From containers to traditional services, Habitat gives you a consistent way to build and run your applications in a Cloud Native manner.
Habitat builds containers that are easier to manage, without committing to a specific container format or problem.
Habitat helps you modernize your traditional applications to run on any infrastructure.
Still throwing containers over the wall? Habitat helps you create better containers that both development and operations teams will love.
Habitat simplifies how we build, deploy, and manage our applications.
Habitat makes it easy to build and package your application. Once packaged you can export your application in your preferred container format. For stateful services, you can run this same package on cloud instances, VMs, or bare metal.
Habitat makes it easy to run your application in a container or other compute runtime. The Habitat supervisor provides the minimal level of configuration management required. The supervisor also gives you a gossip based services layer that lets you cluster your application with ease. Containers, Cloud, VMs, or Bare Metal, operate your applications in a consistent manner.
Increase collaboration between teams. Accelerate your time to market.
You can confidently deploy your app at scale and achieve consistent results.
Habitat plan files are easy to write and understand, and provide access to a full-featured build language.
You can create reusable packages for libraries used by your apps.
Each package is aware of all the dependencies it needs for both build and runtime.
Ship immutable, versioned artifacts inside OS-independent containers.
Manage your apps the same way using Habitat’s built-in runtime features.
Reduce the complexity of running clustered applications through service groups.
Run the same package on any platform.
Avoid the pain of deploying multiple apps, with competing dependencies, to the same environment.
Full traceability of what's packaged inside a container.
“…I think we have to pay particular attention to technologies that continuously deliver desired end-states, and across diverse production environments, otherwise we're just speeding up over-the-wall procedures.”
Mark Burgess - Author, creator of CFEngine, Emeritus Professor of Network and System Administration, Oslo University College
“Open source is at the core of the modern application principles powering today’s digital economy. Together, Habitat and DC/OS enable organizations to apply these principles — including autonomy, portability, and scale — to new and legacy applications alike…”

“By making it easy to build applications that run anywhere, the value of hybrid cloud platforms, containers, and their management can be fully realized. Habitat is an important step forward in enabling enterprise IT to fully benefit from the portability and efficiency of cloud computing.”
Jonathan Donaldson - Vice President of Software-Defined Infrastructure, Data Center Group | Intel
“Habitat's application automation combined with our container management platform gives development teams the ability to easily build, deploy, and manage their containerized applications on everything from bare metal to the cloud.”
Sheng Liang - CEO | Rancher Labs
“Open source projects like Habitat embrace the ability to help DevOps teams run their applications in containers everywhere. The community can take advantage of Habitat’s application-centric automation on CoreOS Linux and Tectonic across all their environments…”
Wei Dang - Head of Product | CoreOS
“We are primarily an on-premise, bare-metal infrastructure. Habitat doesn't care if we're deploying our application containers on bare metal or cloud or PaaS. It's non-specific to what you're doing under the hood.”
