  • Kubernetes vs Docker: Understanding Containers in 2021 | 2021-04-19
    In its first iterations, Docker used Linux Containers (LXC) as the runtime backend. As the project evolved, LXC was replaced by containerd, Docker’s own implementation. A modern Docker installation is divided into two services: containerd, responsible for managing containers, and dockerd, which does all the rest.

  • Docker in LXC vs VM | 2021-04-08
    One consideration is hardware utilization/isolation. If you pass through Storage/Network/GPU at the VM level. You can then utilize it with containers (OCI based) and then run it with whatever is appropriate. Remember container deployment and orchestration doesn't mean docker anymore. See things like crun, contained , and K8S.

    Depois do advento do Docker, a Docker, Inc. cedeu sua core engine para Cloud Native Computing Foundation sob o nome de containerd. Você pode ver pela CNCF Landscape que o containerd é uma caixinha em Container Runtime. A evolução da tecnologia não é mais controlada pela Docker, Inc., mas por essa organização que faz parte da Linux Foundation.
