Azure Container Startup Time Decreased by New 'Project Teleport'

Virtualization Review | November 21, 2019

Project Teleport was created to decrease the startup time of containers on the Azure cloud platform, being especially useful in serverless environments. It’s headed by Steve Lasker, program manager for Azure Container Registries at Microsoft, who says, "Instancing a custom environment within seconds is one of the many wonders of running containers. Having to wait for the image and its layers to download and decompress the first time is the current price of admission." To lower that price, Project Teleport provides a registry transport protocol enabling container layers to be teleported from the registry directly to a container host.
