IT containers help package applications as portable modular units decoupled from the underlying code, the operating system, the infrastructure, and the machine. They help simplify access to the underlying infrastructure to deliver greater business agility, improve performance and reduce costs. Some of the key benefits include:
Portability, with flexibility to run consistently across multiple environments
Accelerated build-test-deploy life cycles with continuous integration and deployment
Resilient and automated applications with auto-placement and auto-restart
Continual innovation fueled by an open source community
This ultimately helps reduce deployment failure, minimize development time, cut IT operational tasks and reduce the need for manual interactions.
