A Container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computer environment to another (Docker website). The benefits include quick delivery and feedback and lower release risk. 

Turbonomic discovers Containers through Kube-Turbo targets that run in your Kubernetes cluster (see also Container Pod, Container Spec, Workload Controller, and Namespace).
