    The rise in popularity of containers showed the need for an open image standard. As a result, Docker Inc and CoreOS established the Open Container Initiative (OCI) in 2015, with the mission of producing vendor-neutral formats. The result of this effort was the creation of two standards:

    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.

    If you are scared of switching to different set of tools, because you would have to learn to work with different CLI, different API or in general different concepts, then that won't be a problem. Choosing any of the tools shown in this article can be completely seamless as they all (including Docker) adhere to same specification under OCI, which is short for Open Container Initiative. This initiative contains specifications for container runtime, container distribution and container images, which covers all the features needed for working with containers.
