Today the Open Container Initiative (OCI) announced the formation of the open container Image Format Spec project. The goal will be to create container image format specification that allows containers to created, verified, signed, named and distributed.
Industry leaders are collaborating to enable users to package their application as a standard image, then run it in any container environment of their choice, such as Amazon ECS, Docker, Kubernetes or rkt. With the development of the new industry-backed specification for container images, both our customers will benefit from a common standard that is easily pluggable and widely deployable.
Univa is proud to be a member of the OCI as we believe standards are incredibly important to our enterprise customers. They ensure interoperability and protect our customers’ technology investments. We are excited about participating in the OCI Image Format Spec and collaborating with the strong team of project maintainers including CoreOS, Docker, Google, Microsoft and Red Hat.
