We are dedicating the month of August to educating the container community on ways to use rkt, CoreOS’s secure container engine. The momentum with rkt has been great and we can’t thank the community enough for providing feedback, contributions and support as we develop a secure and composable container engine.
We’ll be releasing a screencast regularly for you to learn something new about rkt. Today’s screencast is about using the Kubernetes kubelet inside of rkt. Running the kubelet from a container image is useful to ease upgrades, and give users flexibility to roll forward and back between versions.
This screencast by CoreOS walks through why and how to run the Kubernetes node agent, called the kubelet, inside of a rkt container.
