Let’s talk about containers and data centers for a moment. If you need a more agile DevOps team, it’s time to take a closer look at them. Containers provide virtualization at the operating system level. They are a lightweight approach to virtualization that provides the bare minimum for an application to run and function as intended. You can think of containers as similar to a virtual machine, one not running on a hypervisor, which typically includes applications and libraries.

Containers are large and usually measured in tens of megabytes, and it only takes 1 to 2 seconds to provision one. As the load increases, new containers can easily be created. When the load declines, containers can easily be deleted. If you need to update a container, all you have to do is modify the configuration file and then create a new container.

Even though virtual machines and containers share some characteristics, containers are not virtual machines. Here are some significant differences setting them apart.
