Why Containers are becoming popular?


Containers are becoming increasingly popular in enterprises, and their adoption and use show no signs of slowing down. Quite the contrary. There are more and more companies that depend on containers to carry the burden of work with apps and service deployment. Administrators often use their preferred operating systems for deployment and management, but in many cases, this implies the use of too much power and functions when simpler and more precise systems are needed. To avoid this there are specific operating systems, in this case, for the containers. Like Super Container OS, developed by Harshad Joshi.


This container operating system is a Linux distribution that, although it is still in the testing phase and advances to be an ally for all those who work on the start-up and research of deployment and management of containers. It can easily run in both ways installed and uninstalled, loading the system into memory from startup. It has the Docker container engine installed by default, and Kubernetes is also pre-installed.


In addition, among other options, it also allows you to run with Xen Hypervisor & Proxmox Hypervisor during installation, and Portainer is pre-installed for easy Docker management. It comes to build with Cockpit installed and activated and has Helm for managing pre-configured Kubernetes resource bundles easily. To be Remember, during the installation, although it asks you for an administrator password, you must avoid doing it as it may cause issues. At least for now, because it doesn't work according to TechRepublic, if you do so you want to be able to use many of its features and will have to install it a second-time installation, this time without an administrator password.


Super Container OS installs like any other Linux distribution, either through a CLI, text-based installer, or an installer that has a graphical user interface and can make the process easier, especially for those who don't have a lot of experience with Linux distros.


After installation, or starting without installation, container deployers and managers will find a system that is simple and devoid of superfluous features. All of its elements are focused on the development and deployment of containers and tools. This gets rid of the need to develop, before being able to focus on working with containers, the environments that allow you to do so easily.
