Docker or Kubernetes
Virtualization with Docker or Kubernetes. Both solutions are operating system level virtualization that runs software packages called containers. This type of virtualization of resources is the latest trend for spinning up a web server, website, database, etc. The Docker concept originated on Linux; however, Microsoft has implemented its own concept called Kubernetes that takes the guess work out of resource allocation when deploying a container. The primary difference between them is the Docker environment is designed to run on a single node and Kubernetes is designed to run on a series of nodes. Both of them are great virtualization options with Docker leaning towards small business solutions and Kubernetes leaning towards enterprise solutions; however, a new product called Docker Swarm is on the horizon to give Microsoft a run for its money. Also, we will note both solutions can be ran together.
