Comparison of Windows and Linux as Docker Hosts

Wednesday 3:20pm - 3:50pm, CITRENZ Conference (Upstairs 2 (SENZ))

Containerization is a new approach to virtualization in software development and deployment. Docker is the most popular containerization solution and will is used in this research.

The installation methods for both Windows and Linux are examined. Different container types and system compatibilities are compared and presented. Costs of both solutions are indicated. T

he main findings are that the combination of different virtualization solutions can lead to a nested scenario, which is not officially supported and not recommended for production environments.
