Most companies deploying container technology end up with stacks consisting of dozens of components representing different microservices. These may each be replicated many times to meet demand. Operating on a stack like this is complex task involving understanding the dependencies and relationships of the components. Cloning such a stack is an important capability to keep dev, test and production in sync. Being able to deploy a clone into a new environment so that it replicates the original is a tough problem. In addition, companies need to perform functional, security and performance tests against whole stacks. Being able to deploy multiple copies of a stack for testing purposes, development is critical to high reliability. Making automation so it operates on stacks in a CI/CD environment to facilitate fast and agile development is another critical function.
