A lot of articles and blogs have already been written about the benefits of using containers for your application delivery, also called containerized delivery. While the serverless trend is considered the containers’ successor in application delivery, it still is not the best fit for all situations.
I’ve built numerous apps in my life and the one thing they had in common was that they all had to retrieve their data from somewhere – typically, a REST-based API. Cloud technology made it easier to implement these APIs, but our mobile software architecture hasn’t changed that much.
