    Phoronix: Intel's Clear Containers Leads To OpenStack Kata Containers

    Kata Containers is the latest tech in the container space and is an effort hosted by the OpenStack Foundation in conjunction with many participating organizations. The underlying tech for Kata Containers originated from the Intel / Clear Linux Clear Containers project...

    So, is this like SnapApps, Flatpak, Docker, NixOS, Appimage, and the likes?...

        So, is this like VMs?
        What's the point of using virtualization tecnology? Containers are isolated processes by the kernel not VMs anyway.

            If you have to boot up a new kernel instance in the VM to run the application this is not a containerized application it's an app that run on a guest os inside a VM infrastracture. A VM it's not like a container in anyway.

              VMs to look like and to take over most workflow of a docker container(uses docker images), orchestrated by Kubernetes -> you can run kata (trusted) and docker (untrusted) container in parallel.

                I think they have a very cut down kernel with maybe custom hacks to make it simpler in their infrastructure, and a severely reduced OS in the VM, so they have VMs with performance characteristics of containers.

                That's the only way it makes some kind of sense.
