Execute Containers as QEMU MicroVMs

Summary

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.

 and wandered of any one hear has used any similar approaches ...
 
( all though i didnt go to the length of searching the forum for qemu options (yet))
