I made a presentation of BMC at HPCC (IEEE Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications) 2016.
The title is "Bare-Metal Container --- Direct execution of a container image on a remote machine with an optimized kernel ---".
The slide is opened at slideshare.
Original HP: http://www.itri.aist.go.jp/cpc/research/bmc/
BMC is resemble to VMware's "vSphere Integrated Containers" and Joyent's "Triton", but
BMC is designed to customize Linux kernel for an application in a Docker image.
VMware's "vSphere Integrated Containers" http://www.vmware.com/products/vsphere/integrated-containers.html
Jyoent's "Triton" https://www.joyent.com/triton
BMC runs a Docker image with a customized kernel on a bare-metal remote machine using remote machine management technology (WakeupOnLan, Intel AMT, or IPMI) and network bootloader "iPXE".
BMC can solve the container's (Docker's) problem which is caused by Linux kernel.
If you are interesed in, please try.

> We released BMC (Bare-Metal Container) which runs a container (Docker)
> image with a suitable Linux kernel on a remote physical machine.
> BMC allows to change the kernel and its settings for the container
> (Docker) image. As a result, the application extracts the full
> performance of the physical machine.
> A pre-built BMC image using DIND (Docker in Docker) technique is
> offered. Users can avid burdensome setting up (ex. Apache CGI, etc).
> We strongly recommend new users to try this pre-built version.

> The detail of BMC will be presented at IEEE HPCC (High Performance
