Hypervisors vs. Lightweight Virtualization: A Performance Comparison

  title={Hypervisors vs. Lightweight Virtualization: A Performance Comparison},
  author={Roberto Morabito and Jimmy Kj{\"a}llman and Miika Komu},
  journal={2015 IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering},
Virtualization of operating systems provides a common way to run different services in the cloud. Recently, the lightweight virtualization technologies claim to offer superior performance. In this paper, we present a detailed performance comparison of traditional hypervisor based virtualization and new lightweight solutions. In our measurements, we use several benchmarks tools in order to understand the strengths, weaknesses, and anomalies introduced by these different platforms in terms of… CONTINUE READING
