Red Hat Looks Beyond Docker for Container Technology

Filed under
Server
Security

While Docker Inc and its eponymous container engine helped to create the modern container approach, Red Hat has multiple efforts of its own that it is now actively developing.

The core component for containers is the runtime engine, which for Docker is the Docker Engine which is now based on the Docker-led containerd project that is hosted at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Red Hat has built its own container engine called CRI-O, which hit its 1.0 release back in October 2017.

For building images, Red Hat has a project called Buildah, which reached its 1.0 milestone on June 6.

Games: Jumpala, NVIDIA and More

  • Unique competitive platformer 'Jumpala' adds new stages and it's a huge amount of fun

    Jumpala is a very unique competitive platform covered here on GOL recently and I've fallen a little in love with the idea. It's challenging and a lot of fun to play with others. With a surprising twist on the whole idea of platforming, you're not running and jumping or doing much fighting. Instead, you're hopping around tiny platforms to turn them your colour and score points when they fall off the screen. It really does get surprisingly intense, especially if you've been frozen or you take a wrong turn and the platforms don't come down in your favour and you get knocked off losing valuable hopping time.

  • NVIDIA have a new Vulkan Beta Driver out for Linux - helping DOOM Eternal on Steam Play

    NVIDIA continue to fix up and improve their Linux drivers, with a brand new Vulkan Beta Driver available today. This is the testing area where NVIDIA put in new features, add in new Vulkan API support like the provisional vendor-neutral Ray Tracing that went in recently and more that eventually make their way into their normal drivers.

  • If you want more gore in the GZDoom and Zandronum engines try the 'Bolognese Gore Mod'

    The Bolognese Gore Mod is another creation by Brutal Doom’s developer, and it’s advertised as a gore enhancement mod for the GZDoom and Zandronum engines. However, apart from making the combat more violent, it also states that "makes enemies smarter and harder, makes gun louder and beefier, and adds epic new boss battles."

  • Prepare your space legs for X4: Split Vendetta and the massive 3.0 free update

    Egosoft continue to polish up their ridiculously massive, incredibly ambitious and rather good looking space sim with the release of X4: Split Vendetta and the massive 3.0 free update. For everyone in the free update there's new storyline, new mission types, French voice-over, new standalone tutorials, new shops, a configurable alert system, new weapons, improved graphics and a huge amount more. Meanwhile X4: Split Vendetta, the paid DLC, adds in a massive expansion to the universe amongst other things like the two new Split family clans.

  • Save money, buy awesome games and support charity in a big Paradox Interactive sale

    Here's another excuse for you to support charity and get some new games, if the Humble Conquer COVID-19 Bundle wasn't enough for you. Paradox Interactive are now running their own big charity sale. Lasting until 5PM UTC on April 3, with all the funds going to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. During this time some of their popular titles are heavily discounted, helping you to stay home and keep everyone around you safe. Nice to see even more developers get in on this and come together.
