Garden Project Update [I] - Julz Friedman, IBM

You may know that Cloud Foundry uses Garden as its API for Container Management. But why does CF use Garden rather than Docker? What are the major features and advantages of the Garden Container Engine? How does Garden relate to other container technology you may have heard of (like OCI, runC, CRI-O, containerd and docker)? What security features does Garden give you out-of-the-box that other technologies make you configure?

In addition, this talk will provide an update on some of the major advances in Cloud Foundry Containers over the past year, including:

The Move to RunC - ensuring CF uses the exact same low-level open-standards-based container-runtime as other platforms (e.g. Kubernetes, Docker etc).

Plugin API - allowing extension and experimentation in the platform, including container to container networking and more performance and supported overlayfs-based root filesystem management.

Security Advances - Garden is the most secure container-runtime *out of the box* for multi-tenant deployments. We now take the guess-work out of configuring your container engine for multi-tenant deployments by enabling and configuring the needed features out of the box.

Docker Auth, CPU Maximums, Better DNS Support - lots of new work for operability in large-scale environments, including support for CPU maximums, better DNS auto-configuration and support for username and passwords when pushing Docker Images.
