Containers and Columns are expandable spaces that is used to house other page elements together.  You can place any page element inside of a container or a column. It’s a powerful component which lets you divide sections of a page into grid-like layouts. The difference between a Container and a Column is that a Container has only 1 expandable cell. Columns, on the other hand, can have 2 or more expandable cells side by side.
