For those that want a lean Linux subsystem to provide container functionality to be part of a greater container platform, LinuxKit is for you. If you’re not sure where to get started with it, check out this piece by Docker Captain Ajeet Singh Raina.

Plus how the cloud servers as a check and balance for on-premises paradigms.
Confused over the redirection on Github from Docker to Moby? Not sure what this means, or how the two are related? Ajeet Singh Raina compares it to the relationship with Red Hat and Fedora. It’s a pretty perfect analogy to properly frame how the two are linked.
Persistent distributed storage for Docker is the focus of a lot of attention in the enterprise space. Heck, Docker bought Infinit to help them do it internally. But that solution is quite a bit down the road. Right now, Ajeet Raina has a walkthrough of how to accomplish this with Dell EMC’s ScaleIO. Essentially, ScaleIO creates a server-based SAN to function as this storage.
