Docker Datacenter Selected by Leading Enterprises to Deliver Application Lifecycle Agility and Operational Control
Enables first end-to-end on premises Container-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution to deliver application portability across any infrastructure from the datacenter to the cloud
San Francisco– February 23, 2016 – Docker, Inc., the organization behind the open platform for distributed applications, today announced Docker Datacenter (DDC), an integrated, end-to-end platform for agile application development and management at any scale. Comprised of Docker Universal Control Plane (generally available today), Docker Trusted Registry and embedded support for Docker Engine, Docker Datacenter addresses the requirements for organizations that want to manage the application lifecycle of Dockerized applications from development through production.
Enterprises are using Docker Datacenter to deploy an on-premises Containers-as-a Service (CaaS) solution. CaaS is an IT-managed and secured application environment where developers can, in a self-service manner, build and deploy applications. Some of the world’s most security-conscious organizations, like ADP, have bought and deployed Docker Datacenter to deliver a CaaS solution that provides agility for development teams, control for operations teams and portability of applications across any infrastructure, from on-premises datacenters to public clouds, across a vast array of network and storage providers.
“As part of our initiative to modernize our business-critical applications to microservices, ADP has been investigating solutions that would enable our developers to leverage a central library of IT-vetted and secured core services that they could rapidly iterate on,” said Keith Fulton, Chief Technology Officer at ADP. “Docker’s CaaS approach will enable us to drive transformation across the entire application lifecycle from development to operations. A key feature for us is the end-to-end integration with Docker Content Trust to centrally administer and control our images so that only signed and validated content can be used or deployed into a production environment. With Docker, we will be able to ensure application portability, whether it is between dev and ops or between the datacenter and the cloud.”
