The growing number of hybrid cloud deployments is accelerating the demand for enterprise container infrastructure as companies seek a consistent application development environment. This page gathers resources about the combination of containers and hybrid clouds including benefits of this combination and tutorials on how to get started.

Below we have compiled publicly available sources from around the world that present views on Containers and Hybrid Clouds.
The Container Security book by Liz Rice Fundamental Technology Concepts that Protect Containerized Applications
Advocates for hybrid cloud deployments have declared containers to be a major reason as why organizations should transition since there is an increased level of visibility and portability towards application performance.
Even though containers have been around for a number of years, they’re only just becoming popular, so they are still maturing. There’s a lot of work the organization will need to do to configure their container setup to work efficiently in a hybrid environment.
Container Architecture — Resources on building blocks of a container architecture, and architectural options organizations face when using containers for application development.
Advantages of Containers — Resources about the advantages of containers for developers and ops, including immutability, utilization, portability, performance and scalability.
Container Challenges — Containers are quickly becoming popular as a way to speed and simplify application deployment. However, while developers often find it fast and easy to deploy containerized applications, experts say that enterprises sometimes run into unexpected challenges when deploying containers in production. This page gathers resources about some of the major challenges in container adoption and how to overcome them.
Containers and IT Infrastructure — Information technology infrastructure is composed of physical and virtual resources that support the flow, storage, processing and analysis of data. This page gathers resources about the combination of containers and IT Infrastructure like hybrid clouds, private clouds, data center and more.
Enterprise DevOps — Large enterprises have bigger teams, more inherent operational complexity, and greater governance controls. Therefore, they need a different type of DevOps that caters to their sensibilities and not those of agile web startups. This page gathers resources about DevOps practices for large organizations.
eBPF — eBPF – extended Berkeley Packet Filter – is a Linux-native in-kernel virtual machine that enables secure, low-overhead tracing for application performance and event observability and analysis. eBPF delivers a lot more than network packet information, it can offer the deep visibility for cloud-native and container environments, from host and network data to container processes, resource utilization, and more.
eBPF Linux — eBPF (Extended Berkeley Packet Filter) is a Linux-native in-kernel virtual machine that enables secure, low-overhead tracing for application performance and event observability and analysis. eBPF enables programmers to write code which gets executed in kernel space in a more secure and restricted environment. This page gather resources about eBPF on Linux and tutorials.
