What are Linux Containers?

Linux Containers are operating-system-level virtualization. A container is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings. This allows the application to run quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.

  • More computing workload onto the same server
  • Parity between dev and prod is increased
  • Development and testing also become less complicated.
  • Application Installation and Configuration is code
  • Fast to deploy. Fast to rollback
  • Micro-Service Architecture
  • Efficient resource consumption
  • Containers are cost effective solution
