Why are there two container images for Microgateway?

Airlock Microgateway uses the Kubernetes init container concept, which uses one container for configuration generation and one for runtime deployment.

To minimize the resource footprint of the runtime container, Airlock Microgateway is split into two containers:

  1. Microgateway Configbuilder container
  2. Microgateway Runtime container
