Gartner: Answering the 10 Biggest Questions about Containers, Microservices and Docker
Insights and ideas to help you accelerate innovation and agility.
Containers have emerged as a red-hot topic among Gartner's clients. Though container technology isn't inherently unsecure, it can present significant security challenges and risks to your organization.
To help you accelerate innovation and agility, we encourage you to read this Gartner research note which answers the 10 most common questions infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders are asking about realizing the benefits of containers, microservices and Docker.
Key findings outlined by Gartner:
- The container ecosystem is complicated to understand due to the plethora of new and esoteric tools, and the unique problems they solve when compared with the traditional platforms (such as virtualization) that are well-understood by I&O.
- Enterprises are beginning to evaluate containers for traditional, monolithic applications to modernize their delivery along with the ability to run on a variety of infrastructure.
- Building and deploying cloud-native, container-based applications in production require substantive experience with architecting and managing distributed systems, which can be complex on their own.
