How to successfully use containers

Source:- techhq.com In traditional software development, code developed in one environment doesn’t necessarily run the same when deployed in another; there often are bugs and errors. Running software in containers in the cloud can help developers overcome many of these issues, and adoption of containerization ecosystems like Docker and Kubernetes continues to grow. In fact, 451 Research predicts that application container technology will grow by 40 percent before 2020. And Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 75 percent of global organizations will be running containerized
