Looking for equivalent of Solaris containers/zones in RHEL7 Linux

Hi, I come from a legacy Solaris background with lots of experience with Solaris Containers/zones that we use for network and process isolation from each other.

Currently we have a RHEL7 Linux VM running on VMWare, but we would like to segment that VM with some form of containers and achieve similar user/process isolation that we had in Solaris, including a separate network IP address for each zone. The goal is to run a non-standard Linux complied application in an isolated run-time instance, there are no known application container images out there.

So I wanted to get people's opinions on how best to achieve this type of container goal? With LXC, Docker, Kubernetes/Docker, something I haven't heard of?

Some time ago i would have added OpenVZ to the list, which is a para-virtualisation solution (basically a sort-of chroot environment, quite like a Solaris zone), but i as far as i know the future of it is (at least for an outsider like me) unclear at the moment. One of the sites i know of that are using it plan to switch over to Docker or may have already done so.

As far as i have seen it in action it looked like a rather mature and good solution and it was very ressource-friendly too.

I hope this helps.

Linux and UNIX

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and libraries. Popular free open source Linux distributions include Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. Commercial Linux distributions include Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Linux may be freely modified and redistributed. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any purpose.
Unix (trademarked as the UNIX certification mark) is a very mature family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that evolved from the original AT&T Unix. Unix development starting in the 1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others. Unix was first targeted for the Bell System and AT&T licensed Unix to outside parties. In the 1970s time period, this lead to a variety of for-profit as well as not-for-profit Unix variants.
In the early days, this included the University of California, Berkeley (BSD), Microsoft (Xenix), IBM (AIX), and Sun Microsystems (Solaris). In the early 1990s, AT&T sold their Unix rights to Novell. In 1995 Novell sold their Unix business to the Santa Cruz Operation (SCO). The UNIX trademark was passed to The Open Group, a "neutral" industry consortium. The Open Group promoted the use of the UNIX trademark for certified operating systems that comply with the Single UNIX Specification (SUS). In 2014 Apple's macOS became the Unix version with the largest global install base and macOS remains the largest Unix-user base today.
