  Nowadays modern accelerators are starting to use virtualization to implement their control systems. Following this idea, one of the possibilities is to use containers. Containers are highly scalable, easy to produce/reproduce, easy to share, resilient, elastic and low cost in terms of computational resources. All of those are characteristics that fit with the necessities of a well defined and versatile control system. In this paper, a control structure based on this paradigm is discussed. Firstly the technologies available for this task are briefly compared. Starting from containerizing tools and following with the container orchestration technologies. As a result Kubernetes and Docker are selected. Then, the basis of Kubernetes/Docker and how it fits into the control of an accelerator is stated. Following the control applications suitable to be containerized are analyzed. It includes electronic log systems, archiving engines, middleware servers,… Finally, a particular structure for an accelerator based on EPICS as middleware is sketched.
