VM as containers, VMware & Windows Server 2016

Interesting presentation about "virtual machines as containers" with VMware.
By using quick "snapshots" VMs can effectively behaves as containers,
not only with Linux but also with other OSs, including DOS :)

Windows Server 2016 also comes with "Hyper-V containers" in addition to "Windows containers".

Exploding the Linux Container Host @ InfoQ
"Project Bonneville, how to create a shared Linux kernel for privileged containers, running containers without Linux, and VMware's dynamic resource constraints of a container host."

Windows Containers @ MSDN
"Windows Containers include two different container types, or runtimes.

Windows Server Containers – provide application isolation through process and namespace isolation technology. A Windows Server container shares a kernel with the container host and all containers running on the host.

Hyper-V Containers – expand on the isolation provided by Windows Server Containers by running each container in a highly optimized virtual machine. In this configuration the kernel of the container host is not shared with the Hyper-V Containers."
