Dell Agent-free out-of-band Infrastructure Monitoring System using Docker container
Docker is an open source, lightweight containerization platform for distributed applications with a principle of “Build once, Run Anywhere”. It provides an ability to package software into standardised units on Docker for software development. It’s an OS virtualization layer that takes advantage of Linux kernel features like namespaces and control groups to provide complete application isolation and greatly simplifies the deployment and management of applications on any platform. Containers provide each application an independent runtime environment.
Docker provides the tools necessary to build, run and manage applications packaged as Docker images. An application distributed as a Docker image incorporates all the dependencies and configuration necessary for it to run, hence eliminating the need for end-users to install necessary packages and troubleshoot dependencies.
