Get access to the gVisor playground with one click

Are you looking to learn and experiment with Kubernetes and gVisor in a safe and interactive environment? 

Look no further! With our playground, you’ll have access to a fully-functional Kubernetes cluster with gVisor enabled. No more wasting hours trying to set up your own local environment. Instead, you can jump right into learning and experimentation in just a matter of minutes.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes (also known as K8s) is an open source container orchestration platform. It automates the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. 

What is gVisor? 

gVisor is an open source container sandbox.

The goal of gVisor is to provide strong isolation and security for containers, while still allowing them to access the host resources they need to function. To achieve this, gVisor creates a virtualized environment for each container, known as a sandbox. Each sandbox contains an application kernel that implements the system interfaces normally provided by the host kernel. 

Note: The host kernel is the core of the host operating system. It provides a number of system interfaces that allow applications to access various resources and perform certain actions. These interfaces include things like system calls, device drivers, and networking interfaces.

This way gVisor is able to minimize the risk of a container escape exploit, which is a type of attack that allows an attacker to gain access to the host operating system through a compromised container. 

gVisor is a useful tool for organizations looking to secure their containerized environments.

Kubernetes & gVisor

gVisor simplifies the process of working with existing container tooling by including runsc, an Open Container Initiative (OCI) compliant runtime. runsc seamlessly integrates with Kubernetes, making it easy to operate sandboxed containers.

Playground Features

Our playground comes with a single-node Kubernetes cluster, set up with gVisor. 

Playground Notes

Note that you can use the playground for 1 hour. If required, you can extend the usage by 15 minutes by clicking on the icon next to the timer icon.
