Linux Container Primitives: cgroups, namespaces, and more! (LinuxFest Northwest 2019)

Linux Container Primitives: cgroups, namespaces, and more! (LinuxFest Northwest 2019)

In this session, we’ll explore the different Linux primitives that are commonly used in implementing container runtimes. We’ll learn about the Linux primitives that underlie container runtimes like Docker, including cgroups, namespaces, and union filesystems. We’ll see how Docker uses these primitives, and how the OCI standard makes it possible to customize how your containers run. We’ll also discuss alternative container runtimes like CRI-O, rkt, and systemd-nspawn and what makes them different. This will be an interactive session with a live demo and open questions.
