Containers Enable Consistent Deployment and Execution

Containers are popular with both developers and operators because they offer a simpler way to achieve deployment and execution consistency. They can also help to improve development and operations (DevOps) team handoffs.

What are Containers?

A container running on a machine is simply a process on the host operating system like any other. So what makes containers so popular? It's how the process is isolated and restricted. This is done in a very specific way that simplifies development and operations.

Containers Isolate and Abstract Resources

"Containers promise faster app delivery cycles with better runtime execution, and ultimately lower production infrastructure costs."
