Podman is one of the new features introduced in Red Hat Enterprise Linux(RHEL 7.6) Beta.
Podman allows us to run all the docker cli commands .
The major difference between Podman and Docker is that docker runs daemons behind the scenes but there are no deamons running for Podman. It has only a single command that takes care of the Docker deployment process.
Now, lets start by installing podman on the machine. There are two things that needs to be taken care of when installing the podman.
First, you need to enable the extras repo. Extras repo can be enabled using the below command :
$ su -
subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-extras-beta-rpms
After you have enabled the extras repo you need to install the podman. So, for installing the podman you need to run the below command:
yum -y install podman
One of the benefits using podman is that we can use podman can be integrated with the system services such as systemd.
