In Docker, applications are shipped using a lightweight format, managed with a high-level API, and run within software containers which abstract the host environment. Operating details like distributions, versions, and network setup no longer matter to the application developer.
Thanks to this abstraction level, we can use the same container across all steps of the life cycle of an application, from development to production. This eliminates problems stemming from discrepancies between those environments.
Even so, these environments will always have different requirements. If our quality assurance (QA) and production systems use different logging systems, how can we still ship the same container to both? How can we satisfy the backup and security requirements of our production stack without bloating our development stack?
In this sess, you will learn about the unique features in containers that allow you to cleanly decouple system administrator tasks from the core of your application. We’ll show you how this decoupling results in smaller, simpler containers, and gives you more flexibility when building, managing, and evolving your application stacks.
