gVisor, Kata Containers, Firecracker, Docker: Who is Who in the Container Space

Webinar Recording:
gVisor, Kata Containers, Firecracker, Docker: Who is Who in the Container Space?

The slides of this webinar are available here.

Containers* have revolutionized the IT landscape and for a long time. Docker seemed to be the default whenever people were talking about containerization technologies**. But traditional container technologies might not be suitable if strong isolation guarantees are required. So recently new technologies such as gVisor, Kata Container, or firecracker have been introduced to close the gap between the strong isolation of virtual machines and the small resource footprint of containers.

In this talk, we will provide an overview of the different containerization technologies, discuss their tradeoffs, and provide guidance for different use cases.

* We will define the term container in more detailed during the talk
** and yes we will also cover some of the pre-docker container space!
