The explosion of interest in Linux containers and Docker containers is transforming how applications are deployed and managed in data centers and the cloud. After months of primary research on this market, we have published our first report on this market: Inside the Linux Container Ecosystem.
Our survey and market analysis outlines how a large ecosystem of Linux container (LXC) and Docker networking, security, and NFV tools will be needed to fill in the requirements for using Linux containers in data centers and application development environments.
This market is expanding rapidly with a range of management tools, including those for tracking container development, monitoring performance, beefing up security, analyzing applications performance, and providing general management and orchestration platforms. We’ve drilled down into every area to bring you the hottest companies and technologies. The report lists the most important players and products. More than $300 million has been invested in Linux container startups, according to Docker Inc. Inside the Linux Container Ecosystem explains all of the evolving areas of container technology and the players in each areas.

But that’s not all! This report also explain how container technology is penetrating the telecommunications market, where it’s going to be used for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). Service providers are looking to accelerate the deployment of new network services to support their revenue and growth objectives, and they see container technology as a key way to do that. We tell you how.
