When Containers and Virtualization Do — and Don’t — Work Together, Jeremy Eder, Red Hat

It’s a common misconception that Containers and virtualization are the same thing, and that Containers are somehow replacing virtual machines. While there are definitely similarities, there are some big differences. For example:

• Containers share system resources for access to compute, networking and storage, but unlike virtual machines, Containers on the same host share the same OS kernel
• Compared with virtual machines, Containers are lightweight, meaning they can be more dynamic and more quickly deployed
• VMs can stand alone, making them more secure than Containers

Rather than replacing VM, Containers complement them; virtual machines deliver compute resources, while Containers aid application deployment and management.

In this session, Red Hat’s Jeremy Eder will discuss the ways in which Containers and virtualization compare, contrast and complement each other.
