Introduction to Container and Kubernetes

In this workshop, we will learn about a lightweight sandbox environment called container mainly designed for cloud clusters. We will learn the architecture of container and the benefits of it compared to the traditional virtual machine. Then we will go through several container frameworks including Docker, Podman and Kubernetes and compare them from many aspects including requirements, architecture, and performance, etc. We will work on a simple exercise to demonstrate how to create a docker container and use the command line tools.
