Containers & Platform

Run Your Applications on a Bullet-Proof Container Platform

What Are Containers?

Containers are a lightweight software package that contain an application and only the dependencies the application needs to run. They abstract the underlying infrastructure from the application running inside the container while using an open-standard format so they’re portable, and run consistently, anywhere. They can make deploying even the most complex applications a breeze.
New to containers? We can help you learn where to begin.

Your applications are only as resilient as the platform they run on. We can help build what is right for your organization.

What Are the Benefits of Containers?

  • Extreme Portability

    Run your applications consistently, anywhere.

  • Cost Savings

    Reduce operating system licensing and maintenance costs.

  • Security

    Reduce the security attack surface associated with running applications on an OS.

  • Better Performance

    Increase application performance when migrating containerized legacy applications to modern platforms.

  • Hybrid Cloud

    Enables on-ramp to hybrid cloud.

  • Increased App Density

    Reduction of hardware requirements.

  • Improved Cloud Costs

    Containers are lighter weight than virtual machines (VMs).

  • No Vendor Lock-In

    Eliminate vendor lock-in through standardized container format.

  • Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC)

    Codify your application deployments.

What is Orchestration?

Orchestration is the container management layer that’s generally required when more than a handful of containers are involved. As part of the container platform, orchestrators like Kubernetes or Swarm ensure that the environment is healthy and that policies are adhered to.

What Are the Benefits of Orchestration?

The primary benefits with using orchestration to manage container deployments are:
  • Containers policy definitions and management.

  • Deploy multiple instances of the same container image

  • Perform auto-scaling.

  • Upgrade containers running an older version of your application, intelligently and without disruption.

  • Leveraging load-balancing across containers.

  • Orchestrators like Kubernetes are extensible using third party add-ons.

  • Deploy complex, multi-service, multi-tier applications with ease.

Let Us Containerize That For You.

HighVail has been working with container technology for the past 19 years. We started our container journey way back in 2004 when Sun Microsystems introduced Zones into the Solaris 10 operating system.

Fast-forward to today and we're still doing interesting things with next generation, modern container platforms and technology. Containerizing new and existing applications, regardless of where they run, is what we do well. When coupled with orchestration and automation, the benefits are limitless!
