Windows Containers 101 — Hysolate

Windows Containers

Container Isolation Technologies

  • Process Isolation — resemble the traditional Linux containers in their lightness and kernel sharing with sibling containers and the host. They’re internally based on new kernel objects called Silos, which is the Microsoft variant for Linux namespaces. With Silos, Windows kernel objects such as files, registry, and pipes can be isolated into separate logical units — containers.
  • Hyper-V Isolation — a new way of running containers, which provides much greater flexibility and compatibility between the container and the host’s kernel. In this mode, each container runs inside a highly optimized virtual machine, getting the entire kernel for itself. It’s possible to run both Windows and Linux inside the virtual machine, letting the developer choose the right OS for his needs, to power his containerized application.
