Docker Swarms With New Application Virtualization Technology

Since Docker got its start 18 months ago, the Docker Engine has been the core of the project, providing a container approach for application virtualization. The Docker Engine is now being joined by the Docker Machine for increased container deployment portability, Docker Swarm for clustering and Docker Compose for application assembly services.”We’re moving from a model where an organization runs a few Docker containers on a few hosts to running a large number of containers across many hosts,” Docker CEO Ben Golub explained to eWEEK.

Cloudius Touts Open Source OSv for Container Virtualization Optimization

Cloudius says its open source OSv operating system, which can boot in less than a second, is better for the cloud and container virtualization than Linux, OpenStack and Docker. Would containerized virtualization à la Docker work better if it didn’t depend on the Linux kernel? That’s the question startup Cloudius Systems is asking as it promotes OSv, a competing open source operating system designed specifically for the cloud. (Hint: Its answer is “Yes.”)
