Распространение ПО в Linux: контейнеры или пакеты?

Системный администратор. 2017. № 6-7. С. 19-23.

Many third party applications installed in a Linux system only requires a minimal base components from the target distribution and it is logical to put them intsome isolated environment which will guarantee additional stability and safety - for example, in case when application libraris overrided the system ones.

Container (more particular - isolation techniques that are present in the modern Linux kernel) is a good candidate for such environment. Distributiong applications as container sets beceome more and more popular nowadays. Howerver, traditional package managers that are currently used to manage software in most Linux distributions can be hardly integrated with containers. In this paper we will describe possible alternatives and their integration with existing Linux variations.
