I suspect that he was equating "containers" with "Docker," which both
runs containers and also is an image management solution (one that I
don't particularly like, but probably because I don't have heavy needs
so I find myself fighting it more than anything else - it doesn't hurt
that for the life of me I can't get it to connect containers to my
bridge, and it seems like it is completely opposed to just using DHCP
to obtain IPs).
But, if you're using Docker, sure, you can run whatever the command is
to download an image of a container with some software pre-installed
and run it.
If you're using something other than Docker to manage your containers
then you still have to get the software you want to use installed in
your container image.
