Virtualization Technology News and Information
Webinar: Containers, Microservices & Why They Matter

Containers are not new. In fact, their conceptual lineage dates back to the 1970s and chroot jail in UNIX, wherein an application’s processes and dependencies were isolated from the rest of the system.

In 2014, the genesis of Docker catapulted containers back into the spotlight, as a prospective and seemingly inevitable replacement for their heavier cousins, virtual machines. Since Docker made its first headline, numerous production-ready alternatives have surfaced for consideration. Similar to how virtualization abstracts the operating system away from the hardware, containerization abstracts the application away from the operating system. This concept unlocks a world of new methods for quickly developing, deploying, and delivering applications. Containers are orders of magnitude smaller than VMs, bear a fraction of the memory overhead, and can be provisioned in a matter of seconds instead of minutes.

As organizations experiment and eventually transition to technologies such as containers and microservices, a new set of challenges will arise.
