Forrester surveyed 195 manager-level and above IT decision makers at North American and European enterprises that have adopted containers.
Detailed Report is located here : Containers: Real Adoption And Use Cases In 2017 below are the key takeaways from the report.
#1. Container volume is growing.
Containers have exploded in popularity as organizations recognize benefits to both time and resource efficiency. Sixty-three percent of enterprises using containers have over 100 deployed, and 82% expect to have more than 100 containers deployed within the next two years.
#2. Container environments are not islands in the data center,its cross-platform
Containers aren’t exclusively being used in a single-cloud deployment type. In fact, there’s adoption cross-platform, with respondents claiming container usage across private (82%), public (53%), and traditional on-premises infrastructure (36%)
#3.Containers facilitate application modernization.
Older, core applications tend to be monolithic and interdependent on layers of architecture and do not fit with a DevOps strategy that values quick,agile iterations enabled by a microservice-based architecture.
#4.Security remains a key concern.
The biggest issue with a “build once, run everywhere” application is the pervasive concern that an infected kernel can affect many containers, as opposed to virtual machines, which are fully isolated from each other.
#5.Microservices are still in the “cool concept” category rather than an organizational imperative.
Microservices and containers should go hand in hand, yet many microservices strategies lag behind. Only 48% of organizations using containers also leverage a microservices based architecture.
