Containers Vs. VMs: performance variations

Containers Vs. VMs: performance variations

Virtual containers have incrementally increased the ability of users to create portable, self-contained kernels of information and applications since the technology first appeared in the early 2000s. Now, containers are one of the biggest data trends of the decade — some say at the expense of the virtual machine (VM) technology that preceded them.

Microsoft Edge browser becomes more secure

Microsoft Edge browser becomes more secure

Microsoft’s Edge browser has enhanced its security features with new virtualization protocols.

Although it’s a much smaller scale than what we are used to seeing out of Microsoft’s virtualization strategies, this is a gigantic boost to Windows’s native internet browser.

Cloud-based application virtualization

Cloud-based application virtualization

It currently services over 330,000 organizations, and by teaming up with Microsoft to expand its cloud-based software delivery, the company hopes to give that number a boost. While the news of this partnership does mean winding down one popular software as a service, a newer — and hopefully better — one is on its way.
