If you are building a simple web application and want to bypass all of the basic building blocks (authentication & authorization, multi-tenant, etc, etc.), then ABP Commercial will allow you to do this very quickly with their tooling. It is also an excellent tool if you are building a large complicated SAAS product, as long as you are willing to invest the time required to understand the 'why' behind their architectural decisions and follow their methods throughout your development.

[Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)] is the most advanced tool till now, which works as a VMs
and separates any single application from the dependencies. Also, this tool is
helping me in the agile development of the processes. It is strongly recommended to
almost all major organizations.

Mirantis
  • Containers - Docker is the go-to when using Containers, which are super useful if you need an environment that works both for Windows and Linux
  • Efficiency - Docker is very lightweight and doesn't demand too much from your CPU or server
  • CI/CD - Docker is excellent for plumbing into your build pipeline. It integrates nicely, is reliable, and has an easy set up.

  • More modules are always welcomed

Mirantis
  • Containers are often opaque - if a container doesn't work out of the box, it's messy to fix.
  • Logging is complexified by the multiple containers and logs are often not piped to places you expect them to be.
  • Networking is complexified due to internal port mapping between containers, etc.

Docker's CLI has a lot of options, and they aren't all intuitive. And there are so many tools in the space (Docker Compose, Docker Swarm, etc) that have their own configuration as well. So while there is a lot to learn, most concepts transfer easily and can be learned once and applied across everything.

The community support for Docker is fantastic. There is almost always an answer for any issue I might encounter day-to-day, either on Stack Overflow, a helpful blog post, or the community Slack workspace. I've never come across a problem that I was unable to solve via some searching around in the community.

We've used XAMPP, PHPmyAdmin and similar local environments (our app is on PHP). Because of how easy you can change the configuration of libraries on PHP and versions (which is SO painful on XAMPP or other friendly LAMP local servers) we are using Docker right now. Also, being sure that the environment is exactly the same makes things easier for developing.

Return on Investment
Volosoft
  • We have a small team, and ABP Commercial has allowed us to build a SAAS application that is feature-rich in much less time than if we built everything from scratch.
  • ABP Commercial continues to provide benefits with every update. Keeping current on new versions of dependencies (such as .NET) requires a fraction of the work on our end since ABP Commercial updates the base framework and we can leverage that work. This was a HUGE benefit when IdentityServer4 changed from Open Source to a very expensive commercial license.

  • Docker has made it possible for us to deploy code faster, increasing the productivity of our development teams.
  • Docker has made it possible for us to decentralize our build and release system. This means that teams can deploy on their own schedule and our dev ops team can concentrate on building better tools rather than deploying for the teams
  • Docker has allowed us to virtualize our entire development process and made it much simpler to build out new data centers. This, in turn, is significantly increasing our ROI by providing a path forward for internationalization.
