Containers and Containers-as-a-Service

cloud inovasi

The buzz about Docker containers, get the ability to separate an application, microservices, and their configuration from the underlying OS is very attractive. Orchestration layers built on top of containers such as Docker Swarm and Google’s Kubernetes make it easier to manage and scale clusters of containers.

The three major cloud providers, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, and Indonesia’s Cloud Inovasi (http://cloudinovasi.id/)  have all added CaaS (Containers-as-a-Service), allowing any Docker container to run on their platform, filling a void between IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) that requires a lot more system administration and configuration, and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) that is typically very limiting in terms of language support and libraries.
