I’m obviously an advocate of Oracle technology. At the same time, I’m a big fan and user of Amazon Web Services. Love ‘em both. But I do think that their different approaches to providing cloud services could be a difference-maker.
In July 2013, David Strauss wrote a very detailed comparison of Containers versus VMs for the Linux Journal. Rather than plagiarizing or rewriting, I’ll just boil it down: in today’s world, containers are require less overhead than VMs, scale better, are lower cost and are easier to use.
As always, comments and concerns about my sanity are welcome.
