If everything's running on the same hardware architecture, don't even
bother with virtualisation. Too much overhead for not much benefit
compared to, containers.

Research systemd-nspawn, LXC, FreeBSD jails, Solaris Zones to name a few
to get a sense of what containers are. They are logically the same as
virtualisation in terms of instance separation.
