This presentation is heavily based on a demo of a running container which is live migrated around the world while the clients connection will stay alive. The example application used in the demonstration is Xonotic (The Free and Fast Arena Shooter). The server will be running in a runC container which will be live migrated around the world while the client is running locally. On the basis of the migrated container the involved technologies will be explained. This is mainly CRIU (Checkpoint/Restore In Userspace) and migration optimizations to decrease the downtime of migrations over long distances (from one continent to another) and the runC-CRIU integration. Depending on the available network infrastructure the demo will be live or pre-recorded.
