Panel Discussion: Open Container Initiative: What’s Next for Standards and Container Portability? - Moderated by Chris Aniszczyk, OCI

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With recent rapid growth of container-based solutions — including those from almost all major IT vendors, cloud providers and emerging start-ups—the industry needed a standard to support container formats & runtime. Enter the Open Container Initiative (OCI), established to help promote a set of common, minimal open standards & specs around container formats and runtime. Having recently issued its v1.0 release of container runtime and image format specs, OCI has seen early adoption from the AWS, Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes, Mesos communities and more. With this early adoption trend and the impending release of a formal certification program, OCI is bridging the industry closer to standardized container distribution. Hear from OCI experts on how these specs impact the ecosystem; use cases for how they’re implemented across scenarios/ environments, and what’s next for the project.
