Cloud computing provides variety of services with the growth of their offerings. Due to efficient services, it faces numerous challenges. It is based on virtualization, which provides users a plethora computing resources by internet without managing any infrastructure of Virtual Machine (VM). With network virtualization, Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) gives isolation among different VMs. But, sometimes the levels of abstraction involved in virtualization have been reducing the workload performance which is also a concern when implementing virtualization to the Cloud computing domain. In this paper, it has been explored how the vendors in cloud environment are using Containers for hosting their applications and also the performance of VM deployments. It also compares VM and Linux Containers with respect to the quality of service, network performance and security evaluation.
