JD Edwards Containerization: Why It Matters to the C-Suite
Helping the C-Suite Sleep Better at Night
Maybe your organization is grappling with peak processing times that require more than the forecasted compute resources, or perhaps system administration is taking entirely too long to orchestrate. Containers help solve these pain points while also helping companies:
Avoid long outage times for deployment fixes, patches, and security fixes.
Quickly scale up their IT infrastructures.
Easily move their “contained” applications across different environments (e.g., development, testing, and production).
Automatically adjust the number of compute instances based on performance metrics like CPU and memory utilization.
Pivot quickly when a business has either been added or divested of.
Enable autonomous elasticity (the speed at which the IT infrastructure can be expanded or minimized without impacting the system) of servers and their associated resources.
Quickly spin up multiple instances of new software programs, and then run those programs in a way that uses the minimal amount of resources (and no more).
Let IT personnel focus on what matters most—putting out fires and tackling day-to-day responsibilities.
Leverage the power of analytics by cloning a database, taking it offline, and putting it into the hands of the people who need it.
Lightweight and less reliant on resources than virtual machines (VMs) are, containers use up to 90% fewer resources that VMs, making them a good choice for organizations that are continually pushing themselves to “do more with less.” They also offer high levels of immutability and self-healing, whereby the system innately knows it’s not operating correctly and makes the necessary corrections to restore normal operation.
