Compare Docker vs. Podman for container management
Are you using Docker for container management? If so, you may want to reconsider. Docker and Podman offer similar capabilities when it comes to managing containers, but Docker's security vulnerabilities could make Podman more appealing for certain system administrators.
Docker has become the de facto standard for many IT administrators and does have the lion's share of developer interest today. Yet, Podman offers admins some security advantages over basic Docker due to its ability to run as a nonprivileged user and without a daemon.
Docker and Podman both offer many of the same features, such as their support for Open Container Initiative's (OCI) runtime and image specifications, as well as their ability to map commands to create and manage containers. Yet, there are several differences between Docker and Podman, including security concerns and reliance on daemon programs.
