The container revolution is under way today as companies seek to move faster and build digital assets to support growth. IDC forecasts that there will be over 1.8 billion enterprise container instances deployed by 2021. Container platforms will be key to managing the ever-expanding diversity of IT environments (multiple operating systems, hypervisors, private clouds, and public clouds). While containers are the perfect vehicle to underpin cloud-native, microservices applications, containers are also well suited to many existing applications. These applications can reap immediate benefits from being modernized and prepare for possible refactoring over time. To successfully leverage containers in these diverse scenarios and do it at scale, enterprises will need a robust, integrated, and holistic container platform.
