Intel releases Clear Containers 3.0 with Go language construction
Intel’s Clear Linux has launched a new generation of its containers project
Clear Containers. Debuted as the Clear Containers 3.0, the new version brings support for leveraging code used for namespace-based containers and improves integration in the container ecosystem.
The most significant change in Clear Containers 3.0 is its Go language build. Intel’s Clear Linux team has finally decided to switch from C language to Go. The new Clear Containers version also comes with a new agent based on the libcontainer library. Users can use the library to apply policies and filters such as SELinux and Seccomp within the Clear Container guest mode.
In addition to the major improvements to
Clear Containers, Intel has upgraded CC-runtime that now includes compatibility with the OCI runtime specification and Docker engine. Users can also run the platform using Kubernetes through CRI-O. This new development enables users to run both trusted and untrusted workloads in a Kubernetes cluster on bare metal.
Clear Containers 3.0 can be downloaded from its GitHub repository.
