Containers allow us to deploy, ship and run the same application everywhere in a fast and distributed fashion. They are a foundational technology for the cloud where they define a brave new virtualized world for users, developers and administrators. With containers usage rising, the cloud ecosystem is more and more fragmented. Cloud builders need to choose between legacy, secure, long term running virtual machines and new, fast and easy to deploy containers.

Clear Containers close that gap by providing hardware virtualized containers. With containers actually running within virtual machines, Clear Containers combine container flexibility with hardware isolation. Here we will present how we managed to drastically reduce virtual machine boot times and memory footprint in order to reach container customers expectations for server density and application sub 50 ms startup time. We will also show how this technology flawlessly integrates with the main container runtimes for Linux: Docker and Rkt.
