New Container & Docker Container Products

Focus On Containers has developed this database of new container & Docker container products to provide container development professionals with articles, press releases and analysis on the development and deployment of latest container apps and technologies.

We have posted submitted and republished press releases that focus on topics such as Amazon containers, VMware containers, EC2 containers, and Docker Swarm vs. the Kubernetes open source container cluster management project. Along with the releases, our analysts breakdown the key elements so you can quickly learn about the latest developments in the container and Docker container industry.

Here is a sample of the most recent press releases and our analysis:

KuberDock Delivers Docker App Hosting

Focus on Container analysis: In a positive move for Docker, CloudLinux has released KuberDock, an platform for service providers to host 70,000-plus Docker applications from Docker Hub for small and mid-sized businesses. KuberDock went into beta in July 2015. Launching KuberDock takes a matter of hours, says CloudLinux CEO Igor Seletskiy, and service providers’  tech requirements differ from enterprise requirements because hosting firms must respond to divergent demands from many small customers. KuberDock’s container orchestration framework, which takes only hours to set up, was built for service providers and supports multi-tenant environments for hosting Docker containers. Read more

Docker Datacenter Selected by Leading Enterprises to Deliver Application Lifecycle Agility and Operational Control

Source:  Docker Inc. – We continue to wait for Docker enterprise users to show us what they’re doing – that they are working on large production applications managed by Docker type container capability – right now it is still a chick and egg question – what products are needed and  are they ready for prime time?  As for containers as a service – Others have tried this – to make an open source product into an “as a service” but the jury isn’t out yet it is hard to say whether this strategy will be successful..  It’s hard to gauge whether or not enterprises are asking for this (since there are only a few enterprises onboard.  In any case, it’s probably a good idea to do this since Docker (the company) clearly has the resources to bring out a service offering.
