Cloud Coalescence: The Collision of Virtualization and Containers - Brian Proffitt, oVirt

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Until recently, cloud computing has been about virtualization. Virtual machines are at the heart of the cloud, bringing cost savings and flexibility to organizations on a massive scale. But there's a new weather system blowing in: containers. Instead of emulating an entire operating system, containers can run just enough code to efficiently run an application. Containers and virtualization can be construed as competing technologies in the cloud, but in reality they are different parts of the same cloud ecosystem. From oVirt to RDO to Project Atomic, open source projects are leading this new innovation that will transform cloud computing as we know it.
