ZeroVM's Features

  • Small, Light, Fast - ZeroVM is extremely small, lightweight, and fast. An execution environment can start in as little as 5 milliseconds.
  • Secure - ZeroVM security is derived from the Chromium Native Client (NaCl) project and is based on the concept of software fault isolation.
  • Hyper-Scalable - ZeroVM makes it easy to create large clusters of instances, aggregating the compute power of many individual physical servers into a single execution environment.
  • Embeddable - ZeroVM is designed to be embedded into existing storage systems.
  • Functional (Deterministic) - Execution inside a ZeroVM environment is functionally pure or deterministic, meaning that for any given set of inputs ZeroVM will always produce the exact same output.

ZeroVM Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to ZeroVM?
Docker
The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
LXC
LXC is a userspace interface for the Linux kernel containment features. Through a powerful API and simple tools, it lets Linux users easily create and manage system or application containers.
LXD
LXD isn't a rewrite of LXC, in fact it's building on top of LXC to provide a new, better user experience. Under the hood, LXD uses LXC through liblxc and its Go binding to create and manage the containers. It's basically an alternative to LXC's tools and distribution template system with the added features that come from being controllable over the network.
Vagrant Cloud
Vagrant Cloud pairs with Vagrant to enable access, insight and collaboration across teams, as well as to bring exposure to community contributions and development environments.
rkt
Rocket is a cli for running App Containers. The goal of rocket is to be composable, secure, and fast.
