Overall Satisfaction with Docker

My organization has a customer base of around 40 million users. All the users are serviced using a massive cloud solution. This cloud solution is implemented on the Docker swarm. The docker swarm has hundreds of dockers images. All of them implemented highly available to 99.99%Docker has greatly reduced our IT costs. Spinning new instances is very easy and we have layered images that can be shared across the org. saving millions of dollars in IT costs. Further, it has made DevOps very easy thus enhancing customer experience.
  • Enable Devops
  • Allow the layering of linux images
  • Remove dependency on Virtual Images
  • Enable serverless architecture
  • It will be nice to see an admin UI for configuration of images
  • Container networking can be simplified
  • Data storage/volume management can be simplified
  • Orchestration of solution/container management using docker swarm
  • High availability which is offered by the docker using docker swarm
  • The automatic load balancing
  • Docker has a positive impact on ROI. By lowering IT costs. We don't need VM(s) anymore
  • Predictable deployments has led to enhanced developer productivity
  • Lower time to deployment and troubleshoot issues has led to enhanced customer experiences
Docker provides is effective container management and orchestration platform. It is highly suitable for Linux environments and allows the easy and quick deployment of production applications Other alternatives use replication and management of the virtual machines. Docker provides lightweight containers and easy management of those containers. Our org. has embraced the use of lightweight containers to reduce the IT costs so for our need Docker is more suitable.

I highly recommend use of dockers as an alternative to use of virtual machines. Docker is specifically very suitable for organizations who want to:
- Move towards the use of micro-services architecture
- Simplify the deployments and reduce the surprises during prod. deployments
- Enhance the devops practise Docker though can be used in almost all the different IT environments however org. who have monolithic architectures will not see much of the benefit.
