Unleashing the Power of the Container Registry

Containers are one of the driving forces supporting many modern cloud native applications, and thanks to its ease of distribution within container registries, container images have become one of the most popular packaging formats in use. Registries have become the backbone for anyone making use of containers as they play a role in not only the development, but more importantly, the deployment of containers. However, we have only scratched the surface of what container registries can provide.

Approaches defined within the Open Container Initiative (OCI) and implementations, such as the ORAS project, have enabled additional content types, like Helm charts and image signatures, to be stored within OCI compliant registries. But, this is just the beginning of the possible integrations OCI based registries can provide.

In this session, attendees will learn how container registries have evolved from serving only container images to enabling the distribution of varying content types and the opportunities that they have provided for managing content within OCI registries.

Specifically, attendees will:
  • Learn how container registries have evolved to support additional content types beyond container images.
  • Review common artifact types stored in container registries.
  • Comprehend the format and structure of content stored in container registries.
  • See how container registries can serve any content to a consumer based on attributes within the OCI manifest.
  • Understand the potential integrations and opportunities provided by these capabilities.
