The Valencia players will start to work individually in the sports city of Paternal in the coming days. But the club already works in next phases in order to comply with the LaLiga protocol. And facing the phase in which it is recommended that the team stay focused after training, the black and white entity plans to concentrate the team on the facilities of the Parador de El Saler, on the outskirts of Valencia. Initially, the club considered concentrating on one of the hotels near the sports city of Paterna. but finally it seems that the option you like the most is that of the Parador de El Saler. This complex, which already used Valencia, with Marcelino, in ChristmasIt has its own soccer field, golf course and direct access to the beach on foot. It also hosted the Selection in the World-wide one in 1982. In addition, the team would have its own space, away from other clients, and with external workers “confined” with the team itself.
Containerd actually uses the runC, so it is OCI compliance. Both the OCI and CNCF are run under the Linux Foundation.Docker hopes containerd will be accepted into the CNCF before the CloudNativeCon/KubeCon taking place at the end of the month. Once the containerd moves over to the CNCF project, Docker plans to continue to invest, advance and contribute to the development of the project. “Containerd is at the heart of Docker. We need the project, and we need it to be successful,” said Chanezon. “Giving it to the CNCF will just expand the community that can collaborate on it.” Docker is currently working on implementing the containerd 1.0 roadmap, with a target date of June 2017. The team is working on phase 1 and phase 2 of the roadmap. Phase 1 focuses on defining the gRPC API, and phase 2 involves the design and development of containerd’s execution and storage layers. The full roadmap is available here. Once the project is in the hands of the CNCF, Docker hoopes the community will continue to evolve and graduate the roadmap to 1.0. The next step is to then get containerd adopted by other projects such as Kubernetes. “The future roadmap will be decided by the community,” said Chanezon. Late last year Docker announced it was releasing its core container runtime as a standalone open-source project with the intent to donate the project to a foundation. Today, the company is making good on that promise with the announcement that it has presented a proposal to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Technical Oversight Committee for it to become a CNCF project. The CNCF is an organization focused on advancing cloud native technology and services, and providing a common set of container technologies. According to Patrick Chanezon, member of Docker’s technical staff, the company chose the CNCF because its mission of container-based workloads is aligned with the goals of containerd. In addition, containerd already uses a lot of CNCF projects such as Kubernetes, Prometheus and gRPC. “There is a pretty strong alignment in terms of philosophy and in terms of projects. It just makes sense to donate containerd to the CNCF,” Chanezon said.RELATED CONTENT: Docker spins out Containerd runtimeThis isn’t the first time Docker has donated some of its container components in order for the industry to build on it. In 2015, the company donated its libcontainer now known as runC to the Open Container Initiative (OCI). The Open Container Initiative is designed to develop industry standards for container formats and runtime. RunC was used to build the OCI’s runtime specification. According to Chanezon, the reason Docker decided to donate containerd to CNCF instead of the OCI is because containerd is more of an implementation project rather than a standard. The CCI is more oriented towards specifications while the CNCF is more oriented towards open-source projects.

AT&T violates discrimination ban, says complaintAccording to a formal complaint from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), AT&T is violating the Communications Act’s prohibition against “unjust and unreasonable discrimination.”The complaint allegedly states that AT&T discriminates against poor people by providing faster service in wealthier areas, and speeds as low as 1.5Mbps in low-income areas. “This complaint, brought by Joanne Elkins, Hattie Lanfair, and Rachelle Lee, three African-American, low-income residents of Cleveland, Ohio alleges that AT&T’s offerings of high-speed broadband service violate the Communications Act’s prohibition against unjust and unreasonable discrimination,” the complaint says.Evidence of discrimination are based partly on a study from March, where advocacy groups analyzed FCC data and alleged that “AT&T has systematically discriminated against lower-income Cleveland neighborhoods in its deployment of home Internet and video technologies over the past decade,” according to a report from Arstechnica.
