Data Edit

A container is a single opaque file, meaning that no one can see what files or folders are inside the container until the container is decrypted.

Technology Edit

A container is

in essence, a very light weight virtual machine whose resources (memory, disk and network) can be very flexibly shared with a host computer or other containers. A container provides some of the isolation properties of an independent computer or a full virtual machine, but a container can be launched in a fraction of a second on commodity hardware. A container will generally require significantly fewer computing and storage resources than a full virtual machine.[1]
