What is bare-metal coding? Bare-metal programming is a term for programming that operates without various layers of abstraction or, as some experts describe it, “without an operating system supporting it.” Bare-metal programming interacts with a system at the hardware level, taking into account the specific build of the hardware.
What is bare-metal provisioning? Bare-metal provisioning is the process of installing an operating system (OS) or Type 1 hypervisor directly on a computer’s hardware.
Do containers run on VMs? Containers and VMs each have their uses–in fact, many deployments of containers use VMs as the host operating system rather than running directly on the hardware, especially when running containers in the cloud. For an overview of containers, see Windows and containers.
Is Docker better than VM? Though Docker and virtual machines have their advantages over hardware devices, Docker is the more efficient of the two in terms of resource utilization. If two organizations were completely identical and running the same hardware, then the company using Docker would be able to sustain more applications.
