Container registries are becoming an important source of software distribution.
Why package content in a container image?
A container image includes an assorted collection of software - often hundreds of software components. This format facilitates use of the software, because a complete set of the needed components are delivered as a single unit.
In this talk we look into how to ship content regardless of how it is packaged (rpm, python, ansible roles) in a container image and build the image with just one single tool - Pulp3.
With Pulp3 you will be able to take advantage of software distribution using the container first strategy :
- Containerize your application: build and run application in a container;
- Build execution environment images - which provide security features such as isolated execution and integrity of applications;
- Cache the content - allow container images to build without relying on external infrastructure by caching(or permanently storing) the application and dependencies.
