What applications are containerized?

(Deschan) #1

Hi everyone,

I am new to Docker and would like to know what applications are being containerized these days. Has there been any study done on such?

to be provocative: everything w/o a classical Graphical User Interface :slight_smile:

containerization is good if you need some of the following characteristics:

  • reproduceability
  • scaleability
  • stable initialization
  • flexibility in deployment

if one of the following characteristics is your main goal of containerization, then you probably missuse it:

  • process management
  • orchestration of multiple processes
  • “cgroup - security”
  • unikernels

hope this helps.
