How portable are container images?

During our internal office discussion a question come up how portable are the containers, can i run my applications on any platform, i mean laterally any platform? x86, pc64, arm?

The question is can i? doing some research online i came across a good article on IBM developer website thought worth sharing.

The article is about how containers are portable? and provides a good understanding of three circles of container philosophy, that is portability, compatibility, and supportability.

The article is available on IBM Developer site at (Containers interoperability: How compatible is portable?)
