An Introduction to Containers

5 November, 2015, Aten Design Group

Containers are an incredibly powerful tool for deploying and scaling sites. For a long time, though, I felt as though I’d missed the boat on what they are and how to use them. Every post I could find was a tutorial that explained how to start one, but not what they are. This is the post I wish I had found first. It’s not a tutorial and it’s not about lessons learned. We’re going to start with the basics and work our way up to understanding containers as a concept.
