SAN FRANCISCO, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, RockSolid Labs has officially launched the beta of BitVessel to empower enterprise customers to run containerized workloads securely.
Bit Vessel, is a nextgen legacy-free, type 2 hypervisor. BitVessel was engineered to take advantage of the isolation of virtual machines while also encompassing the deployment benefits of containers. "We kept having customers asking for a solution to run containers in a multi-tenant environment. So, we took a new approach to virtualization, getting rid of legacy devices that are no longer needed for cloud workloads. This approach creates a fast and secure alternative for what people truly need," said Nathan Rockhold, Founder and CEO.
A flaw in the design of containers is that an application running in a single instance can break the operating system (OS) affecting all other containers. With a shared OS, errors in the application, container, or OS can nullify the security of the entire system.
BitVessel separates the execution stack of each application all the way down to the hardware, eliminating the possibility of containers interfering with one another through a shared OS. Essentially, creating a virtual hardware isolated container limiting and preventing exploitations. This provides a strong boundary not available in traditional containers.
About RockSolid Labs
RockSolid Labs was founded in 2015 after realizing that most large-scale workloads are extremely harder than they should be to deploy and manage at scale. Customers are demanding simple solutions to provision, secure, and manage their infrastructure. The tools we have built empower customers to go from new hardware to distributed workloads in less than 30 minutes.
