Containers are a lightweight, portable, virtualised, software-defined environment.
Docker containers wrap a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything that can be installed on a server.
This guarantees that the software will always run the same, regardless of its environment.
The sooner your developers can test their ideas, the sooner they’ll be able to verify whether they work or not.
The advantages of containerization include being able to spin up identical environments in seconds so you can minimise these important feedback cycles, eliminate discrepancies between environments and enable your developers to innovate.
This minimizes non-differentiating effort expended on manually spinning up environments, eliminating errors, and means that the people you pay to create value with software are doing exactly that!
We partner with enterprise organisations on their journey towards container-based application delivery, deployment and orchestration:
Aligning stakeholders on where and how containers should be used
Helping understand the implications for enterprise architecture
Collaboratively developing a governance model around the use of containers
Understanding the best practices for successful and secure operational deployment
