Docker vs Podman

Docker vs Podman

Daemon

Podman has no daemon, which can run under normal user.

Docker has daemon dockerd running as root.

Unix socket

Docker uses Unix socket /var/run/docker.sock

All the REST API commands are implemented using this socket.

For example,


`docker version` command is implemented via following API.

curl --unix-socket /var/run/docker.sock http:/v2/version
