Container & Virtualization

OS-level virtualization is an operating system paradigm in which the kernel allows the existence of multiple isolated user space instances.
Such instances, called containers (LXC, Solaris containers, Docker), Zones (Solaris containers), virtual private servers (OpenVZ), partitions, virtual environments (VEs), virtual kernels (DragonFly BSD), or jails (FreeBSD jail or chroot jail), may look like real computers from the point of view of programs running in them.
