We live in the era of the agile transformation and DevOps culture adoption. Organizations start to realize that they need to move from the legacy world to the new IT, where speed to market and agility are on the foreground. However, every good transformation needs an enabler and that is the role of Docker technology in this ecosystem. Continuous deployment in shorter cycles, reduced infrastructure costs, faster and agile applications, no infrastructure lock-ins, promotion of microservices architectures, application portability, highly available and self-healing clusters and consistent environments are only a few of the benefits of using container technology. More importantly, it is the tool to achieve the necessary mindset change when it comes to bridging the gap between developers, operations and business towards increasing speed to market, scalability and cost optimization while decreasing technical debt, costs and infrastructure resources.
