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
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. It will also touch on the
recently added k3s (lightweight kubernetes) and how it has driven new
development to ease the deployment of frameworks.
Finally, upcoming meta-virtualization efforts to enhance container development
and deployment will be covered.
