Docker has gone from being a hot enterprise tech startup to an ecosystem that accelerates the delivery of distributed applications. And the year 2014 had many milestones that shaped the fast-changing containerization landscape. We have outlined the partnerships, releases, announcements and competition related to the Docker ecosystem in the year 2014 through this infographic (Click on the image to enlarge it)
If you haven’t already thought about leveraging Docker, now is the time, and we can help. WaveMaker provides a Docker-based software platform for simplifying and optimizing Docker on public and private infrastructures.
Contact us for a quick demo of WaveMaker’s Docker PaaS to show how you can easily leverage Docker.
What is Docker?
Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Docker makes use of containers which encapsulate application code and make it easy to move applications from one server to another without changing any of the code.
Docker containerization is gaining rapid popularity with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) developers because of clear benefits such as simplified and continuous app delivery. Enterprise developers also want to leverage Docker for easy provisioning and efficient testing, but IT has unique needs that Docker does not solve out-of-the-box, such as security and access control, supporting heterogeneous infrastructure, apps and app stacks, backup and recovery, visibility and monitoring, and integration.
How is WaveMaker involved?
WaveMaker has been working on Docker for well over a year now to build a platform to extract the value out of Docker. In December 2014,WaveMaker released WaveMaker Cloud, a Docker-architected PaaS platform that helps IT simplify, leverage and manage Docker and surrounding technologies for enterprise unique needs.
