In regards to performance, the cost of Linux containers (Docker) is negligible because it is really just an abstraction on top of kernel/device namespacing. There’s a great IBM writeup going over all the specifics & including specific benchmarks here -$File/rc25482.pdf

The main cost is hard drive. We’re looking about 2.5 GiB + database size per build, as opposed to the relatively small footprint of a standard Odoo deploy. While we could theoretically strip the base system down to probably under 2 gigs, there will still always be the cost of having the system included in the build.

That said, this hard drive penalty comes with a big gain - builds are truly isolated in terms of OS and Python dependencies, providing a more true to life picture of how modules will operate in the wild using what we specify in the readable source.
