NEW RESEARCH: Understanding containers – Docker, but who else?

Containers have progressed from being a relatively niche technology just a few years ago to becomicontainersng the method of choice for developing new workloads in the cloud. Furthermore, some believe they will largely displace virtual machines as the preferred way of operating workloads, whether on-premise or in the cloud.

The recent interest in containers is largely attributed to the efforts of Docker, which took the containers concept and built a platform that made it simple to create and deploy workloads in containers.

In this research note we examine some of the key players and the opportunities and challenges they face. The research note will help you understand the main use cases, how Docker’s platform compares with the others, and how the market opportunities are shaping up.
