Improve your operations with containerization

Containerization – not just a buzzword

Containerization is one of the newest software development trends, and we can expect significant growth in its adoption in both magnitude and speed. It has also become the latest buzzword in cloud computing, and it is believed it would help modernize legacy systems by creating reliable and scalable cloud-native applications. Even though it has recently gained publicity, this concept is not new. 

While the ideas of process isolation and containerization are decades old, it was the emergence of an open-source Docker Engine in 2013 that accelerated the adoption of this technology on a wider scale. Since then, the Docker Engine has become an industry standard for the containerization process.  

However, how does it exactly work? Containerization is a software deployment process that bundles an application’s code with all the files and libraries it needs to run on any infrastructure. With its efficiency, portability and speed, we’ll surely hear more about it in the near future.

Containerization of Applications

Application containerization is a dynamically developing technology changing the way developers test and run application instances in the cloud environment. Application containers store all the components necessary to execute an application, including files, libraries, and environment variables. Thanks to available containerization technology, it's possible to run multiple isolated, separately contained applications that access the same OS kernel. 

Application containers can share computational resources and memory without requiring a full operating system for each application to run. The main benefit of containerization is it streamlines application testing and management for software developers. Portability is another benefit – an application container can run on any system and in any cloud, no need to introduce code changes. 

Virtualization vs Containerization

Virtualization and Containerization technologies both propose improvements to the development processes as they allow developers to run multiple software types in a single environment. However, containerization technology has proven to be much more beneficial than virtualization, making it the favoured tech by IT professionals.   

What’s exactly the difference in the way they operate? Virtualization allows executing multiple operating systems at the hardware level, whereas containerization virtualize at the OS level.  

Containerization is much more efficient and seamless than virtualization, making it a natural evolution of the latter. Whereas virtualization is vital in distributing several operating systems on a single server, containerization is more flexible and granular.

The Cost of Containerization Services

The overall cost of your project depends on the time needed to deliver it and the number of software developers included. Based on the scope of your project, software developers estimate the workload and use hourly rates to calculate the cost of IT containerization services.  

In software development, commonly used billing options include fixed price or time and material. In fixed price, the budget is simply “fixed” and doesn’t depend on any changes in time. Time and material, on the other hand, will take delivery time into account, even if it changes during the project.

What are the most popular containerization tools?

Containerization technology has quite recently blown up in popularity in the world of IT, but there are already several companies fighting for developers’ attention and the name of the best containerization software to capitalise on this fast-growing trend.  

Among numerous containerization solutions, there are three tools that have wide currency. Today's containerization tool leaders are Docker Platform and Kubernetes Engine.

How popular is containerization?

Containerization has recently made a splash among developers due to its speed, ease of management and efficiency. In 2022, 16 percent of respondents from a global survey stated that containerization was already playing a strategic role for their business. It’s even more popular among enterprises. More than half (61%) of enterprise employees is currently using or experimenting with Container as a Service technology, according to the RightScale State of the Cloud report from Flexera. 

What is container orchestration?

Container orchestration is a technology enabling the automatic management of containers. Automated management is crucial for modern cloud application development as one application may contain thousands of microservices in their respective containers. With the large number of containerized microservices, it’s impossible for software developers to manage them manually. 

 Developers use container orchestration tools to automatically start, stop, and manage containers. With container orchestrators, developers can scale cloud applications precisely and avoid human errors.
