In essence, what is Podman?

Podman is a container engine that allows users to run and manage OCI containers on Linux, without the need for a daemon. It can also be used on other operating systems with some adaptations.

How does Podman compare to Docker?

Podman was created to offer an alternative to Docker, with some similarities but also some notable differences. Firstly, Podman doesn't require a daemon process to maintain the connection between the client and the server, which is a key feature of Docker. Instead, Podman is a single main process with containers as child processes. Additionally, Podman is rootless, while Docker needs root privileges due to its architecture. Lastly, Docker aims to be an all-in-one solution for container management, whereas Podman focuses on running containers and uses other specialized tools for building images and image management and distribution, such as Buildah and skopeo, respectively.

Can Podman be used on other operating systems?

Although Podman is a native Linux tool, it can be used on other operating systems, but with some adaptations. For instance, on Windows, it runs using the Windows Subsystem for Linux, and on macOS, it uses a Linux VM.

Podman Feature

Podman is a container engine that provides several features for running and managing containers on Linux. Here are some of its key features:

  • Daemonless architecture: Podman doesn't require a daemon to be running, which makes it a lightweight alternative to other container engines like Docker.
  • Rootless architecture: Podman can be run without requiring root privileges, which improves its security by reducing the attack surface.
  • Pod-based workflows: Podman supports the concept of "pods", which are groups of containers that can be managed together and share network and storage resources.
  • Compatibility with Docker: Podman can run Docker-formatted container images, and it provides a Docker-compatible command-line interface, which makes it easy to switch from Docker to Podman.
  • Flexible container management: Podman provides a range of tools for managing containers, including features like container creation, start/stop/restart, and image management.
  • Integration with Kubernetes: Podman can be used as a drop-in replacement for Docker in Kubernetes environments, which allows users to manage their containers and clusters more easily.

Overall, Podman offers a comprehensive set of features for running and managing containers on Linux, with a focus on flexibility, security, and ease of use.

Setup Debian 11 Official Repository In sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list)

When you install Debian 11 using a DVD, the OS installer sets the DVD as the source for getting packages for your system if you didn't choose to scan for network mirrors. Due to this reason, the system would ask you to insert a DVD if the disc is not present in the DVD drive when you try to install any software.  Also, the packages on DVD may not be the latest release.  So, we need to get the packages from the Internet. Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04' in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press [Enter] The /etc/apt/sources.list file with DVD as a source would look something like below. # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04]/ bullseye contrib main deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04]/ bullseye contrib main deb bullseye-security

Cara Membuat Live USB VMWare ESXi 6.7 di Linux (Debian/CentOS)

VMWare ESXi 6.7 menyediakan satu installer dalam format CDROM ISO. Dalam tutorial kali ini kita akan membuat sebuah live USB dengan menggunakan sistem Linux, misalnya Debian dan CentOS. Untuk keperluan tutorial kali ini silakan pastikan sudah ada download installer ISO ESXi 6.7 dari Siapkan satu USB Flashdisk dengan kapasitas lebih dari 1GB. Format dalam satu partisi dengan tool yang biasa dipakai dalam format partisi FAT32. Misal dengan FDISK: [sourcecode] fdisk /dev/sdX [/sourcecode] format ke FAT32: [sourcecode]mkfs.fvat -F 32 -n USB /dev/sdX1[/sourcecode] selanjutnya, kita buat USB tersebut bootable dengan syslinux. Bagi linuxnya belum ada syslinux, silakan install dulu (apt-get install syslinux atau yum install syslinux).
