ARM and Hyper Team to Bring Secure Container for IoT, Edge and 5G

Working to demonstrate benefits of runV technologies for container applications

New York, July 03, 2017 - Today, Hyper (HyperHQ Inc.) announced through the  runVproject plans to bring to bring multi-tenancy to container, for IoT, edge compute, and 5G.

The momentum around containers is gaining traction as to package, distributed, and run applications increases. However, as containers share the host kernel, they are not considered as secure as virtual machines (VM) in a multi-tenant environment. To address this problem, a new open-source project,  runV, has been created by Hyper and will feature hypervisor-based runtimes that are equivalent to the already available  runC. runV leverages typical hypervisor technology (KVM, Xen, etc.) to launch container images, instead of Linux Container (Cgroup, Namespace).

runV will be able to launch a Docker (or OCI) image into a micro VM in 100ms, and still keeps the hardware-enforced isolation in traditional virtualization. The unique combination of virtualization and containerization allows runV to bring the best of both worlds:

Isolation Weak, shared kernel Strong, HW-enforced Strong, HW-enforced
Portable Yes No, hypervisor dependent Yes, hypervisor agnostic and portable image
Boot Fast, sub-second Slow, tens of seconds Fast, sub-second
Performance Great OK Good, minimal resource footprint and overhead
Density (instance) 10k+ ~500 ~5k
Immutable Yes, cattle No, pet Yes, cattle
Image Size Small, MBs Big, GBs Small, MBs
Heterogeneous Workload No, kernel depency Yes Yes, Linux/Windows, BYOK
Device Emulationb No Yes Yes

Currently, runV has preliminary support on ARM servers, however with container multi-tenancy developers can expect to see performance optimizations and density improvements. In working together on the runV project, Hyper and ARM aim to demonstrate the benefits of runV and how well suited it is to ARM-based platforms for the next generation of IoT, 5G, and edge computing.
