|artifact ||A file of any kind produced during a container build process or associated with the operation of a container. For example, a Helm chart is an artifact that might be stored along with a container. |
|CNCF ||As part of the Linux Foundation, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation provides support, oversight, and direction for open-source, cloud native projects. |
|cosign || |
cosign is a tool that performs container signing, verification, and storage in an OCI registry.
|cosigned || |
cosigned is an image admission controller that validates container images before deploying them.
|cri-o || |
cri-o is an implementation of the Kubernetes Container Runtime Interface (CRI) to enable using OCI compatible runtimes. It is a lightweight alternative to using Docker as the runtime for Kubernetes.
|deduplication ||A storage space saving feature wherein only a single copy of specific content is maintained on disk while many different image manifests may hold references to that same content. |
|digest ||A hashed checksum, such as SHA-256, for verifying the integrity of the downloaded image. |
|Distribution Specification ||The OCI Distribution Specification project defines an API protocol to facilitate and standardize the distribution of content. |
|extensions ||Additional registry features (APIs) that are not a part of the Distribution Specification can be added as Extensions. |
|helm chart ||A helm chart is a package of files that orchestrate the deployment of Kubernetes resources into a Kubernetes cluster. |
|manifest ||An image manifest provides a configuration and set of layers for a single container image for a specific architecture and operating system. |
|node exporter ||A software component that collects hardware and operating system level metrics exposed by the kernel. |
|OCI ||The Open Container Initiative (OCI) is an open governance structure for the express purpose of creating open industry standards around container formats and runtimes. |
|ORAS ||OCI Registry as Storage (ORAS) is a tool for distributing OCI artifacts across OCI registries. |
|prometheus ||Prometheus is a node exporter that exposes a wide variety of hardware- and kernel-related metrics. |
|registry ||A service that stores and distributes container images and artifacts. |
|repository ||A collection of images with the same name, differentiated by tags. |
|skopeo || |
skopeo is a command line utility that performs various operations on container images and image repositories.
|stacker || |
stacker is a standalone tool for building OCI images via a declarative
yaml format. The output of the build process is a container image in an OCI layout.
|tag ||A label applied to an image that distinguishes the image from other images in the same repository. A common example is a version tag. |
|zb ||A benchmarking tool, available as a zot companion binary, for benchmarking a zot registry or any other container image registry that conforms to the OCI Distribution Specification. |
|zli ||A zot companion binary that implements a set of command line commands for interacting with the zot registry server. |
|zui ||A zot companion binary that implements a graphical user interface (GUI) for interacting with the zot registry server. |
|zxp ||A node exporter, available as a zot companion binary, that can be deployed with a minimal zot image in order to scrape metrics from the zot server. |
