Containers at Facebook

Abstract

At FB, we run containers with Linux, Btrfs and systemd. But how does this approach work at scale, and what is the philosophy behind this approach? In this talk, I will dive into the details of these components, including:

  • Advanced details of btrfs and the benefits of a composable file system on a high-traffic network
  • How we use systemd on the host and inside a container
  • New Linux kernel features such as cgroupv2 and bpf
