Intro: CNCF SIG-Runtime

Rakuten, Renaud Gaubert, Ricardo Aravena at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020

The CNCF SIG Runtime ( collaborates to explore how different runtime infrastructure technologies make it possible to run cloud-native workloads. Discussions are about generalized orchestration, autoscaling, scheduling, execution, container runtimes, sandboxing, virtualization, image packaging/distribution, and specialized architectures. Furthermore, technologies and projects, aimed specifically at Edge, IoT, Batch, Big Data, AI/ML, etc. and incorporating specialized computing elements beyond CPUs, including GPUs, TPUs, FPGAs, ASICs, etc. In this session, we'll provide an overview of the current cloud-native projects and future technologies that fall within the SIG scope. You'll find out how to get involved and contribute, get to know some of the SIG members, and a showcase of the work thus far. The audience will come away with a basic understanding of the SIG and its place in the CNCF ecosystem.
