Kata and gVisor: A Quantitative Comparison - Xu Wang, hyper.sh

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In the past year, hyper.sh+intel released Kata Containers, and Google released gVisor. The two projects shared many features:

- both aim to work with kubernetes CRI seamlessly;
- both could be treated as secure container runtimes;
- both introduce some hypervisor technologies to improving isolation.

On the other hand, the two projects have many differences. Kata Containers is a more general solution and could work with existing accelerating technologies, while gVisor provide better flexibility, which means the user could scale up/down a running container easily.

In this session, the speakers will introduce both projects in detail, and make the quantitive comparison between them -- how much footprint/performance costs are introduced by the different methods of isolation; which perform better in standard benchmarks and lifetime workload, etc.
