Build your next infrastructure with Centaurus

Next generation cloud platform with better resource utilization and reduced management overheads

Centaurus Overview

Centaurus open source project is a cloud infrastructure platform that can be used to build your public or private cloud. It unifies the orchestration, network provisioning and management of cloud compute and network resources at regional scale. It offers the same API experience to provision and manage virtual machines, containers, serverless and other types of cloud resources. Centaurus combines traditional IaaS and PaaS layer into one infrastructure platform that can simplify your cloud management and reduce your management cost.

Centaurus Components



Arktos is a compute cluster management system designed for large scale clouds. It is evolved from Kubernetes to address key challenges of large scale clouds.



Mizar is the high-performance cloud-network powered by eXpress Data Path (XDP) and Geneve protocol for high scale cloud.

Centaurus Features

Powered by Arktos and Mizar, Centaurus provides next generation cloud solutions and enhanced cloud networking.

  • Unified Orchestration

    Natively manages VM, containers, and other types of workloads on demand in a unified manner.

  • Multi-tenant Cloud Platform

    Provides built-in hard multi-tenancy support for strong tenancy isolation and transparent virtual cluster.

  • Large Scale and High Performance

    Addresses key scalability and performance challenges facing super large cloud infrastructure.

  • Hyper-Scale Unified Cloud Network

    Fast provisioning and management of virtual network resources for VMs, containers and other types of workloads. Leverages natural partitioning of cloud networks such as VPC and subnet for large-scale endpoint provisioning and routing capabilities.

  • High Performance Data Plane

    Leverages eXpress Data Path(XDP) and Geneve protocol to forward and route traffic between workloads in a highly performant manner.

  • Cloud Native Networking Management Plane

    Mizar's management plane is built around cloud-native architecture approach using Kubernetes Architecture Framework. It provides support for key characteristics such as scalability, elasticity etc.
