Phil Estes on Containerd, K8s Deprecation of Dockershim, Container Runtime Architecture The InfoQ Podcast

    • Technology

The container runtime is software that executes containers and manages container images. Today, when many people think about a container runtime, they're likely thinking of Docker. However, Docker is more a set of tools for building, packaging, sharing, and running a container via Docker Daemon that then makes syscalls to another tool like containerd. Containerd, in turn, makes calls to an implementation like runc that lays down the file system for the container and is the executor for the process. Today, on The InfoQ Podcast Wes Reisz talks with Phil Estes, one of the containerd maintainers, about container runtimes. The two discuss the significance (in detail) of the announcement that dockerhsim will soon be deprecated in Kubernetes, the complete container runtime stack, work the Open Container Initiative (OCI) is doing today on a third container spec around registries, and more.
