Integrating Podman and systemd

Perfect Harmony


Podman offers a number of interesting features in the current version. Once you have created a systemd unit file with Podman, there is almost no difference, at least from an administrative point of view, between running a systemd service directly on the host or inside a container. The auto-update feature is also very useful for keeping container images up to date and avoiding the risk of using container instances with old CVEs.
