This blog post compares the advantages and disadvantages of docker containers with VMs and describes why and how we execute docker images inside a QEMU MicroVM. The described approach makes it possible to combine the security of VMs with the existing ecosystem of docker (e.g. images and tools). Afterwards we take a look at ways how we can map features like bind mounts to solutions supported by QEMU and demonstrate this by running the NGINX docker image in QEMU.
