Container Security

Container security refers to protecting container-based applications and their infrastructure from threats. Containers are units of software that bundle code and its dependencies, offering consistency across different environments. They allow for faster deployment, easier scaling, and improved portability, making them essential for modern DevOps and cloud-native systems. To ensure container security, a range of measures are needed throughout the container’s lifecycle, including development, deployment, and runtime.

Batch Processing

Batch processing is a data processing method where a group of transactions is collected over a period and processed as a single batch. This approach contrasts with real-time processing, where each transaction is processed individually and immediately. Batch processing is particularly suited for operations that don’t require immediate results because it can be scheduled to run during off-peak hours to reduce the load on computational resources.

Data Persistence

Data persistence means ensuring the information your application uses (and creates) doesn’t disappear when the app is closed or crashes. Think of it like saving a document you’re working on. If you don’t save it, you’ll lose all your work when you turn off your computer. But if you do save it, you can open it again anytime.
