Going Cloud Native And Avoiding Turbulence

Recommended Posts

Containers allow applications to be moved reliably from one computing environment to another. This could be from a developer’s laptop, to the QA environment to production on-premise or in the cloud. Software stack dependencies of the application running in the container, such as the operating system or other software components and libraries, can largely be embedded inside a container allowing it to run decoupled from the details of the underlying IT environment. Containers were originally designed to provide isolation between applications running on an operating system. They provide a combination of resource controls and boundary separation that helps to isolate the execution of code within the container from other activities and other containers that are running on that machine/operating system. Containers achieve this isolation by leveraging operating system functions like cgroups and namespaces.
