Containerd graduated within the CNCF

Today containerd graduated within the CNCF to join the ranks of Kubernetes, Prometheus, Envoy, and CoreDNS as a “graduated” project in the CNCF. From Michael Crosby on the Docker blog:

We are happy to announce that as of today, containerd, an industry-standard runtime for building container solutions, graduates within the CNCF.

From Docker’s initial announcement that it was spinning out its core runtime to its donation to the CNCF in March 2017, the containerd project has experienced significant growth and progress over the last two years. The primary goal of Docker’s donation was to foster further innovation in the container ecosystem by providing a core container runtime that could be leveraged by container system vendors and orchestration projects such as Kubernetes, Swarm, etc.

Solomon Hykes says au revoir to Docker

I found this section of the announcement insightful:

Most ideas never materialize. Most software goes unused. Most businesses fail in their first year. Yet here we are, one of the largest open-source communities ever assembled, collectively building software that will run on millions of computers around the world. To know that your work was meaningful, and that a vibrant community of people will continue building upon it…. can any founder ask for anything more?

Best of luck to you, Solomon. We’ll be waiting to see what you hack together next!

Docker Compose and Kubernetes with Docker for desktop

Mike Coleman, Docker Technology Evangelist, writing on the Docker blog:

If you’re running an edge version of Docker on your desktop (Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows Desktop), you can now stand up a single-node Kubernetes cluster with the click of a button.

If you are running Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows, you now have a fully compliant Kubernetes cluster at your fingertips without installing any other tools.
