Container adoption today: Advantages and challenges

Organizations today work in a continuous delivery environment, requiring speed and agility in deployment and the ability to monitor applications once deployed. These requirements are accelerating the adoption of containers in the production environment. In October, DockerCon Europe revealed that 24 billion containers have been downloaded. Not surprisingly, there’s been a corresponding 77,000% growth in Docker job listings. Why use containers? As application development teams are pressured to deliver software faster than ever, container adoption offers clear advantages. A Forrester study found that 66% of organizations who adopted containers experienced accelerated developer efficiency, while 75% of companies achieved a moderate to significant increase in application deployment speed. Got a lot of containers to secure?Download the eBook. As the saying goes, time is money. As development and operations teams deliver software without the hassle of constantly reconfiguring infrastructure, they save time and cut costs. In a different study, Forrester discovered that organizations saved upward of 70% on dev/test costs after container adoption, and 40% on production costs, while operating on 80% fewer servers. Similarly, case studies revealed that organizations who adopted containers experienced average cost savings of 50% in the production environment. Since containers do not require hypervisors, much of these savings come from a reduction in hypervisor licensing costs.
