Containers works, time to move into operational roles
Containers are slowly making their way into the real world enterprise workloads. Using containers in production or as workloads are huge developments for containers with large enterprises now doing real work with Docker and CoreOS.
Portability with containers, lets you move from cloud to cloud with little or no modifications. Containers promote a software architecture that takes true advantage of the distributed nature of cloud computing. Place applications and application components inside containers, they instantly become workloads that can be easily balanced between any number of private and public clouds, yet still communicate with each other.
Service-oriented, works with microservices to provide access to parts of the application, promoting reuse and reduce methods, getting the most out of application development.
Scalable, build apps with the assurance that scalability will happen outside of the container. Developers can now focus on writing the app without the need to deal directly with the efficient management of resources.
Containers are more of an evolution than a revolution. It’s a way to build and move applications to a state where they can be better managed and utilized. It’s simple and it works well, and we should all be happy about that fact.
