Building and deploying containers with meta-virtualization: now & in the future
The meta-virtualization layer has been providing core virtualization and container support to the OpenEmbedded community since 2012.
This talk will cover the diverse set of container runtimes and supporting components that are part of the layer. Support from very small / simple containers is possible, extending all the way to safe / secure VM based container hybrids.
The presentation will start with a brief overview of the container runtime options, and how they map to typical requirements. The supporting components (networking, composition, etc) and how they integrate into larger orchestration frameworks will also be covered.
The talk will then focus on how building an OCI (Open Container Initiative) image directly from meta-virtualization is possible, and how such a container can be deployed/managed using current support.
Finally, upcoming meta-virtualization efforts to enhance container development and deployment will be covered.
