03 September,2020 by Rambler

Databases on containers is going mainstream. A great way to get comfortable  with Containers and exploring the difference between a more traditional DBMS to OS relationship is to install Podman on Linux , download some images and start learning.

yum install podman
yum install podman containernetworking-plugins (optional command)
yum install podman-docker (optional command)
