How a PaaS Can Accelerate Your Docker Deployment
The pace of technological change is now much faster than the speed of tech leaders’ decision making. In a recent study from RackSpace, nearly two-thirds of IT decision makers said they had invested in tech that was never even used because of the unprecedented pace. New industries are popping up every day and tools like Docker are reshaping how IT decision-makers approach running and managing applications.
Nearly every major enterprise understands that containerization is imperative to paving the path to faster application development and deployment. And most major enterprises are at least in the discovery stage - clear on the value of Docker, yet fuzzy on how to quickly and efficiently get there. They’re clamoring to determine exactly how a deployment would look in their specific complex and diverse environment.
Though Docker certainly can make life easier in the long term, most individuals who’ve implemented it wouldn’t consider it easy to get into a production environment. An enterprise with a complex ecosystem of diverse apps running on various technologies that need to be deployed globally on mixed infrastructure (cloud, bare metal, etc) has an even bigger challenge. The fastest way to quickly take advantage of Docker in this type of enterprise is by working with trusted experts that can provide not only the platform, but the guidance and support enterprises need.
Platform as a Service is not new. It has been around for years and has continued to play an important role in enabling rapid application deployment. This does not change with the rise of Docker. PaaS is still the fastest way to actually adopt and use Docker inside of your enterprise.
Not only does a PaaS give you the tools to accelerate your adoption of Docker but also allows you to save time and money on building in-house expertise around the technology. This time and money is extremely important because at the end of the day what you're looking to do is release great applications to your customers, not spend time and money on expanding DevOps.
