CONTAINERS: THE PROS AND CONS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT
We are using containers” is the battle cry of enterprises looking to get to the ultimate in performance, scalability, and portability. Well, some of that can happen. But there are limitations as well.Here’s my guidance around what value containers actually bring to the enterprise—and what they don’t bring. Beyond containers’ technical advantages, containers also offer advantages many enterprises don’t know about.Containers reduce complexity through abstractions. The main reason while you use containers is that they don’t require that you do cloud-native things to your application. The containers themselves are the platform. This means that the container is portable, without complex native interfaces to manage and that lock you into a cloud platform.Containers are good at automation. Automation replaces manual scripting, again providing better portability. Containers can provide better security and governance. It turns out that security and governance are platform-specific, so they are best left outside of containers. This means you can centralize security and governance, reducing overall complexity.
