Application containerization is an OS-level virtualization method used to deploy and run distributed applications without launching an entire virtual machine (VM) for each app. Multiple isolated applications or services run on a single host and access the same OS kernel. Containers work on bare-metal systems, cloud instances and virtual machines, across Linux and select Windows and Mac OS.
The Rise of Everything-As-A-Service
Ease of service adaptability has given a competitive edge but also left Organisations with lesser control
Few innovations have been adopted quite as quickly as containerisation is being embraced for Cloud migrations right now

In the last few years an ongoing effort to streamline infrastructures, maximize server resources, and ensure that applications run smoothly and securely, different approaches have shaken up the traditional server-side architecture—things like the cloud and virtualization. More and more businesses are migrating applications away from traditional IT set-ups in the search of better performance, more efficiency, and more competitive operating costs.
In this mix is containerization, a technology that isn’t new but that’s being used in new ways. It offers a more efficient alternative to virtualization and it’s heavily influencing the future of cloud computing—and the direction of Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) businesses that offer private and public cloud services.
