Embedded virtualization benefits IoT device manufacturers by providing strong isolation between application services; yet, creating VMs is harder than lumping all of your services into one environment, so virtualization tends to not be used. With the rise of Docker container technology, easily creating repeatable builds of isolated services can achieved. Docker also uses layering to minimize disk space usage for containers that are based on the same underlying layers. It would be nice to leverage a hypervisor's smaller attack surface to gain the stronger isolation guarantees that VMs provide. What if there were a way to create VMs as easily as building a Docker container while still minimizing the disk space required for multiple VMs that share a common base? Come find out how to convert your existing Docker containers into VM images that can be booted under the Xen hypervisor.
