New Hyper Open Source Project Allows Developers To Leverage Docker and Xen Virtualization Infrastructure

Docker’s popularity and usefulness in cloud systems architectures is evident, having won over countless developers. Yet, it’s not a replacement for mature, proven and security-hardened virtualization technologies that support many of the world’s largest clouds in production. So, while developers clearly want to take advantage of container technology to easily package applications, they also need a […]

The Bare-Metal Hypervisor as a Platform for Innovation

Innovation does occur, of course.  But often real innovation leverages what already exists to create something which doesn't yet exist.  It may borrow from the known, but it produces something previously unknown.  For example, the industry has been going wild over cloud computing in the past few years, but many of the core cloud computing concept are actually old mainframe...
