Container Adaptability and Challenges | HCLTech

Organizations are adopting Containers to speed up software deployment, scaling, and digital transformation. The container has made the biggest impact in IT, especially in digital transformation and greenfield development. Most of the new greenfield development is now taking place targeting containers.

Developers, of course, have eagerly embraced containers over virtual machines as Containerization helps to move fast, deploy software efficiently, and operate at an unprecedented scale. The container holds all software/package dependency for your application. It abstracted underlying OS and infrastructure, which means it can run consistently in any environment and execute in the same manner no matter where your container is deployed. It can be private, public cloud, on-premises, hosted server, a developer’s working machine containers are designed to run consistently everywhere.

Containers build for distributed environments considering microservices architectures, multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, on-prem and provide broader benefits across the following areas:

  • Agility and productivity
  • Fine-grained resilience
  • Scalability and infrastructure optimization
  • Operational consistency
  • Component portability

Despite the potential gains offered by containers and the recent enthusiasm to adopt them, some enterprises remain hesitant to adopt containers.

The purpose of this whitepaper is to explain the “Challenges in container adaptability and how to address”. The process and tools involved in Containerization and how to mitigate risk are also explained. Download whitepaper to continue reading
