Docker, a wrapper around LXC containers, provides an excellent mechanism for low overhead virtualization. Docker allows isolated environments to be created in a single machine without imposing a performance overhead.

As organizations look for lightweight alternatives to using virtual machines, they are seeking a better understanding of Docker’s performance capabilities. This talk presents the results from Docker performance evaluations, starting with a bottom-up approach, comparing Docker against virtual machines and native on key performance indicators using microbenchmarks.

Then performance based on a series of real-world benchmarks will be presented. Attendees will also gain insights into how Docker works and how to set up Docker to fit individual needs.
