Do you know what is behind the popularity of containers using Docker for Magento 2? The use of containers has become very popular because as opposed to what most
developers think, containers are built right into Magento’s backend. And that’s why it’s faster, easier, and cheaper to use a container than build an entire website from
scratch. Before getting too technical about it, here is the general idea behind it: When you use an online shop, you can store all your static pages in one central database.
And while you have many themes and plugins, most of the time you use only one Magento instance, which means it will be slow on booting up and more expensive on paying for bandwidth if multiple sites are using the same theme and plugin.
But there is a problem here: When you use a shared hosting plan, you won’t be able to have all your databases connected. You won’t be able to use an admin interface, and you won’t be able to use any of the customizations available for themes or plugins. And so your applications will be slower and less productive. And this is where a data migration tool comes in handy. If you don’t use one, your applications will load much
faster, your pages will load more quickly, and your site will be more productive.
With a data-migration tool, you can easily load up one page and then have all your other pages loaded exactly as they were originally. Each page will have its own URL and its own entry in the database. This makes integration of all the data and all the additional code as easy as possible, even if you’re not using a system like MySQL. In
fact, Magento 2 uses a simpler structure than the original, so you don’t have to worry about any complicated code.
For example, if you have a shopping cart component with a lot of products, but you have sales tax rate options enabled, it would take quite some time for the whole page to be downloaded. So when the browser sends an error message saying loading error, it will redirect you to the login page. However, if you have a hook installed that
performs a login verification, and then you pass in the server URL, it will automatically load the page, without redirecting the user at all. That way, you can be sure that they are logging in properly, and that they are actually purchasing your products in your store.
Another advantage of using docker is that your login details and password are encrypted. This prevents any third-party websites from viewing them, and so your data is safe from hackers. This is also why it’s recommended that you use a Magento bootstrapper, as this ensures that the information stored on your server and secure. It also ensures that you can process credit card transactions properly and avoid fraudulent activity.
Security is another big issue with Magento apps of any kind. Unless you have written extensively about the subject, you probably don’t know how vulnerable your application is. With just a few simple commands, an intruder could take over your store, change its prices, products, and more. In most cases, this is not even necessary. With an automated process inside Docker system, you can catch any possible intruders and keep them away from your system.
You can also work with a pre-built package from a repository. These are called plugins, and they are just collections of scripts that you install in your Magento install. With the help of a repository, you don’t have to write the code yourself: they take care of everything for you. Everything you need is just passed along by an automated process. With this type of plugin, your developer account will never be required.
For developers who are working with multiple files and multiple databases, this is a real time saver. You don’t need to login and log in again. Everything is tracked via an easily browsable interface. Everything is also securely backed up, automatically restored, and maintained on a regular basis. There are even some pre-built themes
that you can use if you prefer a default theme. These are just a few of the advantages of using a container for Magento 2.
