    What on earth is this paywall about 24 days ago

    I've been using podman on Fedora for so long, I forgot it wasn't from docker.com.
  2. App Container runtime

  3. Apache Mesos abstracts resources away from machines, enabling fault-tolerant and elastic distributed systems to easily be built and run effectively.

  4. LXC by Linuxcontainers.org is a set of tools, templates, library and language bindings. It's pretty low level, very flexible and covers just about every containment feature supported by the upstream kernel.

    Rocky linux container template about about 1 month ago

    I'm using the 2021-07-31 copy of rocky linux from linuxcontainers.org on proxmox. Currently I have it deployed on 72 unprivileged containers. Most of these are set up with DHCP and a small handful are using static IP's. The static IP ones, are running a PCS cluster, and were converted to static IP's post initial setup.
