Conductor will be a web-based container management tool. It aims to make maintaining systems for non-critical projects (senior research, software testing, etc) very easy.
The system is built to support many clients and many container hosts, so it uses a service-oriented architecture. On each container host, an agent listens for container management commands. An API server keeps track of container hosts, and interfaces with the agent on each host. Frontend clients, including the web interface, interface with the API server and a user. Communication is secured between layers using SSL certificates.
