Wei and Penny will introduce current status of multi-arch image in Arm architecture. Some work would prefect some fundamental multi-arch-image-related operations, such as adding variant-matching scheme in pulling multi-arch image. Wei and Penny are working with several communities to offer relevant support, such as docker, containerd, kata-container, etc. In this presentation, they intend to share some knowledge about multi-arch image in Arm architecture, including:
1) The concept and value of variant in different Arm architectures
2) The process of detecting variant info in Linux
3) Failure mode for variant-matching process
4) Handling multi-arch image in platform supporting multiple runtimes
5) Upcoming plans on Arm
They also will run a demo on an Arm server showing:
1) Pulling multi-arch image in Arm64v8 environment
2) Pulling compatible image in Arm32 environment
