VMware vSphere Integrated Containers – Application Repackaging
Eduardo Meirelles da Rocha created an interesting blog post about Integrated Containers. You can find his blog here, with all comments or simply scroll down.
When talking about containers it’s inevitable to think about modern application built natively for the cloud, but the reality for most companies is that the majority of, if not all, their applications still traditional applications and probably they will still that way for many years to come.
Does that mean you cannot join the containers party ? ABSOLUTELY NOT !!!

What it means is that you can take your traditional application, monolithic or even a 3-tier application and repackage them as containers, without having to change a single line of code.
You don’t even need to change all layers of your application, start simple. Containerize only the web/presentation layer and give it a try.
