Containerization seems like the buzzword these days and large company across the global are eagerly adopting container technology.
Containerization is an alternative or companion to virtualization. It involves encapsulating or packaging up software code and all its dependencies so that it can run uniformly and consistently on any infrastructure. The technology is quickly maturing, resulting in measurable benefits for developers and operations teams as well as overall software infrastructure. We at Kenfil has been a AWS and Microsoft certified partner and has been delivering classes over the past years on AWS & Azure cloud infrastructure and Kubernetes management technologies. Apart from skill enablement, we also offer kick-start services and support to help you take that first step and please check out our services packages that is designed to accelerate your containerization journey !
WHY CONTAINER ?
When developers build and package their applications into containers and provide them to IT to run on a standardized platform, this reduces the overall effort to deploy applications and can streamline the whole dev and test cycle. This also increases collaboration and efficiency between dev and operations teams to ship apps faster.
Containers provide a standardized format for packaging and holding all the components necessary to run the desired application. This solves the typical problem of “It works on my machine” and allows for portability between OS platforms and between clouds. Any time a container is deployed anywhere, it executes in a consistent environment that remains unchanged from one deployment to another. You now have a consistent format, from dev box to production.
Since containers do not have the overhead typical of VMs, including separate OS instances, many more containers can be supported on the same infrastructure. The lightweight nature of containers means they can be started and stopped quickly, unlocking rapid scale-up and scale-down scenarios.
