2017 – the year of containers! It wasn't? Oops. Maybe next year


Re: Container == process

During the unix.jpgdevelopment of Unix V7 in 1979, the chroot system call was introduced, changing the root directory of a process and its children to a new location in the filesystem. This advance was the beginning process isolation: segregating file access for each process. Chroot was added to BSD in 1982.
