containerd port to darwin: Toward Running Linux containers on macOS

D.containers
Hajime Tazaki
Running Linux containers (e.g., Docker) on macOS is currently implemented with using Hypervisor.framework (or similar VMM) by hosting a (thin) Linux guest, and users operate it from the host macOS via same command-line interface. We go beyond this complete framework by exploiting library-OS/unikernel idea in a container runtime. We ported containerd to macOS first (*1), which is currently under review, and run Linux applications with Linux Kernel Library (LKL), a library version of Linux kernel, which have no compatibility concerns as LKL is derived from Linux kernel. As a bonus, we benefit from the extensibility of the kernel components of Linux containers (as Kata containers does), while keeping low resource footprint of containers (as Nabla or other unikernels implementations can). Because the containerd port is still undergoing, we aim this talk at giving a broader view the pull request, with why we've been worked on for this direction, how it internally works, what benefit we can obtain, and where we are moving forward. We will also give a simple demonstration of running Linux containers on macOS (on Intel but hopefully on arm64 if it's getting ready). *1 https://github.com/containerd/containerd/pull/4526

BPF is becoming ubiquitous in today's modern container environments and thanks to the fast pace of innovations from Linux kernel developers in the BPF subsystem, cloud native networking software such as Cilium is able to bring these extensions to a mainstream user base for improving throughput, latency and reliability of workloads and services. This talk provides a deep dive on recently added BPF kernel as well as Cilium extensions for Kubernetes environments which significantly reduce ...

Operator SDK is a solid foundation for building robust applications for Kubernetes; one of such applications is the VM import operator (https://github.com/kubevirt/vm-import-operator) allowing Kubernetes administrators to easily import their oVirt-managed virtual machines to KubeVirt. In this talk, the speaker will show how his team used Operator SDK to build the VM import operator and how that operator can be used.

Containers are a central point for the MariaDB buildbot (buildbot.mariadb.org). In fact, almost all our builds run in Docker containers. In this short presentation, I will talk about the container environment used in order to build MariaDB from source both on Linux and Windows. Then, I will present some of the challenges associated with running Windows in a Docker container and finally I will focus on some of the advantages of having a container based continuous integration infrastructure.

Hello, Our solution is developed from scratch using python django we aim to provide easy way and flexible to deploy virtual environment in enterprise , we use lxd as our core hypervisor and we developed a complete solution how to manage all machines and resources utilization with implementing all the lxd features And every thing is packaged one script it will do all the handy work we use NoVnc as Xserver to visualize the desktop monitoring tools grafana and ELK stack

On most POSIX systems including Linux file ownership can only be changed globally, i.e. for all users through the chown*() syscall family. In this talk we will introduce idmapped mounts. Idmapped mounts allow to change the ownership of files under the mounts they appear in.

DBaaS is the fastest growing way to deploy databases. It is fast and convenient and it helps to reduce toil a lot, yet it is typically done using proprietary software and tightly coupled to the cloud vendor. We believe Kubernetes finally allows us to build fully OpenSource DBaaS Solution capable to be deployed anywhere Kubernetes runs - on the Public Cloud or in your private data center. In this presentation, we will describe the most important user requirements and typical problems you would ...
