Cloud containers enable enterprises to deploy existing or new applications, microservices, Kubeflow, and Big Data applications to speed-up the migration process. They use container orchestration tools like Docker and Kubernetes to ease and simplify the migration of applications to containers.

 

Over the years, containers have changed the way enterprise cloud infrastructure is built and packaged.. Later, this advancement introduced the concept of modularity to support the independent functioning of applications and software in their lifecycle.

 

Deploying and maintaining different types of individual applications requires a lot of time and effort. Migrating these applications to the container platform offers numerous benefits, especially concerning maintenance.

Listed below are the top benefits that will add value to your containerization journey.

 

Enable Platform Independence

‘Build it once to run it anywhere and everywhere.’

Understand Application workload needs

The cloud container manages the application workload based on its configuration files, dependencies, and other significant requirements to keep it current over the changes in the environment

Easy and Reliable

Run applications anywhere, including production environments, public or private clouds, physical servers, virtual servers,, and even on the local desktop.

Portability

Compatible with the changes made in the applications. Helps to speed up the development and resilient to switch to other cloud environments whenever needed.

Requires Fewer Resources

‘Solid efficiency and density.’

Fewer resources

It does not require a separate operating system, which makes it unique.

Boosts IT infrastructure

The IT infrastructure management consists of physical and virtual resources to manage the flow, storage, processing, and analysis of data. Having a cloud container in place boosts the overall utilization of the resources and improves the deployment and rollback processes.  

Weightless

Virtual Machines are measured in gigabytes and containers measure in megabytes, making it possible to run heavy application workloads efficiently.

Reduces hardware and data center costs

Containers are designed in such a way that it has higher utilization capability while relying less on hardware and more on virtualization so that you can reduce metal and data center expenses.

 

A Higher Level of Individuality and Independence

‘Gain measurable isolation and resource-sharing to eliminate the risk of consequences.’ 

End-results

Containerized applications are isolated and work independently (containers can leverage OS security isolation techniques like SELinux access control to isolate defects within containers).

 

They share similar resources for several operations within the work environment, but they do not interact with each other. This feature helps avoid glitches in the overall process and eliminates the risk of consequences.

Individuality

Containers operate on a single server, use the same resources yet are not dependent on each other. Let us assume you have multiple applications running in containers and one of the applications crashed or failed to perform the given task, the containers which are sharing a similar server and resources will keep performing without disturbing the workflow.

 

Therefore, in both cases (if the application crashed or multiple apps running in the container) does not affect the process.

Security

If an application is affected by malware or hacked, it will not affect the performance of other containers, and because of its individualistic functionality.

Operational Speed and Resilience

‘Start, create, replicate, or even destroy from your comfort zone.’

Takes less time duration

Whether you want to start, create, replicate or destroy the container you can do it within a second. Independent of OS boot and lightweight features makes it stand out.

Easy Rollout and Rollbacks

Since the containers are quick to respond to developers and organizational needs, updating new features and fixing bugs can be done in a short period.

Other benefits

Enhance the development process, enhance time to market speed, and improve the overall operational speed. 

Enhance Developer Productivity and Development Pipeline

‘Environmental inconsistencies are challenging; using suitable tools could be the solution.’

Developer productivity

Minimizing environmental inconsistencies improves the performance of testing and debugging. And the whole process takes less time since the variables between running applications, workstations, and production environments are fewer.

Development pipeline

Cloud containers help validate the performance of the application by ensuring that they work as designed locally or otherwise. Later, it helps to eliminate environmental inconsistencies in testing and debugging, which again relatively reduces the differences between running applications on a workstation, test server or in any production environment.

 

Eventually, containers help align the applications to run smoothly in the development pipeline.

Usability of tools

Kubernetes and Docker Swarm are a crucial aspect of containers; they offer numerous advantages and portable features that make life easier to manage application workloads without any complexity. Also, roll-out and roll-back with zero downtime are some of the highlights.
