On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, we met up with CoreOS CTO Brandon Philips at CloudNativeCon + KubeCon EU to learn more about the future of rkt, its security-minded container engine, since being adopted into the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. We also discussed rkt’s Kubernetes-styled architecture and how it relates to the overall container ecosystem, and the progression of containers through the years to get to where we are today.
