Containers and Checkpoint/Restore MC Accepted into 2019 Linux Plumbers Conference

We are pleased to announce that the Containers and Checkpoint/Restore Microconference has been accepted into the 2019 Linux Plumbers Conference! Even after the success of last year’s Containers Microconference, there’s still more to work on this year.

Last year had a security focus that featured seccomp support and LSM namespacing and stacking, but now the need to look at the next steps and sets of blockers for those needs to be discussed.

Since last year’s Linux Plumbers in Vancouver, binderfs has been accepted into mainline, but more work is needed in order to fully support Android containers.

Another improvement since Vancouver is that shiftfs is now functional and included in Ubuntu, however, more work is required (including changes to VFS) before shiftfs can be accepted into mainline.

CGroup V2 is an ongoing task needing more work, with one topic of particular interest being feature parity with V1.

Additional important discussion topics include:

  • Even better container security
  • New namespaces (time, logging, …)
  • Adoption and improvement of the new mount and pidfd APIs
  • Speeding up container live migration.

Come join us and participate in the discussion on what holds “The Cloud” together.
