What are containers?

Containers are standardized units of software that contain all the code and dependencies, including binaries, libraries, and configuration files, needed for an app to run. Containerized software can run reliably from one computing environment to another.

People also ask:

1. Virtual machines vs. containers

Both virtual machines (VMs) and containers use virtualisation to create isolated environments for running applications. The key difference lies in the granularity of virtualisation they provide—VMs virtualise at the operating-system (OS) or machine level while containers virtualise at the software level.

2. What is a containers-as-a-service platform?

A containers-as-a-service (CaaS) platform is an application platform that enables developers to more quickly build, deploy, and update enterprise applications by taking advantage of the agility and portability of containers.

3. What is container orchestration?

Container orchestration tools help you provision, configure, deploy, and manage containers at scale. From allocating storage and compute resources to handling networking, load balancing, and traffic routing, container orchestration plays a vital role in setting up CI-CD pipelines, DevOps workflows, and microservices architectures. Examples of container orchestration tools include Kubernetes, Red Hat OpenShift, and Docker Swarm.

4. How does Portworx add Kubernetes data services capabilities to Pure Storage?

The acquisition of Portworx, the leading Kubernetes storage platform according to GigaOm Research, was a natural fit for Pure Storage to expand its data services capabilities for containers. Together Pure Storage and Portworx provide a complete data-services solution that provides persistent storage, data protection, and disaster recovery for your containerized applications.
