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.

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…
