What are Red Hat's tools for containers?
Linux containers are ideal for deploying microservices-based, cloud-native applications. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 contains and fully supports Red Hat’s lightweight, open standards-based container toolkit. It also provides several new features to simplify and improve container development, management, and security.
Podman is a complete, daemonless container engine for running, managing, and debugging OCl-compliant containers and pods. It is compatible with the Docker command-line interface (CLI) and enables seamless integration with systemd. Switching from Docker to Podman is easy and intuitive—two commands are all you need.Learn more
Podman Desktop enables you to easily work with containers from your local environment. Podman Desktop leverages Podman Engine to provide a lightweight and daemon-less container tool.Learn more
Buildah allows you to build and modify containers without any daemon or docker. It preserves your existing dockerfile workflow while allowing detailed control over image layers, content, and commits. Buildah also minimizes container image size by using tools from the container host rather than adding them to the container image.Learn more
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 also includes Skopeo, a new, comprehensive tool and library for inspecting, signing, and transferring container images. This advanced container sharing allows you to inspect, verify, and sign image manifests. Move container images between registries. Skopeo uses the same code-base library used by Buildah, Podman, and CRI-O, a lightweight container engine for Kubernetes.Learn more
crun is a fully-featured OCI runtime and library for running containers written entirely in C. crun is a fast and lightweight command-line program that doesn’t require an external process for managing OCI containers.learn more
