Containerization involves packaging an application code with all its related files, libraries and dependencies within standardized units called containers. Basically, containers are self-contained software packages that are independent from a host operating system and thus can run anywhere, regardless of environment.
Being one of the core technologies of cloud computing, containers often become the first step on the way toward application enhancement and cloud migration.
Containers are self-contained software packages that are able to run on any platform or cloud.
Unlike virtual machines that require dedicated OSs, containers share the machine’s OS kernel. This makes them “lighter” in terms of resource usage and enables to start instantly.
Containerized applications are isolated and operate independently from one another, meaning the failure of one container does not affect the operation of others. Any technical issues could be resolved within a stand-alone container without the need to stop others
With one process per container it is easier to control the number of containers running and their resource utilization.
Simple management in large numbers with container orchestration solutions.
Ideally aligned with microservices architecture that involves decomposing an application into small loosely coupled services that are easy to containerize.
At SHALB, we provide all kinds of container management services, including dockerization, orchestration, artefact storage and registry management to help you adopt container technologies and make the most of it.
Once your workloads are containerized and running, you’ll need to orchestrate them in order to use your containers most effectively. The orchestrators allow you to handle containers en masse by automating most of routine tasks related to container management, including:
Leverage the power of the most popular container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes and Docker Swarm to have full control of your containerized apps. As open-source projects, both Kubernetes and Swarm have broad integration possibilities to provide you with additional pluggable features like logging, monitoring and analytics for the full insight of your running services.
Build, test and deploy your containers easier, safer and faster with Docker containerization platform, an open source tool for creating and running Linux containers. Docker integrates with a number of infrastructure tools and cloud platforms, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Ansible, Chef, Jenkins, and Puppet.
Run your existing Docker workloads at scale with Kubernetes, an open source container orchestration platform for scheduling and automating the deployment, management, and scaling of containerized applications.
Take advantage of Docker’s native support for orchestrating clusters of Docker engines.
Simplify cluster management by running Kubernetes through a managed cloud service. Get a highly available, secure by default cluster with managed control panel and automatic upgrades.
SHALB has years of experience in container management and orchestration. Our engineers are here to help you start using containers for your applications.
