In Podman in Action you will learn how to:

Build and run containers in rootless mode
Develop and manage pods
Use SystemD to oversee a container’s lifecycle
Work with the Podman service via Python
Keep your containers confined using Podman security features
Manage containerized applications on edge devices

Podman in Action shows you how to deploy containerized applications on Linux, Windows, and MacOS systems using Podman. Written by Daniel Walsh, who leads the Red Hat Podman team, this book teaches you how to securely manage the entire application lifecycle without human intervention. You’ll quickly get to grips with Podman’s unique advantages over Docker, and learn how easy it is to migrate your Docker-based infrastructure. It also demonstrates how, with Podman, you can easily convert containerized applications into Kubernetes-based microservices.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology
It’s time to upgrade your container engine! The Podman container manager delivers flexible image layer control, seamless Kubernetes compatibility, and rootless containers that can be created, run, and managed by users without admin rights. Plus, its OCI-compliant support for the Docker API lets you shift existing containers to Podman without breaking your scripts or changing the way you work.

About the Book
Podman in Action introduces the Podman container manager. The easy-to-follow explanations and examples give you a clear view of what containers are, how they work, and how to manage them using Podman’s powerful features. You’ll get a deep look at the Linux components Podman uses and even learn more about Docker along the way. You’ll especially appreciate author Dan Walsh’s unique insights into container security.
