Application containerization has become the norm in the IT industry. It allows organizations or developers to encapsulate the application code and all its dependencies in a portable environment so that the app can be deployed virtually anywhere.
In this article, we will dig deeper into both technologies and see how they complement each other.
How containers work
Before learning about containers, we first need to know why containers were designed.
In traditional app development, once an application or a service is developed, the next step is to deploy it, which can be a complex and time-consuming process. That’s because a successful app deployment requires a myriad of careful configurations, from resource allocation and dependency management to setting up environmental variables.
Another consideration is the portability of the application. If the
