Hyper vs IBM Containers: What are the differences?

What is Hyper? On-Demand Container, Per-Second Billing. Hyper.sh is a secure container hosting service. What makes it different from AWS (Amazon Web Services) is that you don't start servers, but start docker images directly from Docker Hub or other registries.

What is IBM Containers? Fully managed Kubernetes Offering by IBM. Managed Kubernetes offering to deliver powerful tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications all while leveraging Services including Watson, Weather, IoT, etc.

Hyper and IBM Containers can be primarily classified as "Containers as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Hyper are:

  • Hyper is able to launch instances in sub-second. Also, Hyper requires the minimal resource footprint: ~12MB mem
  • Hyper is immune from the "shared kernel" problem in container
  • Hyper is hypervisor agnostic

On the other hand, IBM Containers provides the following key features:

  • Managed Kubernetes with simplified cluster management from IBM
  • Cluster isolation choice (virtual - shared or dedicated compute and bare metal)
  • Vulnerability Advisor introspects every layer in each image for known vulnerabilities and configuration weaknesses, as well as live container scanning

          KVM
          KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V).
          Amazon EC2 Container Service
          Amazon EC2 Container Service lets you launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to query the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, EBS volumes and IAM roles.
          Google Kubernetes Engine
          Container Engine takes care of provisioning and maintaining the underlying virtual machine cluster, scaling your application, and operational logistics like logging, monitoring, and health management.
          Amazon EKS
          Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes clusters.
          AWS Fargate
          AWS Fargate is a technology for Amazon ECS and EKS* that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers.
