Hi Sara,

It is doable if your container app is implemented as secondary process. 
You can connect container apps via ring PMD by sharing hugepage between 
host and container.

I have tried to deploy my application on container environment. Some 
examples of Dockerfiles or docker commands are explained in my material 
here. I hope it will be some help.
