Docker EE for IBM's servers provides organisations with a flexible option for developing and deploying applications across their hybrid Cloud infrastructure that combines public and private Cloud resources. LinuxONE, z Systems and Power Systems handle business-critical applications running on the private Clouds of major organisations around the world.
"Docker Enterprise Edition is integrated, certified and supported to provide organisations with the most secure container platform for running business-critical applications in production at scale", stated Roger Egan, senior vice president of sales for Docker. "Availability for z Systems, LinuxONE and Power Systems helps cover the entire software supply chain by including the systems often at the heart of an organisation's IT infrastructure."
The offering pairs Docker EE with the advanced speed and scale of IBM's enterprise servers. LinuxONE and z Systems can support up to 1 million Docker containers on a single system. These systems also have the industry's highest levels of security and feature advanced cryptographic accelerators built into the hardware to encrypt data while maintaining high levels of performance. Power Systems can help deliver faster throughput for advanced analytics and reduced latency for more responsive apps running in containers.
"Organisations need ways to speed development for core applications without sacrificing reliability, performance and security", stated Mike Desens, vice president of offering management for z Systems and LinuxONE. "Companies can now take advantage of the capabilities of z Systems, LinuxONE and Power Systems while benefiting from the flexibility of Docker Enterprise Edition to quickly create, test and run applications."
