Containers are made up of container images , which are light-weight, executable packages of software. In recent times containers are in boom in the IT world. Although containers are still in a primitive stage of development, they are having increasing use in production environments this is because they promise a streamline, easy to deploy and secure method of implementing specific infrastructure requirements and they also per an alternative to virtual machine.
