Docker Image for HCL Digital Experience Version 9.5

While the use of containers to deploy applications are not new, containers are favored due to the ease of deploying applications like the latest version of HCL Digital Experience.

The HCL Portal container is launched by running a runtime instance of an image. An image is an executable package that includes everything needed to run the HCL Digital Experience Version 9.5 application, including the code, a runtime, libraries, environment variables, and configuration files. Because it runs a discrete process, it does not take any more memory other than the executable image with state or user process.
