Container-based virtualization has emerged as one of the top trends in enterprise IT over the last five years. Containers offer a level of flexibility and efficiency that is lacking in Virtual Machines (VMs), allowing cross platform integration. But in certain and crucial respects, container-based VMs lack the security of a VM running a dedicated operating system.

Information Traffic Jams

With the development of increasingly sophisticated Smart Devices, the speed of data transfer has become a significant challenge for information technology (IT) companies. Transmitting raw or unstructured information in large quantities slows the speed with which a device can respond and carry out its function. Transmission lines become increasingly clogged by millions of users, and yet some data, such as the reaction of a self-driving car to road conditions, is time sensitive, and must be delivered immediately.
