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 hosts. Monitoring solutions are now expected to track ephemeral and rapidly scaling sets of containers. The Docker Engine exposes APIs for container metadata, lifecycle events, and key performance metrics. Partner Monitoring solutions  collect both system and Docker container events and metrics in real time to monitor the health and performance of the customers entire infrastructure, applications and services. These solutions are validated by both Docker and the partner company and integrated into a seamless support pipeline that provide customers the world class support they have become accustomed to when working with Docker.
