Red Hat container image and host guide


Containers provide application portability. This gives teams better control over the time and place where they deploy code, but portability and compatibility are not the same thing. Development and operations teams can work at different speeds, upgrade and downgrade servers and applications independently of each other, and easily move applications between different environments, but the importance of performance, security, and compatibility between the container hosts and container images does not change. This paper will provide technical guidance on how to select the right container images and hosts for your applications.
