II Deploying Identity Manager Containers

This section guides you through the process of deploying Identity Manager components using containers.

Identity Manager provides the flexibility of deploying Identity Manager components through a containerized mechanism. Identity Manager uses Docker for managing containers. The Identity Manager components, that support containerization, are delivered as Docker images. The Docker images are self-sufficient to run on their own.

All the functionalities and operations that can be achieved through the enterprise mode of installation are also available through the containerized mechanism.

However, the advantage of using containers is the ability to perform a fresh installation with every new version of containers along with the option of updating from previous versions. NetIQ recommends you to directly use the 4.8.4 version of containers if you are using containers for the first time.
