Docker and the CNCF recently announced the general availability of containerd 1.0, an industry-standard runtime for building container solutions. The containerd 1.0 milestone comes after several months of alpha and beta releases, that allowed the team to implement various performance improvements: creation of a stress testing system, improvements in garbage collection and shim memory usage, etc.

In this online meetup, we look at how containerd works, what are the top features and improvements and how can container system builders integrate with containerd.

Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 700 million times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including eBay, Baidu, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed an active ecosystem, resulting in more than 180,000 “Dockerized” applications, over 40 Docker-related startups and integration partnerships with AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google, IBM, Microsoft, OpenStack, Rackspace, Red Hat and VMware.
