    The Enterprise IT checklist for Docker Operations

    Mon Nov 13

    At Docker, we believe the best insights come from the developers and IT pros using the Docker platform every day.

Second, most enterprises believe that Docker is at the center of their IT platform. Finally, most enterprises’ biggest challenge is moving their containerized applications to production in time to prove value. My DockerCon talk focused on addressing the third item, which seems to be a critical one for many of our customers.

In addition Continue reading...
