Why Organizations Are Moving Towards Containerization
In the last years, application deployment has gone from virtual machines based cloud platforms to containers. One of the main reasons for the shift was the ease that Docker brought with it, allowing developers to code and move around containers, but there are several other reasons for the increase in the trend:
Encapsulation: Prior to Docker, handling containers was difficult, to say the least. But now, with a better user experience, it’s easier to handle containers and package their applications.
Modular: With the advent of cloud computing, many organizations have started opting for microservices architecture over the already existing monolith core. Since containers are modular, they easily fit into the microservices architecture, and they can be moved around as well.
Portability: With containers being portable, developers can build an app and run it on almost any platform without any major modifications to the code.
