SDxCentral recently ran the 2016 Container Survey, which collected the feedback of 101 users of technology in enterprises and service providers. As summarized earlier, we found lots of enthusiasm for container technology, with 76% of respondents evaluating the technology, 56% looking at different solutions, and 20% of the respondents actively testing and piloting. This comes in contrast with the fact that only 7% of those surveyed have already deployed container technology, indicating that indeed, 2016, may be the year of deployments. Less than a fifth (17%) of respondents said they are not considering container technology for their environment.
Below is more detailed information we gathered from users, including feedback about where they see containers working, the challenges, and who they perceive as leaders in the container ecosystem.
