Red Hat: Using Containers With Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Read/Download White Paper (PDF)
Traditional application deployment models move applications from development through testing and into production. Along the way, the application and the runtime environment must be kept in alignment to ensure that testing and certi cation done in the prior step remains valid. This required coordination is error prone, time consuming, and requires setting up and con guring each environ- ment along the way. Additional challenges arise when applications demand different or con icting environments. Packaging applications with Linux containers addresses these problems and provides an easier and faster application deployment model.
