Intel reckons that's harder to do with Linux containers as “underlying kernel still can be attacked from within the container.” That's bad because it means “all containers on the same host can be compromised, regardless of the intended isolation between them,” making multitennacy risky and therefore unlikely.
The biggest example is CoreOS, a heavily venture-backed startup based in San Francisco that has already gained some early attention as a potential alternative to Docker. The company’s open source project dubbed Rocket has won backing from powerhouses like Google and Intel and others like Red Hat and VMware.
Intel has become the latest vendor to throw its weight behind the push to solve the security woes of containers with the launch of a new technology that promises to address the risks currently standing in the way of widespread production use from the hardware level up. It’s the latest fruit of the internal Clear Linux Project.
Containers are a solution to the problem of how to get software to run reliably when moved from one computing environment to another. This could be from a developer's laptop to a test environment, from a staging environment into production and perhaps from a physical machine in a data center to a virtual machine in a private or public cloud.
