Isolate & accelerate your website
What is a container?An (application) container is a lightweight, standalone software package which includes the application (your code), its dependencies/libraries (software it needs to run) and its settings in one place. The nature of being self-contained and portable lends many benefits.
What benefits?When isolating hosted domains using containerisation, it aids:
- Availability – Easily moved between differing hardware and environments, helps reduce hardware and maintenance-related outages.
- Performance – Allocating, monitoring and limiting the compute resources on each container ensures all sites are protected against resource abuse and are given appropriate environments.
- Security – Container-specific users and permissions eliminate many risks associated with traditional hosting methods.
