Kata charm

This subordinate charm deploys the Kata untrusted container runtime within a running Juju charm model. It is an open source community working to build a secure container runtime with lightweight virtual machines that feel and perform like containers, but provide stronger workload isolation using hardware virtualization technology as a second layer of defense.


The following states are set by this subordinate:

  • endpoint.{relation name}.available

    This state is set when Kata is available for use.

Using the Kata subordinate charm

The Kata subordinate charm is to be used with a principal charm and a container runtime subordinate. To use, we deploy the Kata charm and then relate to a principal and a subordinate container runtime.

For example:

juju deploy cs:~containers/kata
juju add-relation kata kubernetes-worker
juju add-relation kata:untrusted containerd:untrusted

Scale out Usage

This charm will automatically scale out with the principal charm.

You can run an action with the following

juju run-action kata ACTION [parameters] [--wait]
