Dell Technologies Proof of Concept: Dell Enterprise SONiC – 3rd Party Container Mgmt

Fall 2023

Dell Enterprise SONiC supports the installation, management, and upgrade of third-party Docker containers. The third-party container (TPC) feature allows you to install third-party components as containers that are loaded and integrated as part of the SONiC system without having to rebuild the Enterprise SONiC image. The TPC feature provides a mechanism to install and manage custom Docker containers in the SONiC operating system. The TPC feature supports the following operations in a third-party container life cycle:
● Download and install a Docker image.
● Pull the Docker image from the docker registry.
● Create and run a Docker container.
● Store docker-specific data in its own file system or the host-mounted file system.
● Save a Docker snapshot as an image to be exported elsewhere.
● Stop or uninstall a Docker container.
● Remove a Docker image.
● Upgrade an existing Docker container.
