Abstract

Containers are everywhere in modern cloud workloads, but that doesn’t mean everything's roses! Container isolation imposes a de-facto additional complexity layer, i.e. a virtual machine, and running unprivileged containers is not a simple task. How do containers affect the ergonomics of the JVM? What are the options and limitations when it comes to observing JVMs running in containers? ...  

This session will discuss some of the recent evolutions that will address those concerns (rootless containers, Kata containers, cgroupsV2, etc.) and will look in parallel at how OpenJDK is evolving to cope with some of those changes and most importantly, what it all means for Java developers!
