Mastering the Art of Container Management
Managing containers in cloud environments would be a lot simpler if there were just one type of container you and your staff needed to deal with. Any technology as multifaceted as containerization comes with a bucket full of new management challenges. The key is to get ahead of the potential pitfalls before you find yourself hip deep in them.
The simplest container scenario is packaging and distributing an existing application as a Docker container: all of the app’s dependencies are wrapped into a Docker image, and a single text file (Dockerfile) is added to explain how to create the image. Then each server can run only that instance of the container, just as the server would run one instance of the app itself.
