Five Steps to Determine Whether an App Can Be Containerized
Containers have become an incredibly popular technology in recent years. The portability and simplicity of deployment they introduced, combined with their natural fit for microservice applications, have made containers the logical foundation for net new applications. But did you know that containers can provide even more benefits to your legacy applications?
Containers provide significant resource efficiencies compared to running applications directly on servers. Switching to a container-based deployment allows you to consolidate more applications onto a server compared to VMs by removing the need for the OS along with the cost of the OS license. Using bare metal servers or VMs instead of containers for a single app is like paying for a large house for a single person — including all of the mortgage, maintenance, and real estate tax expenses — when you could be just as happy living in a studio apartment at a fraction of the cost.
