The many tools that make up the SweetOps approach
Geodesic is an interactive command-line shell which bundles all essential open source cloud orchestration tools needed administer clusters from the command line. The only dependency is that docker is installed. The tools provided include kops, terraform, eb cli, aws cli, etc
A geodesic module is a docker image that extends the geodesic base image and implements functions specific to that stage or account.
A geodesic shell is an invocation of a geodesic module. Said differently, it’s when you run a geodesic docker image and enter into the bash shell.
Kops ships with geodesic and is the easiest way to get a production grade Kubernetes cluster up and running on AWS.
