At a time when economic pressures are forcing businesses to sweat their IT assets and do more with less, container technology and Kubernetes can be instrumental. Achieving what is needed can be done by running more applications on fewer servers, bundling and running applications seamlessly and dramatically reducing time to market for new products and services.

Containers are similar to Virtual Machines (VMs), with file systems, central processing units (CPUs) and their own memory, but with the added benefit of being decoupled from the underlying infrastructure, so they are portable. Thus, they offer a new way to build, organise and run cloud applications, which are scalable, agile, faster and quicker to deploy.
