  • Running Onload in a Virtual Machine (VM) or Docker Container means the Onload accelerated application benefits from the inherent isolation policy of the virtualized environment.
  • There is minimal degradation of latency and throughput performance. Near native network I/O performance is possible because there is direct hardware access (no hardware emulation) with the guest kernel (and virtualization platform hypervisor) being bypassed.
  • Multiple containers/virtual machines can co-exist on the same host and all are isolated from each other.
