Modernize Business Critical Applications
Container technology has taken the development world by storm, allowing developers the ability to collaborate and develop applications with a higher level of portability and efficiency than ever before.
Seamless Work Between On-Premise Data Centers and The Cloud
Container cloud computing offers an alternative method for virtualization, in which a single operating system on a host can run many different applications from the cloud. By wrapping a piece of software in a complete file system containing everything needed to run on a server – it guarantees the software will run regardless of the environment. Containers are the perfect solutions for businesses who want to move applications between data centers and cloud environments.
Fewer Resources Required
Unlike virtual machines, containers do not own an operating system. By sharing the operating system of the container host, containers can be only tens of megabytes in size compared to several gigabytes in virtual machines. This significant difference means that a single server can host far more containers than virtual machines, helping your business cut down hardware requirements and costs related to power and cooling.
Improved Operational Efficiency
Containers allow developers to spin up new instances, free of constraints and tooling conflicts. Breaking down internal silos, developers can also collaborate with system admins by sharing updates, linking and testing against the application. With containers, your developers can identify issues and make changes with minimum disruption to production as in traditional software models. These attributes make containers attractive to both business and technology-focused companies.
Our engineers recommend a separate security approach to containers to account for all threats in the development cycle and security protocol. Ask how you can sign up for a container proof of concept.
