Openshift Origin - Server Components (Console/Broker/Node)
Origin-server contains the core server components of the OpenShift service released under the OpenShift Origin source project. The components in this repository are sufficient to self host an OpenShift instance -- download a LiveCD image with everything preconfigured or read more about running OpenShift locally on our wiki.
Architecturally OpenShift is split into the following core subsystems:
- Node Hosted applications are run in isolated containers on each node - the system can operate many nodes at any one time.
- Broker Central service exposing a REST API for consumers and coordinating with each node.
- Console Web management console using the REST API to allow users to easily create and manage applications.
- Messaging System Communication pipeline between the broker and each node.
- User Authentication Pluggable authentication for controlling access to the broker
- Domain Name Management Each hosted application receives a unique domain name to simplify SSL termination and deployment
A comprehensive architecture overview can be found on our wiki.
