According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, container is a noun, and is defined as a receptacle for holding goods. Alternatively, it also means, a portable compartment in which freight is placed (as on a train or ship) for convenience of movement. In this blog, I’ll be talking about containers in the networking sense and the important role they play in virtualizing data center resources and computing capabilities. Today, data centers represent the digital foundation for delivering most IT services and providing storage, communications, and networking to the growing number of connected devices, users, and processes that we rely on in our personal and business lives. The increased focus on business agility and cost optimization has led to the rise and growth of cloud data centers. Virtualization is at the heart of the efficient and effective use of data center technology. There are various forms of virtualization, but containers offer a unique set of benefits for particular implementation types.
