Kata Containers: An introduction and overview - Graham Whaley, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kata Containers is an open source project that brings the security of hardware virtualization to containers through lightweight VMs, without deteriorating performance. Kata is for the teams who want to keep (or start using) containers, but recognize that traditional containers don't always provide adequate security.
Kata Containers is an OCI compatible runtime, and thus seamlessly plugs into both Docker and Kubernetes, and also therefore Zun. Kata lets teams provision containers on bare metal with the isolation of VMs, and  works in any environment that supports nested virtualization.
We will discuss why Kata exists, what benefits it brings, walk through Kata's architecture and discuss how it integrates with the container ecosystem.
We will cover the current Kata roadmap, and how you, the community, can benefit and get involved. 
What can I expect to learn?
Learn what a VM container runtime is, how it is architected, and what features it can bring to your container solution implementation. See how this is an open source project that you can contribute to and help define and guide its future.
Learn how you can have lightweight VMs seamlessly integrated into your software container solution to bring you the security benefits of hardware backed VMs.
