerability analysis service by CoreOS. It provides the list of vulnerabilities that threaten each container and can sends notifications whenever new vulnerabilities that affect existing containers are released.

      What is 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.

      What is Kubernetes?

      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.
