And shift the health and environmental issues to other places?
(I was actually under the impression this acquisition had happened until a few minutes ago)
> in April 2020 Boeing terminated the joint venture deal due to impact of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic on aviation and market uncertainty. Embraer alleges that the financial impact of the Boeing 737 MAX groundings contributed to the demise of the deal
So, the deal was broken before both governments had time to decide if they allowed it.
(I do remember some of Embraer clients canceling orders in 2020. AFAIK, they are still bottlenecked by their manufacturing capacity.)
I think the hardware can help bridging the gap between containers and VMs by enabling userspace processes behave as VMs, which is more or less what QEMU+KVM try to do, except that it still comes with some overheads and less flexibility.
Maybe I am wrong. We can wait for a security professional to comment.
Also, one can achieve similar effects with containers as well, just think AppArmor, capabilities, permissions, etc., all layers of administrative privileges between some untrusted code and the host.
Did you mean Spivak, Michael ?
