Container overview

Containers are an operating system-level isolation method for running multiple applications on a single control host. With developers building, and then packaging their applications into containers, and providing them to IT to run on a standardized platform, it reduces the overall effort to deploy applications, and can streamline the whole dev and test cycle, ultimately reducing costs. As containers can run on a host OS, which itself could be a physical or virtual machine, it provides IT with flexibility, and the opportunity to drive an increased level of server consolidation, all while keeping a level of isolation that allows many containers to share the same host operating system.
