Of all the different types of virtualisation technology, containers have been regarded either as a cheap way of packing a hosting environment or a curiosity.  Now, however, with the advent of the cloud revolution and the focus on elasticity and density within a lean data centre, containers are coming into their own as the densest and most elastic virtualisation technology for supporting cloud environments.  This talk will cover the principles of containerisation, its similarities and differences from traditional virtualisation technologies, why it achieves higher (3x) densities and far greater elasticity and what's being done to advance it within Linux.
