Many IT professionals are often confused about why containerization is so critical for running apps with micro-architecture? Is it not just another tool for managing infrastructure? Is it not a framework that enables you to write code faster and make your program easier to run on different devices? And what about the performance issue – do these new container technologies really deliver significant speed advantages over the older micro-architecture? Here’s a look at some of the answers.
Containerization enables the engine to divide work tasks into multiple smaller tasks :
The primary reason why containerization is important for running apps on micro-architecture based platforms like iPhone, iPad, and Android lies in the fact that these devices use “architecture-based scheduling”. This scheduling approach makes it easy for apps to be developed on such mobile devices because it enables the engine to divide work tasks into multiple smaller tasks. Each of these tasks can be run on its own machine independent of other tasks and the overall effect is a faster execution of your program. And this benefit applies whether you are developing an app for a mobile device or running it on a server. Developers who are writing apps for mobile devices can make the necessary code changes to make their apps run faster on these devices by migrating them to a container-based architecture when developing.
What does containerization provide for mobile developers?
It provides a number of benefits for both the developer and the service provider. The service provider gains access to a much larger market. Since the device runs containers, there is no need to invest in hardware, resources, and power. This reduces costs since there is no need to purchase additional hardware and reduces the company risks associated with additional investments in equipment and resources.
Mobile app development can be done on a single CPU,edicated multiprocessor system (ASP) or multi-core CPU with support for multiple platforms using different development tools like Java, Android, .NET, etc. Since containerization is highly efficient and reduces operation overhead, it can help the development team to focus more on the core business functions. With micro-architecture-based development, the programmer spends more time focusing on the core functionality rather than on peripherals. On the other hand, dedicated containers can be used for managing system resources like memory, storage space and processing power.
Easier to scale up and down :
When a mobile app utilizes a container, it becomes easier to scale up and down without affecting other apps. As each component becomes smaller, the overall performance of the entire system improves. Because containerization provides a mechanism to easily handle workloads of different sizes without compromising performance, it allows the developer to use the latest technology available in the market without spending money and time on rewriting older code.
Allow developers to use the latest technology :
Containers allow developers to use the latest technology available for the device they are targeting. Since containers allow users to share applications and data between various devices, the user gets to enjoy a diverse range of options. If the device he is using doesn’t have the same technology as the one he is targeting, he can easily use the one available on his device.
Containers allow you to quickly scale your application :
In addition to the benefits discussed above, containers allow you to quickly scale your application and make changes to its functionality according to changing market conditions. Since containers use the latest technologies available in the market, yoAu get to make the most of your app development time and spend more time on the core functionality of your app. By the time users find your app worthy of their download, you will already have a substantial number of interested users. This is how running apps with micro-architecture helps the enterprise to gain an edge over its competitors.
As a result of the advantages discussed above, more companies are moving away from the traditional mobile device development. For one, there is no need to develop a single app and distribute it across different devices. By running an app in containers, developers gain the ability to utilize the latest technology available for the device they are targeting. Furthermore, containers allow easier app deployment, faster start up and reduced memory usage. All of these factors contribute to the increasing popularity of containerization across the enterprise.
