1.2 Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment Components

This section contains information on the components that are used to create Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment.

1.2.1 Container Runtimes

Containers are the fundamental infrastructure to deploy modern cloud applications. Oracle delivers the tools to create and provision Open Container Initiative (OCI)-compliant containers using CRI-O.

CRI-O, an implementation of the Kubernetes CRI (Container Runtime Interface) to enable using Open Container Initiative compatible runtimes, is included with Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment. CRI-O allows you to run either runC or Kata Containers containers directly from Kubernetes, without any unnecessary code or tooling.
