Boston Linux Meeting reminder, tomorrow, Wednesday, January 18, 2017 - Red Hat OCID and Container Security

When: January 18, 2017 7PM (6:30PM for Q&A)
Topic: Red Hat OCID and Container Security
Moderator: Daniel J Walsh , Lead SELinux Engineer , Red Hat Software

Location: MIT Building E-51, Room 315


Summary:
Red Hat's new OCID container system, an alternative to Docker

Abstract:
OCID (CRI-O) is a container runtime to be used with the Kubernetes
Kublet. Specifically, it implements the Kubelet Container Runtime
Interface (CRI) using OCI conformant runtimes. The goal of the OCID is
to optimize running of containers in production, via Kubernetes and
OpenShift.

At a high level, we expect the scope of OCID:

Support multiple image formats including the existing Docker image format
Support for multiple means to download images including trust & image
verification
Container image management (managing image layers, overlay filesystems, etc)
Container process lifecycle management
Monitoring and logging required to satisfy the CRI
Resource isolation as required by the CRI

Second part of the talk will cover Container Security. We will cover all
parts of container security from the importance of the kernel, to where
you should run your containers, container separation and what you should
run inside

Red Hat's OCID is a Docker Alternative, But Not a Fork :

Boston Linux Meeting reminder Wednesday, December 21, 2016 - Microsoft and Linux... Better Together

When: December 21, 2016 7PM (6:30PM for Q&A)
Topic: Microsoft and Linux... Better Together
Moderator: Dan Stolts , Chief Technology Strategist and Technical
Evangelist , Microsoft

Location: MIT Building E-51, Room 315


Summary:
A deep dive into Linux capabilities and integrations with the Microsoft
Azure Cloud

Abstract:
Join us for this very special look at the Microsoft Linux Story. Dan
Stolts (ITProGuru) will teach us about Microsoft joining the Linux
Foundation, how this changes Microsoft internally as well in the open
source community.

We will also dive into the Microsoft, Docker, GitHub and other
Linux/open source communities to understand the buzz. This is not death
by PowerPoint.

We will take a deep dive into Linux capabilities and integrations with
the Microsoft Azure Cloud. We will also dive into running Docker
containers on Linux and how the same EXACT commands are run in the new
Windows Containers.

Everything we talk about is new so this is a must attend event!
