Benefits of Using Containers

Running applications in containers brings a number of benefits:

  • Although there are a number of advantages to using containers, not all applications are suitable for running in containers. In particular, it is generally accepted that applications with a graphical user interface are not suitable for using with containers. Micro Focus recommends that when evaluating potential use of containers you bear in mind the types of application that you will need to run.
  • Micro Focus recommends that you always follow your operating system vendor's best practices when working with containers.
