Until recently, running `docker build` against Dockerfile had been the only way to build container images.

However, lots of opensource software are being proposed as successors/alternatives to `docker build`:
- BuildKit (Moby Project / Docker)
- img (Jessica Frazelle / Microsoft)
- Buildah (Project Atomic / Red Hat)
- umoci & Orca (SUSE)
- Bazel (Google)
- OpenShift S2I (Red Hat)

Akihiro Suda compares these new tools' advantages and disadvantages.
His evaluation basis would include but not be limited to:
- Performance (Cache efficiency, Concurrency, Distributed Execution)
- Secret management, e.g. SSH and AWS keys
- Support for non-Dockerfile
- Non-root execution
- UI & UX
- Governance of the community

He also proposes a unified interface for using these tools with Kubernetes in a vendor-neutral way.
