Container & Kubernetes

Unleash innovation with containers & Kubernetes

Containers and Kubernetes have revolutionized the way applications are developed, deployed, and managed. Together, these technologies are boosting scalability, efficiency, and adaptability – with new flexibility in development and portability in deployment.


Containers work like a virtual operating system, running anything from microservices to large applications. The container will contain all the necessary code, executables, libraries, and configuration files. Unlike traditional server or virtual machine approaches, containers do not contain entire operating systems.

A key advantage of containers is that they keep applications isolated from each other and the host system. They also allow faster deployment and easier scaling when compared to hardware virtualization systems.


Docker is an open-source platform that makes it easy to set up, scale, and manage applications stored in containers. It works all types of applications – from standalone web servers to complex cloud-based applications. It’s ideal for managing the lifecycle off a single container.


Kubernetes, also known as K8s, is another open-source powerhouse, used to manage applications in containers. This orchestration platform can also be used to set up, grow, and managed containerized applications. Kubernetes clusters are great for large setups on multiple different computers, across public or private clouds, or a hybrid mix of both. It’s the platform of choice for cloud-native applications that need to be able to scale quickly – for example, real-time data streaming through Apache Kafka.

Docker and Kubernetes in partnership

Docker is great for managing the lifecycle of a single container, while Kubernetes is great for managing many containers at once, deployed across a cluster. The best part? They can be fully integrated, working even better together.

Think of it like this: The containers make it easy to package and distribute applications and their environments, while Kubernetes creates the framework required to cluster and manage those containers.

This approach is liberating. It gives developers and organizations a new level of freedom, forever changing the way we develop, deploy, and manage applications.

Benefits of containers and Kubernetes

Portability and consistency

Your applications will run the same way across every environment. No more “Well, that’s not what it looks like on my machine…” frustrations.

Scalability and efficiency

Kubernetes lets your applications scale up or down as required. Your resource usage is optimized for fluctuating workloads.

Lightweight and speedy

Containers share the core operating system – that’s effective. Enjoy faster startups, reduced resource usage, and smooth deployment.

Reliability and recovery

Kubernetes gives systems fault tolerance for maximum reliability. When a container fails, Kubernetes fixes it for a fast recovery.

Declarative configuration

You specify the way you want your applications to be, and Kubernetes automatically adjusts everything to match.

We can't contain our excitement

You’ve read plenty about the benefits of containers and Kubernetes at this point. We know you want in. And we can’t wait to get started.
