Virtual Machines & Containers

Virtual Machines (VM) & Containerization Tools are packaged computing environments that combine various components to create a virtual sandboxed development environment and isolate them from the rest of the system. The main difference between the two is that VMs virtualize an entire machine down to the hardware layers, while containers virtualize only software layers above the operating system.
