Project Atomic, a concept for creating hosts to run Docker containers, was unveiled in April of this year. Rather than producing its own derivative distribution, Atomic is an umbrella project for creating hosts that are optimized for running Docker containers, with an "atomic" update model for the host operating system.
This talk will provide an overview of Atomic along with an in-depth tour of the features offered by an Atomic host, the tools used for creating and updating hosts, and managing Docker containers more effectively. We'll also discuss the implementations of Atomic (Fedora, CentOS, and RHEL) and how to get involved in the Atomic community.
