Hi Young,

I was traveling so not sure if you received a response to your request for a gVisor comparison.

Iโ€™ll bring to your attention a webinar on Sandboxed Containers that Rancher Labs did in February of 2019. He compared different sandboxed container approaches -- Kata, gVisor, IBM Nabla. I found it very informative.

I wrote up my notes from the webinar here in case itโ€™s easier to read my notes than listen to an hour+ long webinar ๐Ÿ˜Š. I also added some comments:


Please let me know if you have additional questions,

Subject: [kata-dev] a couple of questions about Kata


Hi all,

I got a couple of questions:

1. Kata-container provides strong isolation through lightweight VM, I want more details about security perspective.

   Does Kata container have a solution to container threat models? ( ex) container escape, etc. )

2. What is the strength of Kata in comparison to gVisor?
