This isolation acts a natural security mechanism, making it difficult for hackers to break into environments and gain control of enterprise applications.
As we build out Docker’s infrastructure plumbing, we are committed to releasing these plumbing components as open source to help the community. Today we’re releasing a new daemon to control runC called: containerd. It’s built for performance and density, and will eventually be built into Docker Engine.
