Overheard – JeOS and VM sprawl

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

“If you are feeling the pangs associated with VM sprawl, I strongly suggest a healthy slug of JeOS each morning and once again in the afternoon to clear your system of the painful bloating that is brought on by virtualizing the general purpose OS.”

Billy Marshall Is JeOS a Tonic for VM Sprawl?

JeOS is an acronym for “just enough operating system.”  It’s pretty much what it sounds like and it’s handy for building virtual appliances.  You include just the parts of the operating system that are required to support a particular application. The idea is to make the appliance smaller and more stable than it would be if it was running under a full-sized general purpose operating system.  It’s pronounced “juice.”
