Containers are on fire right now, as businesses increasingly need to deliver secure and reliable solutions without sacrificing release velocity and while controlling cost. This container momentum is apparent in virtually every analyst report on DevOps.

With enterprise IT innovation, DevOps and digital transformation moving at light speed, containers are key to helping organizations increase their competitiveness and operating agility.
The appeal of containers is undeniable. Their design means that efficiency and speed far outstrip bare-metal installations and even virtual environments.
