IaaS private clouds provide an attractive environment for scientific applications. However, the performance is a challenge, as additional abstraction layers imposed by the virtualization can cause overheads and bottlenecks. This paper contributes to a performance analysis of applications with dedicated and shared resources environments under private cloud conditions, deployed with container (LXC) or kernel-based (KVM) instances. We selected five benchmarks from PARSEC suite. In the experimental results, identify a performance pattern of behavior among the applications was hard. For a set of multi-threading applications, the KVM-based cloud instances achieved better performance, however, in the other set of applications, the LXC-based cloud instances performed better.
