When reading about virtualization, it's often easy to get lost in the masses of possible meanings given to the word by various sources. At AnandTech IT, we've been trying to cut a clear path, attempting to provide our readers with a complete overview of what each technology entails so they are always able to make the right choices for the right situations. Previous articles included overviews of both hypervisor-based virtualization and application virtualization. Following that trend, we now present you with container-based OS virtualization, providing an alternative solution - one that's quite regularly overlooked, despite its merits. We hope it gives you a clear overview of the possibilities this technology offers, as we go in-depth into what makes it tick.
