Deckhouse is an Open Source project, and we enthusiastically encourage anyone that has the desire to contribute to it on GitHub.
To ensure that Deckhouse's development remains vigorous and sustainable, we've offered the platform in two editions:
Community Edition (CE)
Enterprise Edition (EE)
Deckhouse Platform follows the upstream version of Kubernetes, using that as a basis to build all of its features and configurations on.
Deckhouse Platform's basic functions are implemented via two building blocks: shell-operator & addon-operator. Both have been available as Open Source projects since April/May 2019.
Aside from Deckhouse, various vendors (including KubeSphere, Confluent, and Adobe, just to name a few) and DevOps/Kubernetes enthusiasts have adopted these tools to implement instruments of their own.
To sum it up in a nutshell, Deckhouse Platform — as a Kubernetes distribution — is an upstream Kubernetes packed with a whole bunch of modules based on addon-operator.
