Redpak: Ultra light weight container for embedded systems

<p>Choosen by the French Government in the Big Cyber Challenge, Redpak is the new embedded container engine to run programs under heavy ressource constraints within microseconds.</p>
While Linux “name space” provides a good foundation for embedded application isolation, popular containers mostly focus on Linux fragmentation, and none of the Docker, LXC, Snap or Flatpak focus on embedded systems constrains. Everyone understands that installing a software component on millions of cars, on a submarine or in a train is very different from installing a new application on a desktop or a phone. Embedded containers target managed systems that, on one hand require less composability than phone or desktop, on the other hand require a stronger control on package qualification and resources usage. This talk presents how to run containerise programs under heavy resource constrains. It exposes how containers permit to operate multiple flavors of a given toolkit and finally exposes how containers simplify configuration management, security and hierarchical model, SOTA.

<p>Fed up with managing your host OS for your docker environment? Try booting your containers directly from a light-weight initramfs! Flash a USB pendrive with the kernel and initramfs, or netboot it locally or from the internet, configure it from the kernel command line. Bonus: It also supports syncing volumes with S3-compatible cloud storages, making provisioning and back-ups a breeze!</p>

<p>A user reports a bug. Its hardware/kernel/data specific. Is it fixed already? How do we get a debug container to the user to use and get meaningful results back?</p>

<p>Cloud brought many innovations - one of them is inexpensive, scalable and sometimes secure Distributed Storage options. In this presentation we will talk about distributed storage Options modern clouds offers ranging from elastic block devices and object storage to sophisticated transactional data stores. We will discuss the benefits and new architecture options such distibuted storage systems enable as well as the challenges pitfals you need to be aware about.</p>

<p>WebAssembly is a portable binary instruction format that was originally created with the browser as the main execution runtime. However, during the last years, WebAssembly is finding its way also outside of the browser because of the many benefits it provides like portability, security and flexibility. We think WebAssembly can be leveraged by Kubernetes in many ways. This short session will focus on how WebAssembly can be used to write Kubernetes admission policies. We will show an open ...
