Developing and running a backward compatible container registry at scale
2020-03-28, 16:20–16:50, Room 1

Container registries are a vital piece of the cloud native infrastructure—they’re necessary for deploying containers with Kubernetes. However, to most, they are simply a black box into and out of which container images flow. But they’re much more than a storage space—they’re an essential part of deployment security, automation, and development workflows.

This talk will peel back the curtain on how container registries work by discussing the architecture of Quay, the only major container registry not based on the Docker Distribution project. Join Quay maintainers Joseph Schorr and Jimmy Zelinskie for a discussion of the roles and capabilities of container registries, and to find out how to become involved in the newly open-sourced project.
