Container technology becomes popular because of easy customization and quick execution. However, container does not allow kernel customization. For example, DPDK cannot run on Docker, because DPDK requires “igb_uio” and “rte_kni” kernel modules.
BMC: Bare Metal Container solves this problem by a mechanism that offers a suitable kernel for a container image and boots them on a remote physical machine. Although BMC requires the overhead of booting, applications improve their performance and compensate the overhead.
BMC is compatible to Docker and reuses the container images offered by DockerHub. BMC also offers a repository for kernel images. Users select a suitable one for their application. The experiments showed the effect of kernel optimizations for CPU (Hyper Threading), memory (Transparent Huge Pages) and network (Receive Flow Steering) from a low power Atom to a high speed Xeon.
