Containers let you package software into portable, executable media that run on Linux systems. By maintaining filesystems, network interfaces, process tables, and other features separately from those of the host system, containerized applications offer greater flexibility and scalability than non-containerized applications. To learn more about containers, check out the Red Hat Guide to Linux Containers.

Mission-critical applications require trusted containers. Container images available from the Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog are built from base images that have been vetted by Red Hat’s internal security team and hardened against security flaws.
