Container Management

Run your applications consistently across different environments with SHALB’s container management services.

We provide organizations with all kinds of container services, including:

  • Dockerization
  • Orchestration
  • Artifact storage
  • Registry management
  • Helm charts development
  • Kubernetes cluster deployment
Why use containers?

Containerization involves packaging an application code with all its multiple related files, libraries, and dependencies within standardized units called containers. Containers are self-contained software packages independent from a host operating system. Containers can run anywhere, regardless of the environment, making them easier to maintain.

Containerization is one of the core technologies of cloud computing. Therefore, efficient container management is an essential step toward migrating an application to a cloud.

Benefits of containerization

Containers are self-contained software packages  capable of running on any management platform or cloud.
With one process per container, controlling the number of containers running and their resource utilization is easier.
Speed and efficiency
Unlike virtual machines that require the support of dedicated OSs, containers share the machine’s OS kernel. This makes them “lighter” in terms of resource usage and enables them to start instantly.
Containerized applications are isolated and operate independently from one another, meaning the failure of one container does not affect the performance of others.
Container management solutions

If your application consists of a few containers, managing it with Docker Engine, a de-facto industry runtime, is easy. However, when it comes to thousands of deployed containers, your team will need specialized tools to organize a complex workflow process with maximum efficiency.

Container management software allows you to manage containers en masse and automate most of the routine tasks related to their deployment, scaling, updating, scheduling, networking, and monitoring.

Leverage the power of container management tools in your project to administer your containerized apps easier. Let us help you embrace the game-changing technologies for the most efficient infrastructure management. We work with gold standard container management platforms like Kubernetes and Docker and all kinds of cloud container orchestration services, including AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service, Google Kubernetes Engine, Azure Kubernetes Service, Amazon Elastic Container Service, and AWS Fargate.

Combined with our experience in container and cluster management, these technologies will enable you to tune your infrastructure’s efficiency while growing the benefits to your business, including:

  • Optimized resource management with autoscaling
  • Reducing human intervention thanks to the automation of most management tasks
  • Smooth and simplified deployments
  • Enhanced control and security
  • Ideally aligned with microservices architecture.

“The solutions proposed by Shalb have proven their quality over time. The built cluster turned out to be easy and cheap to scale. Using it, we easily increased the number of clients we can serve at the same time by tenfold, without proportionally increasing the size of our team.”


What is container management?

Container management refers to the process of efficiently overseeing and administering containers, including their deployment, scaling, updating, scheduling, networking, and monitoring. It involves using specialized tools and platforms to automate tasks and ensure smooth operation of containerized applications.

How do I manage Docker containers?

Docker containers can be managed using the Docker Engine, a powerful runtime environment for running and managing containers. With Docker, you can easily create, start, stop, and manage containers using Docker commands and APIs. Docker also provides tools for container networking, storage management, and orchestration.

How do I manage Docker containers with Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is a popular container orchestration platform that simplifies the management of Docker containers at scale. To manage Docker containers with Kubernetes, you need to create a Kubernetes cluster, define and deploy containerized applications using Kubernetes manifests or YAML files, and utilize Kubernetes features like scaling, load balancing, and health checks for efficient container management.

How do I manage Docker containers on AWS?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides several services for managing Docker containers. AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS) allows you to deploy and manage containers without needing to manage the underlying infrastructure. AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) enables you to run Kubernetes on AWS for container orchestration. Additionally, AWS Fargate offers serverless compute for containers, abstracting away the need to manage the infrastructure completely.

How can I create a system management container?

Creating a system management container involves building a container image that includes the necessary tools and utilities for managing a system. You can start with a base image of your choice, install the required management software inside the container, and configure it to interact with the host system. This allows you to perform system management tasks within the container environment, providing isolation and flexibility.

What are the advantages of using container management tools?

Container management tools automate and streamline the management of containers, leading to several benefits. These include optimized resource management with autoscaling, reduced manual intervention through task automation, simplified deployments, enhanced control and security, and alignment with microservices architecture. By leveraging container management tools, you can achieve greater efficiency and operational excellence in your infrastructure.

Can containers run on any management platform?

Yes, containers are designed to be portable, allowing them to run on any management platform that supports containerization technology. Containers are independent of the underlying infrastructure, making them highly flexible and compatible across different environments, such as Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, AWS, Azure, and more.

How do containers differ from virtual machines?

Containers differ from virtual machines (VMs) in several ways. Containers share the host operating system (OS) kernel, making them lightweight and faster to start compared to VMs. They require fewer resources since they don’t need a separate OS for each container. Containers also offer better isolation between applications, ensuring that failures in one container do not affect others running on the same system.

Can container management tools help with scaling applications?

Yes, container management tools like Kubernetes provide built-in scaling capabilities. You can define scaling rules based on metrics such as CPU usage or incoming traffic, and Kubernetes will automatically scale the number of container replicas to meet the demand. This helps ensure your applications can handle increased load efficiently without manual intervention.

Are container management tools suitable for microservices architecture?

Absolutely. Container management tools align perfectly with microservices architecture. Containers provide the required isolation and encapsulation for individual microservices, while container management platforms like Kubernetes enable efficient deployment, scaling, and networking of microservices. With container management tools, you can easily manage the complexity of microservices-based applications, ensuring high availability and scalability.
