We recently hosted IDC research manager Gary Chen as a guest speaker on a webinar where he shared results from a recent IDC survey on container and container platform adoption in the enterprise. IDC data shows that more organizations are deploying applications into production using containers, driving the need for container platforms like Docker Enterprise that integrate broad management capabilities including orchestration, security and access controls. The audience asked a lot of great questions about both the IDC data and containerizing production applications. We picked the top questions from the webinar and recapped them here. If you missed the webinar, you…

  The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations enterprises an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher. In this review, we’re looking at solutions to monitor Docker containers. Docker enables developers to iterate faster with software architectures consisting of many microservices. This poses a challenge to traditional monitoring solutions as the target processes are no longer statically allocated or tied to particular…

As container technology adoption continues to advance and mature, companies now recognize the importance of an enterprise container platform. More than just a runtime for applications, a container platform provides a complete management solution for securing and operationalizing applications in containers at scale over the entire software lifecycle. While containers may have revolutionized the way developers package applications, container platforms are changing the way enterprises manage and secure both mission-critical legacy applications and microservices both on prem and across multiple clouds. Enterprises are beginning to see that container runtime and orchestration technologies alone don’t address these critical questions: Where did this…

Ever since Microsoft CVP Erin Chapelle spoke about the future of Windows Containers at DockerCon earlier this year, there has been excitement around the general availability of Windows Server 2019. That announcement came last week at the Microsoft Ignite Conference in Orlando. Ignite was a tremendous opportunity for us to discuss the containerization journey with companies of all shapes and sizes. A central theme: what to do with large numbers of applications running today on Windows Server 2008, an operating system that will reach the end of its supported lifecycle in a mere 15 months. Here are some common questions discussed last…

The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize containers and plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher.   In this review, we’re looking at Docker Volume Plugins. In any production Docker Enterprise  deployment, it is important to have the ability to manage storage for persistent applications. While it is  possible to use traditional SAN and NAS solutions directly with Docker Enterprise with Swarm orchestration, it is actually much easier and more convenient to…
