Which statement describes the term containers in virtualization technology?
- a group of VMs with identical OS and applications
- a subsection of a virtualization environment that contains one or more VMs
- a virtual area with multiple independent applications sharing the host OS and hardware
- isolated areas of a virtualization environment, where each area is administered by a customer
Explanation: In a virtualization environment, containers are a specialized “virtual area” where multiple applications can run independently of each other while sharing the same OS and hardware. By sharing the host operating system, most of the software resources are reused, which leads to reduced boot time and optimized operation.
