Docker’s Quest for Simplicity with the Evolution of containerd
On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, we caught up with Docker technical staff member Patrick Chanezon at CloudNativeCon + KubeCon EU. As technology continues to evolve, more devices than ever are being connected to the internet via software. Running that software are applications backed by tools such as Docker’s containerd. As a part of its continued quest for simplicity, Docker began the process of extracting containerd out of the Docker codebase to enable its use with Kubernetes, independent of the rest of the Docker suite. We also discussed how the community’s evolution has and will continue to impact the container ecosystem, and what’s next on containerd’s project roadmap.
