Run containers with runc, sysbox or crun
runC is an OCI-compatible runtime for containers. runC also provides all the functions for containers that are necessary for operation with Linux. Container processes can therefore also be easily operated with runC.
runC can be easily integrated into Linux independently of other Docker components.
The container runtime runC, together with “crun”, has been a well-known alternative to running container processes on Linux systems for years and is one of the most popular runtimes for containers at all. Simply put, runC and crun are terminal commands that developers can use to launch and manage their containers even in a Docker/Kubernetes infrastructure.
runC requires Linux or the Windows subsystem for Linux in Windows
To work with runC, a Linux environment is necessary. However, it is also possible for developers and admins to operate via the Windows subsystem for Linux on computers with Windows 10 and 11. This is ideal if, for example, Visual Studio is also used in parallel to develop container apps.
