Think VM migration is cool? Wait until you see container migration in action! In this session we will first discuss runC (https://runc.io/) - the Open Container Initiative's (OCI) reference container runtime, and its relationship to the Docker runtime. Secondly we'll look at some of its features and capabilities, including features like checkpoint/restore which have not been exposed (yet) in the Docker runtime. Finally, we'll demonstrate live migration of container workloads between OpenStack Nova hosts.
- Quick refresh on container technology and intersection with OpenStack projects
- The Open Container Initiative (OIC) and specifically, runC, the reference implementation of a container execution engine using the OCI spec and format
- How runC and checkpoint/restore functionality can be used to enable live container migration across OpenStack Nova hosts
