Virtualization – Introduction – (Containerization)-setup-LXC


What does Virtualization mean?

The simple explanation is that you create a virtual version of something that’s generally used for some type of execution. For example, if you were to partition a basic hard drive to create two hard drives, then they would be two ‘virtualized hard drives,’ as the hardware is technically a single hard drive that was digitally separated into two.Virtualization refers to the creation of a virtual resource such as a server, desktop, operating system, file, storage or network.

what are Containers?

Containers are a lightweight virtualization technology.In IT it is all about the need to run an application, not a virtual machine.In the end, it is the application user that has a need.This need is to run the application and no user will ever ask for a virtual machine.That is exactly one of the major design goals of the container technology.

A container is a virtualization method at the OS level.This allows multiple instances of an os to be running on the same kernel, which allows for a more efficient usage of available resources.
