Package Software into Standardized Units for Development, Shipment and Deployment
A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another. A container image is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings.
Container images available for both Linux and Windows-based applications, containerized software will always run the same, regardless of the infrastructure. Containers isolate software from its environment and ensure that it works uniformly despite differences for instance between development and staging.
Comparing Containers and Virtual Machines
Containers and virtual machines have similar resource isolation and allocation benefits, but function differently because containers virtualize the operating system instead of hardware. Containers are more portable and efficient.
The FYNB Cloud Platform gives access to:
The FYNB Cloud Platform is built on the most innovative technologies (IBM CloudPacks, Terraform, kubernetes, docker, cri-o and Helm). Thus, the platform allows you to add new functionality on top of your existing legacy systems which is more efficient and saves budget.
These are some of the applications that are available on the FYNB Cloud Platform. If you’re missing an application logo, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add the application to our platform.
