Future Market Insights
Software containers provide operating system virtualization which helps the application to run on cloud and data centres. Software containers package the application’s code and configurations into separate building blocks which can be run on cloud. These software containers are lightweight and offer operational efficiency.
Software containers offer a number of advantages such as speeding up the configuration cycle, providing granular control over resources, which help to improve efficiency and applications can be scaled up and down as per requirement.
Software Containers Market: Drivers and Restraints
With cloud computing becoming more mainstream, companies are rapidly adopting software containers for improving the overall efficiency of the application. Software containers also facilitate cost savings by reducing the expenses on hardware. Software containers also offer environment consistency because all application files and necessary infrastructure are stored at one place and can be deployed consistently over any environment. Software containers also keep a track of different versions of application code which can help in inspecting the difference between several versions.
One of the major challenges in the software containers market is persistent storage which occurs when containers running databases are used in production setups. Another major challenge to the market is networking issues related to software containers.
