Application scenarios for Container Services

CaaS forms the basis for applications from third-party manufacturers (ISVs, Independent Software Vendors), which are delivered as container images. This allows business applications to be operated without the need for any time-consuming adjustments to the system configuration.

Container Services enable the creation of a secure delivery pipeline for your applications. This makes it easy to implement modern CI/CD concepts with a DevOps/DevSecOps approach, without having to worry about the underlying system architecture.

Modernisation of the IT infrastructure and efficient new concepts such as CI/CD require a container infrastructure such as that provided by CaaS. This allows applications to be modernised step-by-step and converted from monolithic approaches to microservices.

‘Swisscom runs its business applications on the scalable container platform. In doing so, we greatly appreciate the valuable expertise and support of our internal CaaS team.’
