Abstract

© 2018 IEEE. Advancement of container technology (e.g. Docker, LXC, etc.) transformed the virtualization concept by providing a lightweight alternative to hypervisors. Docker has emerged as the most popular container management tool. Recent research regarding the comparison of container with hypervisor and bare-metal demonstrates that the container can accomplish bare-metal performance in almost all case. However, the current literature lacks an in-depth study on the experimental evaluation for understanding the performance interference between microservices that are hosted within a single or across multiple containers. In this paper, we have presented the experimental study on the performan..
