Container Management Software
Container Management Software Overview
What is Container Management Software?
In the more traditional virtualization model, the hypervisor creates and runs multiple instances of an operating system so that multiple operating systems can be run on a single physical machine sharing the hardware resources.
The emergence of Docker, an open source container initiative has given a big boost to this category as a whole, as it has achieved broad industry buy-in for the container approach.
Another advantage is that containers sharing a single operating system kernel start-up in a few seconds, instead of the minutes required to start-up a virtual machine. Containers are also very easy to share.
