Libre Solutions is happy to announce that Crun was successfully introduced to Debian.

Crun is a fast and low-memory footprint OCI Container Runtime written in C.

Crun is faster than Runc and has a much lower memory footprint. It requires fewer resources, so it is also possible to set stricter limits on the memory and number of PIDs allowed in the container.

Crun is particularly useful as an alternative OCI runtime for Podman. We are working towards making Podman available in Debian as an official package.
