Yesterday, at Red Hat's annual North America Partner Conference (in Orlando, FL), Dave Bartoletti, principal analyst with Forrester Research, told hundreds of attendees about a recently completed market research program undertaken by Forrester and sponsored by Red Hat. In this study, 194 developers and IT decision-makers at mid- to large-size companies were surveyed as to their plans and expectations for container technologies.
What they shared, indicates that
users/decision makers expect significant benefits from containers, including better security, greater application portability, and faster application development and delivery.
Forrester's research in this area will be finalized shortly and we're looking forward to its publication later next month. In the mean time, for additional information on containers, click here.
