Containerization and Container Orchestration

Similar to virtualization, container technology improves application portability by packaging an application together with all of its dependencies. Containers make it easier for developers to deploy applications or to move them from development and test environments into production or from one cloud computing environment to another.

According to the DORA 2018 Accelerate: State of DevOps Report, 36% of DevOps teams surveyed were using containers in development, and 31% were using them in production. However, elite performers were 1.3 times more likely than other DevOps teams to use containers.

Similarly, in the Frost & Sullivan survey, 99% of high-performing application development teams were using containers. In addition, 77% of those surveyed said containers helped them get new apps to market more quickly, and 78% agreed that containers make it easier to quickly build apps more consistently and with lower costs.

While containers aren't necessary for DevOps, high-performing teams tend to use them because they help speed up development and deployment.

For some time, the open source Docker project has been the leader in containerization, and the Kubernetes container orchestration tool is becoming increasingly popular. Other container tools include Rancher, CoreOS and Mesosphere DC/OS.
