  • Application-level (Sandbox)
  • Environment-level (Container), means there is only one kernel and this kernel or some user-space software provides containers to run multiple applications in
  • OS-level (Hypervisor), means there are multiple kernels running virtualized
    • microkernel-type hypervisors do not contain device drivers, these have to be provided by one of the virtualized systems (e.g. Xen, dom0)
    • monolithic-type hypervisors do contain their own device drivers (e.g. Kernel-based Virtual Machine)
