Thankfully, two of the biggest names in the industry just announced a partnership that aims to simplify the whole process.
We’ve talked about network virtualization on this blog before, but there was some recent confusion over whether or not that service is different from software-defined networking. It’s not a big difference, but no, they’re not the same. Let’s take a look at what sets them apart.

Virtual containers have incrementally increased the ability of users to create portable, self-contained kernels of information and applications since the technology first appeared in the early 2000s. Now, containers are one of the biggest data trends of the decade — some say at the expense of the virtual machine (VM) technology that preceded them.
