Is it really a containers vs. VM world? We don't think so, more details on the subject from James Bulpin in this blog post: http://xenserver.org/blog/entry/is-it-really-containers-vs-vms.html
There are some in the Docker and container world that believe that there is some kind of competition between Docker and hypervisors; they would have us believe that containers render VMs, and therefore hypervisors, redundant...

Are cloud-native apps the ultimate hypervisor killer? We think not! Here's why: http://thenewstack.io/hypervisors-container-era/
The modern trend towards cloud-native apps seems to be set to kill hypervisors with a long slow death. Paradoxically, it is the massive success of hypervisors and infrastructure-as-a-service during the last 15 years that enabled this trend. Hypervisors introduced the tools that allow sysadmins and developers to deploy one (virtual) server per application efficiently. It …

📖 Working on an #opensource project & experiencing problems with your code review process? Read this article:
https://www.linux.com/blog/how-xen-project-streamlined-code-review-analyzing-mailing-list-data
The Xen Project’s code contributions have grown more than 10 percent each year. Although growth is extremely healthy to the project as a whole, it has its growing pains. For the Xen Project, it led to issues with its code review process: maintainers believed that their review workload increased and a number of vendors claimed that it took significantly longer for contributions to be upstreamed, compared to the past.

Have you heard of hypervisor-based containers? Stefano Stabellini provides a great overview of this technology and why you should pay attention via The New Stack: http://thenewstack.io/hypervisors-container-era/

Paradoxically, it is the massive success of hypervisors and infrastructure-as-a-service during the last 15 years that enabled this trend.
