Introduction to Virtual Machines and Containers

May 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

A virtual machine is an isolated operating system environment running on top of the host computer’s original operating system. This hypervisor-based technology enables us to run one or multiple operating systems on the same host computer (e.g. a Linux virtual machine on top of a Windows host computer). However, a virtual machine can be resource-heavy to the host computer. In recent years, the container technology has emerged as a lightweight alternative to the virtual machine, also providing an isolated software…
