OpenShift Commons Briefing #57: Fedora Docker Image Builder Service Explained

OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary

In this briefing, Fedora’s Adam Miller gives an excellent introduction to containers and the history of their development in the context of Linux systems then dives deep into the interworkings of the Fedora Project’s recently announced the Fedora Docker Layered Image Build Service.

The Fedora Cloud WG has been the primary maintainers of this project on GitHub. But now the service is available in dist-git as official components of Fedora. From there we will extend an invitation to all Fedora Contributors to maintain Docker Layered Image Containers for official release by the Fedora Project. Currently, this effort is to enable the Fedora Cloud/Atomic Working Group goals of targeting Fedora Atomic Host as a primary deliverable to power the future of Cloud. This is also to enable the Fedora Modularity work be delivered as Containers in the future as Fedora becomes fundamentally more modular in nature.

The Fedora Layered Image Build System is built using a combination of open source projects. The main elements are: Docker, Koji, OpenShift Origin, Atomic Reactor, and OSBS Client.
