Red Hat Enterprise Linux Feature Brief
Linux containers combine the flexibility of image-based deployment with lightweight application isolation. Developers choose Linux containers because they simplify application deployment. And many Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) architectures are built around Linux container technology.
This technonlogy brief explains how Red Hat Enterprise Linux® 7 beta implements Linux containers using core technologies like control groups (cgroups) for resource management, namespaces for process isolation, and Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) for security. Read on to learn how this allows secure multi-tenancy and reduces the potential for security exploits.
