One Journey, All Apps

Modernize applications without disruption. From developers to IT, Windows and Linux, x86 and mainframe, on-premises to cloud, Docker is the unifying platform to modernize all apps from commercial off the shelf, homegrown traditional and microservices. With Docker, organizations can modernize applications, infrastructure and operational models by bringing forward existing IT investments while integrating new technology at the rate of business.

Modernize Traditional Apps [MTA]

Docker Enterprise Edition increase security and portability of existing apps while saving costs

Every business has a portfolio of older apps already running in their environment that is either serving customers or automating business processes. Even large scale monolithic apps benefit from Docker with enhanced security from container isolation, container portability, and reduced costs. Once containerized, these apps can be augmented with additional services or transitioned into a microservices architecture.

  • Security


    Increase app security with containers to isolate apps and guarantee safe transport with image signing and verification of the app as it travels through the lifecycle.

  • Portability


    Package everything the app needs into a container and migrate that from one VM to another, to server or cloud without having to refactor the app.

  • Cost Savings

    Cost Savings

    Increase workload density on servers and VMs to save on infrastructure costs. Gain IT operational efficiency in deployment, maintenance, scale out and roll back.

Continuous Integration and Deployment (CI / CD)

Accelerate app pipeline automation and app deployment and ship 13X more with Docker.

The modern development pipeline is fast, continuous and automated with the goal of more reliable software. Continuous Integration (CI) and Deployment (CD) allows teams to integrate new code as often as every time code is checked in by developers and passes testing. A cornerstone of devops methodology, CI/CD creates a real time feedback loop with a constant stream of small iterative changes that accelerates change and improves quality. CI environments are often fully automated to trigger a test at git push and to automatically build a new image if the test is successful and push to a Docker Registry. Further automation and scripting can deploy a container from the new image to staging for further testing.

  • Accelerate


    Docker streamlines CI testing time and scales CI testing infrastructure.

  • Integrate


    APIs, open interfaces and webhooks allow for easy integration into existing tools and processes to further automate the app pipeline.

  • Automate


    Save time and improve software quality by instantly spawning Docker hosts and containers to run more tests in parallel.


Accelerate the path to modern app architectures

App architecture is changing from monolithic code bases with waterfall development methodologies to loosely coupled services that are developed and deployed independently. Tens to thousands of these services can be connected to form an app. Docker allows developers to choose the best tool or stack for each service and isolates them to eliminate any potential conflicts and avoids the “matrix from hell.” These containers can be easily shared, deployed, updated and scaled instantly and independently of the other services that make up the app. Docker’s end to end security features allow teams to build and operate a least privilege microservices model where services only get access to the resources (other apps, secrets, compute) they need to run at just the right time to create.

  • Empower


    Developers are free to use the right tools and stacks for the app without worry of creating app conflicts

  • Innovate


    Accelerate the rate of innovation of new software features.

  • Standardize


    Gain consistency in the app environment to gain efficiency without slowing down software development

IT Infrastructure Optimization

Get more out of your infrastructure and save money

Docker and containers help optimize the utilization and cost of your IT infrastructure. Optimization not just cost reduction, it is ensuring the right amount of resources are available at the right time and used efficiently. Because containers are lightweight ways of packaging and isolating app workloads, Docker allows multiple workloads to run on the same physical or virtual server without conflict. Businesses can consolidate datacenters, integrate IT from mergers and acquisitions and enable portability to cloud while reducing the footprint of operating systems and servers to maintain.

  • Consolidate


    Containerize apps and consolidate the VMs and servers to reduce the infrastructure footprint. Consolidate datacenters from M&A or migrate to cloud.

  • Efficiency


    Reduce operational overhead of patching and maintaining additional operating systems, virtual and physical servers.

  • Optimize


    Improve resource utilization, app scalability, disaster recovery and availability.

Hybrid Cloud

Avoid Lock In and Seamlessly Move Across Clouds

Docker guarantees apps are cloud enabled - ready to move across private and public clouds with a higher level of control and guarantee apps will operate as designed. The Docker platform is infrastructure independent and ensures everything the app needs to run is packaged and transported together from one site to another. Docker uniquely provides flexibility and choice for businesses to adopt a single, multi or hybrid cloud environment without conflict.

  • Hybrid Cloud

    Hybrid Cloud

    Deploy some workloads on-premise, on bare metal, in VMs, or in any cloud provider and move them around without disruption.

  • Multi Cloud

    Multi Cloud

    Leverage several cloud infrastructure providers to deploy your container apps, based on price, SLA, or geographic availability.

  • Full Stack Portability

    Full Stack Portability

    Standard interfaces define a full app with multiple containers, networking, volumes and secrets that work the same on any infrastructure. Apps can move to new clouds without any recoding and plugins allow networking and volumes to operate with different vendors without disruption.
