Containeri­zation vs. Virtualization in Cloud Computing

Why world-class enterprises like IBM are using containerization to reduce computational overhead.


Containerization has opened up new frontiers in cloud computing. If you are in the application deployment domain, you should be using containerization technologies, which enable the rapid development of cloud-based and micro-service-based applications.

Request the white paper to learn:

  • Why progress isn't always difficult
  • The difference between containerization and virtualization
  • How to use containers in model-based deployments and benefit from graphical pipeline capabilities
  • How to add security and traceability to containers
  • How Apache Mesos and Docker enable containerization

Process-centric release management is mandatory. Find out why companies like IBM are using containers to simplify application deployments and infrastructure management.


Using containers can simplify many aspects of application delivery. If the assumption that, "if you have root on a container, you have root on the whole box" is a little too simplistic, implementing containerization can add significant complexity to existing security models. Significant work has to be undertaken to avoid the use of ROOT and SUDO in your containers. This can involve extending the remit of your enterprise architects to be ready to design a truly secure environment.
