Want to know about why Podman is a better choice than Docker? Then this episode is for you. Come and listen to Arne Blankerts explain why - in great detail.

Show Notes

In this episode, I had the pleasure of continuing to talk with Arne Blankerts about one of my favourite topics: containers. We talked about his misgivings with Docker, his love of Podman, some of the history of containers and container plumbing in the Linux kernel, how Docker's architecture can lead to security issues, and so much more.

If you're in to containers in any way, or are thinking of getting in to them, this episode is for you!

Some key takeaways are:
  • Podman Compose is almost an equivalent to Docker Compose
  • Podman is virtually a drop-in replacement for Docker
  • Podman doesn't require a daemon and doesn't require root
  • Isolated processes just make sense
  • The kernel can't directly control containers when using Docker
