Kata Containers + podman in RHEL8 Beta
Are you feeling adventurous today? Good, so let’s give a try to some of the coolest upcoming technologies. podman is a tool for managing containers. If you’re familiar with docker, you’ll find it’s CLI quite similar. RHEL8 will include podman as part of the container-tools module. Kata Containers is an OCI Runtime which runs containerized processes inside a VM, using QEMU+KVM. This gives you the versatility of containers, with the isolation of a VM, among other nice features like static resource management and PCI passthru.
