Containerization is the future of IT. Docker is the world’s leading containerization platform. The system wraps a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries. This guarantees that the software will always run the same, regardless of its environment.
While containers and virtual machines share similar resource isolation and allocation benefits, containers are more portable and efficient thanks to a different architectural approach. Here’s a rundown of a container’s main attributes.
The Docker Datacenter technology provides an out of the box CaaS environment with integrated workflows to build, manage and deploy applications. With an integrated technology platform that spans across the application lifecycle with tooling and support for both developers and IT operations, Docker Datacenter delivers a secure software supply chain at enterprise scale.
Here’s Docker in a nutshell:
- Highly efficient
Containers start instantly and use less RAM. Images are constructed from layered filesystems, making disk usage and image downloads much more efficient.
- Open standard
Docker containers are based on open standards, enabling containers to run on all major Linux distributions and on Microsoft Windows – and on top of any infrastructure.
- Added layer of protection for applications
Because containers isolate applications from one another and the underlying infrastructure, security is guaranteed.
- Highly scalable
Spin up and down in seconds to scale application services according to customer demand.
Benefits of Docker Datacenter
- Speed up application development
Docker Datacenter helps developers build and ship applications 13x faster and gives IT Ops the flexibility to respond to changing business needs. Additionally, Dockers helps reduce developer onboarding time by up to 65%.
- No developer constraints
Use the best language and tools for application services without worrying about causing internal tooling conflicts.
- Minimize costs
Minimize costs for maintaining and supporting existing applications. The platform also empowers IT ops to securely orchestrate, manage, and deploy Dockerized applications, at scale.
- No more environment inconsistencies
Packaging an application in a container with its configs and dependencies guarantees that the application will always work as designed in any environment.
- Ship 7x more
On average, Docker users ship 7x more software after deploying Docker in their environment. More frequent software updates provide added value to customers.
- Quickly identify and fix issues
Docker makes it easy to identify issues, isolate the problem container, quickly roll back to make the necessary changes, and then push the updated container into production without disrupting the infrastructure.
