How, Where, And Why Are Containers Leveraged In The Software Development Life Cycle?

The rapid, continuous development and delivery of high-quality software isn’t just a competitive differentiator anymore: It’s a requirement to remain viable as a company, regardless of industry. As consumers demand more innovative capabilities and firms require ever-more robust infrastructure and applications to serve increasingly discerning customers, IT professionals involved in the application development life cycle are hungry for tools and processes that reduce friction and shorten timelines. Enter Linux containers: a tried-and-true technology whose starring role in DevOps methodology means it’s in high demand today. But where and how, exactly, are containers gaining the most traction? And if they actually merit all the hype, why haven’t all organizations put them at the center of their development processes?

Red Hat’s container-focused solutions provide the infrastructure, platform, and control necessary to create the DevOps culture that helps financial institutions benefit from faster software lifecycles.
