[PDF] Interesting research report from IBM comparing performance of docker vs KVM. I would have liked to see Xen instead of KVM. Obviously full virtualization has more overhead than containers, but there are decent trade offs to this in terms of flexibility and security. Docker is getting to be quite flexible though, and has some benefits. I don't know that performance will be the key criteria for picking a side (Containers vs. Virtualization)
