MetaHub - Dynamic OCI Registry Proxy

Announcement: qnib.org

The MetaHub project is meta-data registry, which serves images filtered via login so that a machine gets the image that fits the specifics of the host the image is going to run on.

That could be picking an image that not only fits the CPU Architecture (x86-64, ppcle, arm) but is optimized for the microarchitecture of the host (Broadwell, Skylake, ...). And it does not stop there - any host specific attribute can be use: Accelerators, network, configuration or the full depth of gcc options.

Example

A machine that logs in with the user qnib-type1 will get a Broadwell image, qnib-type2 serves a Skylake optimized image.

$ docker login -u qnib-type1 -p qnib-type1 metahub.qnib.org
$ docker run metahub.qnib.org/qnib/bench && docker run -ti --rm metahub.qnib.org/qnib/bench

It does that by filtering the manifest list and only present the image that fits the demanded features.

$cat manifest.yml
image: docker.io/qnib/bench
manifests:
  -
    image: docker.io/qnib/plain-featuretest:cpu-skylake
    platform:
      architecture: amd64
      os: linux
      features:
        - cpu:skylake
  -
    image: docker.io/qnib/plain-featuretest:cpu-broadwell
    platform:
      architecture: amd64
      os: linux
      features:
        - cpu:broadwell

You can’t perform that action at this time.
