Moby Summit LA alongside Open Source Summit North America

Since the Moby Project introduction at DockerCon 2017 in Austin last April, the Moby Community has been hard at work to further define the Moby project, improve its components (runC, containerd, LinuxKit, InfraKit, SwarmKit, Libnetwork and Notary) and fine processes and clear communication channels. All project maintainers are developing these aspects in the open with the support of the community. Contributors are getting involved on GitHub, giving feedback on the Moby Project Discourse forum and asking questions on Slack. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for the Moby Project components have been formed based on the Kubernetes model for Open Source collaboration. These SIGs ensure a high level of transparency and synchronization between project maintainers and a community of heterogeneous contributors. In addition to these online channels and meetings, the Moby community hosts regular meetups and summits. Check out the videos and slides from the last Continue reading…

Moby Summit June 2017 Recap

On June 19 2017, 90 members of the Moby community gathered at Docker headquarter in San Francisco for the second Moby Summit.  This was an opportunity for the community to discuss the progress and future of the Moby project, two months after it was announced. We started the day with an introduction by Solomon Hykes, and a look at the website redesign: the Moby project website now has a blog, an event calendar, a list of projects, and a community page with links to various community resources. The website code is open source, issues and PRs to make it better are welcome. Then each team gave an update on their progress: Linuxkit, containerd, InfraKit, SwarmKit and LibNetwork, as well as the three new Moby Special Interest Groups, Linuxkit Security, Security Scanning & Notary and Orchestration Security. All these talks have been Continue reading…

Online meetup recap: Introduction to LinuxKit

At DockerCon 2017 we introduced LinuxKit: A toolkit for building secure, lean and portable Linux subsystems. Here are the key principles and motivations behind the project: Secure defaults without compromising usability Everything is replaceable and customizable Immutable infrastructure applied to building Linux distributions Completely stateless, but persistent storage can be attached Easy tooling, with easy iteration Built with containers, for running containers Designed for building and running clustered applications, including but not limited to container orchestration such as Docker or Kubernetes Designed from the experience of building Docker Editions, but redesigned as a general-purpose toolkit Designed to be managed by external tooling, such as Infrakit or similar tools Includes a set of longer-term collaborative projects in various stages of development to innovate on kernel and userspace changes, particularly around security For this Online Meetup, Docker Technical Staff member Rolf Neugebauer gave Continue reading…

Get involved with the Moby Project by attending upcoming Moby Summits!

Last month at DockerCon, we introduced the Moby Project: an open-source project sponsored by Docker to advance the software containerization movement. The idea behind the project is to help the ecosystem take containers mainstream by providing a library of components, a framework for assembling them into custom container-based systems and a place for all container enthusiasts to experiment and exchange ideas. Going forward, Docker will be assembled using Moby, see Moby and Docker or the diagram below for more details. Moby Summit at DockerCon 2017 Knowing that that a good number of maintainers, contributors and advanced Docker users would be attending DockerCon, we decided to organize the first Moby Summit in collaboration with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The summit was a small collaborative event for container hackers who are actively maintaining, contributing or generally involved or interested in the design and Continue reading…

Introducing Moby Project: a new open-source project to advance the software containerization movement

Since Docker democratized software containers four years ago, a whole ecosystem grew around containerization and in this compressed time period it has gone through two distinct phases of growth. In each of these two phases, the model for producing container systems evolved to adapt to the size and needs of the user community as well as the project and the growing contributor ecosystem. The Moby Project is a new open-source project to advance the software containerization movement and help the ecosystem take containers mainstream. It provides a library of components, a framework for assembling them into custom container-based systems and a place for all container enthusiasts to experiment and exchange ideas. Let’s review how we got where we are today. In 2013-2014 pioneers started to use containers and collaborate in a monolithic open source codebase, Docker and few other projects, Continue reading…
