Kata Containers, the lightweight, fast booting, open-source VM, is now
available as a Snap from the Snap Store. According to the Ubuntu blog post, "Kata Containers are
compatible with the OCI specification for Docker and CRI for Kubernetes which
means they can be managed like a traditional container. Its agnostic design
allows Kata Containers to run on multiple architectures like amd64, ppc64 and
aarch64 with different hypervisors including QEMU."
