High adoption rate of Docker in production raises new challenges: orchestration, monitoring, and automation

Launched in March of 2013, Docker rapidly moved into the mainstream. Over 800 million Docker containers have been pulled from the public Docker Hub. But how are container technologies actually used?

Here are some of the key findings of a survey, conducted by O’Reilly Media in collaboration with Dynatrace Ruxit:

  • More than 93% of the respondents are already using or plan to use containers for development, testing, or production.
  • The majority (78%) of them are opting for Docker.
  • Fast and easy deployment is the most important reason for using Docker (85%).
  • Within the next 6-12 months, more than half (53%) of all respondents plan to adopt containers in production.
  • Reliable and production-ready solutions are required for orchestration (56%), monitoring (46%), and automation (40%).
