THE STATE OF CONTAINERIZATION

A Technology Adoption Profile conducted by Forrester Consulting and commissioned By Red Hat

WHERE, HOW, AND WHY ARE CONTAINERS GAINING TRACTION?

As businesses demand ever-more robust infrastructure and applications to serve increasingly discerning customers, IT professionals are hungry for tools and processes that reduce friction and shorten timelines.

Enter Linux® containers: a tried-and-true technology whose starring role in DevOps methodology means it’s in high demand today. But where and how, exactly, are containers gaining the most traction? And if they actually merit all the hype, why haven’t all organizations put them at the center of their development processes?

In May 2016, Red Hat commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how, where, and why enterprises leverage containers in the software development life cycle, as well as the barriers that exist to their broader implementation and the realization of their maximum value.

IN THIS STUDY, YOU WILL LEARN:

  • Where containers are gaining traction.
  • Why organizations are using containers.
  • What workloads are being prioritized.
  • Challenges that hinder container adoption.
  • Key requirements for successful container adoption.
