What is Containerization?

Containerization is a form of operating system virtualization whereby applications are run in isolated spaces called “containers.” These containers use the same operating system (OS) and communicate with one another via inter-process communications that vary by container vendor. Containerization has become a major trend in software development, as it allows developers to encapsulate code and all of its dependencies into one unit that can run consistently on any infrastructure. In essence, a container is a fully packaged and portable computing environment. Containerized apps easier to deploy and less costly than VMs, making them a popular choice for overhead-conscious developers who wish to deploy products quickly and effectively.
