Linux Containers - NextGen Virtualization for Cloud features IBM's Boden Russell.
Want VM agility with near bare metal performance? How about [milli]second provision/stop/start/restart times? Looking to achieve greater VM density on your hardware assets, or provision applications without worry of dependency hell? Look no further than nextgen virtualization with Linux Containers.
In this session we'll look at Linux Container basics; tooling/commoditization, throttling/monitoring, images, security and why containers are poised as "the next VM" in our modern Cloud era. We'll also discuss results exemplifying containers; run at near bare metal speeds, provide greater density potential, allow faster provisioning times, have smaller footprints and are more applicable to "as a Service" realizations. Finally we'll look at some density/performance results from a Cloudy perspective using the OpenStack docker virt driver.
