Think About It

Our friends at CA Technologies recently shared some survey results with us: As application containerization adoption continues to rise, new types of challenges emerge. Despite their benefits, containerized application environments have created exponential complexity in cloud-based application management and monitoring. While Docker popularity is rising, more than 50% of organizations surveyed say their use of Docker container technology is "just getting started." Primary use cases at this time include app development and testing. And the business impact of Docker container performance is largely unmeasured today. More than half of executives (56%) said they are not monitoring Docker container performance problems for business impact yet.
