The ACM chapter at GSU presents
How We Got Here: The Evolution of Virtualization and Containers on Windows and *NIX

Hayden Barnes
Senior Engineering Manager
Rancher Labs

Building on the concepts introduced in CSC 3320 (System-Level Programming) and CSC 4320 (Operating Systems), this talk will examine containers, virtualization, and orchestration, and trends in technology around them:

  *   The evolution of virtual machines beginning with FreeBSD jails.
  *   The development of containers up to containerd.
  *   How containers and virtual machines differ at the kernel level in Linux and Windows, examining how the legacies of UNIX and VMS impact modern computing.
  *   How the lines between containers and virtual machines are blurring with tools such as Windows Subsystem for Linux and Firecracker.
  *   Current and emerging trends in orchestration, such as Kube-Virt.

This talk will lean heavily on operating system history and architectural concepts and how those have influenced some of the hottest technologies and startups today.
