Thank you for your reply, so isolated environments, but when you said cross-platform, do you mean that if I have a container running Nodejs on a Linux VM, I take the same container and run it on a Windows machine?

 

More or less, yes. The idea, given your example, would be that the VM would be inside the container and easily configurable to run on the Windows VM environment.
