With 20,000 partners and attendees converging at VMworld in Las Vegas this week, we often get asked if containers are replacing virtual machines (VMs). Many of our Docker Enterprise customers do run their containers on virtualized infrastructure while others run it on bare metal. Docker provides IT and operators choice on where to run their applications – in a virtual machine, on bare metal, or in the cloud. In this blog we’ll provide a few thoughts on the relationship between VMs and containers.  Point #1: Containers Are More Agile than VMs At this stage of container maturity, there is very little…

Last week, in the blistering heat of Las Vegas, Docker had a chance to interact with thousands of VMworld attendees to talk about containers. The message we heard again and again was that those in charge of infrastructure and virtualization are now being asked to manage containers. Sometimes it is being driven by developer teams that are already using Docker, but sometimes it is the infrastructure teams who recognize the benefits of moving applications to containers for easier maintenance and operations as well as cost savings. With Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), we have a solution that is designed to let…

Simply incredible. We spent last week at VMworld speaking with thousands of enterprise security, infrastructure and virtualization pros. It was humbling to witness all of the curiosity and excitement around Docker at the show, and how Docker clearly made a strong impression on the attendees. This curiosity around Docker and its use within enterprise environments is the reason why i’m writing this blog. We noticed that there were many of the same questions that arose, and we figured we should share them with you, as you start your journey towards adopting Docker containers and VMs. Here are the most commonly…

VMware’s announcements both today and last year at VMworld are reflective of the efforts we’re seeing among our ecosystem partners as they continue to optimize their infrastructure solutions for Dockerized applications. The approach that VMware is taking is an interesting dual-strategy; one that makes their existing vSphere solution even better for Docker, while offering a new generation of applications through a solution that is centered on their minimalist Linux OS Photon. That type of investment is great validation of how pervasive Dockerized applications have become in the enterprise since we first announced our partnership last year.
