Define a unit of software delivery called a Standard Container.
The goal of a Standard Container is to encapsulate a software component and all its dependencies in a format that is self-describing and portable, so that any compliant runtime can run it without extra dependencies, regardless of the underlying machine and the contents of the container.

Irrespective of their contents, by standardizing the container itself it allowed for a consistent, more streamlined and efficient set of processes to be defined.
For software Standard Containers offer similar functionality by being the fundamental, standardized, unit of delivery for a software package.

Standard Containers define a set of STANDARD OPERATIONS.
They can be created, started, and stopped using standard container tools; copied and snapshotted using standard filesystem tools; and downloaded and uploaded using standard network tools.

Standard Containers are CONTENT-AGNOSTIC: all standard operations have the same effect regardless of the contents.
They are started in the same way whether they contain a postgres database, a php application with its dependencies and application server, or Java build artifacts.

+## <a name="infrastructureAgnostic" />3. Infrastructure-agnostic
Standard Containers are INFRASTRUCTURE-AGNOSTIC: they can be run in any OCI supported infrastructure.
For example, a standard container can be bundled on a laptop, uploaded to cloud storage, downloaded, run and snapshotted by a build server at a fiber hotel in Virginia, uploaded to 10 staging servers in a home-made private cloud cluster, then sent to 30 production instances across 3 public cloud regions.

Standard Containers are DESIGNED FOR AUTOMATION: because they offer the same standard operations regardless of content and infrastructure, Standard Containers, are extremely well-suited for automation.
In fact, you could say automation is their secret weapon.

Builds failed, libraries conflicted, mirrors crashed, post-it notes were lost, logs were misplaced, cluster updates were half-broken.

Standard Containers make INDUSTRIAL-GRADE DELIVERY of software a reality.
Leveraging all of the properties listed above, Standard Containers are enabling large and small enterprises to streamline and automate their software delivery pipelines.
