About

Concept

  • Product: Docker
  • Linux Container Engine (LCE)
    • not a virtual machine solution
  • Requires special kernel versions (to run the container)
  • Docker and Red Hat have had incompatible versions of the Linux kernel (hence the collaboration announcement)

Future

Support roadmap (all future tense)

  • (Docker will be supported on …)
    • Fedora => soon
    • OpenShift => subsequently
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) => eventually.
  • Introduction of libvirt for container interface management
  • Remove Docker’s dependency on AuFS
    • Something vague about a “new approach to provisioning” based on device mapper.
  • Harmonize Docker and OpenShift Gears
  • Docker with OpenShift’s cartridge model for application orchestration.
