Hello Containers!

Look at different types of containers.

For a long time, the big web-scale players, like Google, have been using container technologies to address the shortcomings of the VM model.

In the container model, the container is roughly analogous to the VM. A major difference between the two is that containers do not require their own full-blown OS. In fact, all containers on a single host share the host’s OS. This frees up huge amounts of system resources such as CPU, RAM, and storage. It also reduces potential licensing costs and reduces the overhead of OS patching and other maintenance. Net result: savings on time, resource, and capital fronts.

Containers are also fast to start and ultra-portable. Moving container workloads from your laptop to the cloud and then to VMs or bare metal in your data center is a breeze.
