There are many reasons behind the increasing popularity of container technologies. Docker’s open-sourced Docker Engine launched in 2013, helping bring containers to a critical mass. According to a recent survey by Datamation, 31% of enterprises are now using container technologies, while an additional 29% are planning on using containers.
Here are some of the benefits of implementing containers:
- Containers lower application development overhead when compared with traditional virtual machine environments based on hardware.
- Containers offer better portability, by enabling application deployment across different OSes and hardware platforms.
- Containers enable DevOps teams to achieve consistency—aiding in faster application deployment, patching and scaling.
- More importantly, containers support DevOps and Agile principles toward better and more optimized development of applications.
Containers are lightweight infrastructure components which allow applications to be deployed easily—making them a perfect infrastructure technology for enabling microservices application architecture.
