Atomic Host

Based on proven technology either from Red Hat Enterprise Linux or the CentOS and Fedora projects, Atomic Host is a lightweight, immutable platform, designed with the sole purpose of running containerized applications.

To balance the need between long-term stability and new features, we are providing different releases of Atomic Host for you to choose from.

Get Started

Atomic App and Nulecule

With Atomic App, use existing containers as building blocks for your new application product or project. Using existing containers to provide core infrastructure components lets you focus more on building the stuff that matters and less time packaging and setting up the common plumbing required.

Define your Atomic Apps with the Nulecule specification to compose and distribute complex applications.

Introducing Commissaire

What the heck is commissaire? I’m glad you asked! Commissaire is a new component of Project Atomic that aims to simplify life for cluster administrators. It provides a simple, script-friendly REST interface for cluster-wide maintenance operations like system upgrades and rolling restarts.

Instead of starting from scratch, Commissaire utilizes common technologies such as Ansible for communicating with cluster nodes, and interfaces with OpenShift and Kubernetes.

Using the Atomic CLI to Scan Virtual Machines

Recently on the Red Hat Developers blog, I wrote about the re-architecture of the atomic vulnerability scan feature. The primary function of atomic scan is to detect vulnerabilities in your images and containers using a plug-in enabled architecture.

Building upon that concept, we added an additional feature to atomic scan where you can now pass a chroot to it for the purposes of scanning. One immediate benefit from this change was that we can now use the same scanner for our images and containers to scan a virtual machine (VM) that has been mounted onto the host’s filesystem.

In this blog, I will show you how to scan a live VM with atomic scan.

App Development on OpenShift using ADB

The Atomic Developer Bundle (ADB) is a prepackaged development environment filled production-grade pre-configured tools that also include OpenShift origin. Using ADB app-developers can easily start building and developing their application on OpenShift platform.

In this blog post, we are going to learn step by step to create an application on OpenShift platform and deploy. Before we proceed any further, I highly recommend you to go through prerequisites guide. ADB provide a custom Vagrantfile to setup and provision OpenShift platform.

Working with Docker LVM Plugin

Recently Docker introduced a volume command (docker volume –help for more information) to allow users to create a logical volume and then bind-mount it inside the container at container creation/runtime. You can achieve this by:


This will create a logical volume foobar mounted at filesystem location /var/lib/docker/volumes.

Now, you can bind mount the foobar volume into the /run directory inside the container.
