Companies move to containers platforms than virtual machines
Moreover, Most of the companies interested to move to containers platforms than virtual machines. In upcoming days there is an increase in usage of container platforms like OpenShift. The company mainly focusing on the container platforms due to other companies like Deutsche Bank, Volvo and United Health are varying their interests.
As the company increases its container open source it’s trying to build out the platform. To meet the needs of larger company IT departments. One of the things they’ve been hearing is that they want it to be easier to connect applications already in container to internal and external services.
In addition, the Service Catalog is not like pre-configured connectors in the applications store that developers can go in and find. This could be an internal connector to an Oracle database or an external one to a public cloud service from AWS or Azure (or anything else).
Customers were able to make these service connections before with more effort. The goal is to provide a packaged approach so that users don’t have to do the work every time, help to speed up implementation.
