runC, a container runtime that implements their specification and serves as a basis for other higher-level tools. runC was first released in July 2015 as version 0.0.1 and it is included in RHEL 8.0 (2019) as a Docker replacement.
runC-like container runtime shares a single kernel instance across all containers in contrast to Clear Containers.
