About this Episode

Tracking and managing registries poses obvious challenges for organizations today. But as containers and Kubernetes enter the fray, the task gets that much more harder, given containers’ porous nature, among things.

Up-and-coming Harbor is one purported solution as an open source cloud native registry for storing and scanning container images for vulnerabilities.

How and why Habor can help address these security concerns for cloud native deployments, as well as how it came to be developed, were among the topics of discussion during a podcast Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack, recently hosted at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2018 in Shanghai. He was joined by Henry Zhang chief architect, cloud native apps, for open source Harbor, and Paul Dul, vice president of product management, cloud native applications, VMware.

“The key thing is the security,” as Harbor, a container image management registry, offers features such as access, control and replication, as well as vulnerability scanning, Zhang said.
