Intenet of Things (IoT) applications often involve deployment of gateways at the network edge for integrating physical devices, pre-processing sensor data, and synchronizing it with the cloud. The deployment, configuration, and maintenance of the software running on the gateways in large-scale deployments is known to be challenging. In this work, we analyze the deployment requirements of IoT gateways and evaluate containerized deployment with linux containers as a potential approach addressing them. We perform several synthetic and application benchmarks providing an insight in the performance overhead introduced by linux containers and how they affect typical applications running on IoT gateways.
