CoreOS Adds Intel Clear Container Technology in Rocket Containers

CoreOS is moving forward with its development of the Rocket (rkt) container technology, thanks to some help from Intel. The latest rkt 0.8 release became generally available on Aug. 19, integrating Intel’s Clear Containers technology, providing hardware-assisted container isolation and security.

In a video interview with eWEEK, Brandon Philips, CTO of CoreOS, details the latest development in rkt security and why Docker will still be a key part of CoreOS for some time.
