Is your IT foundation blocking your container potential?
Big innovations like cars, radios—even vacuum cleaners—happened in the early 20th century. Why? The assembly line. It's an infrastructure that supported (even spurred) entrepreneurs' inventions. Without it, these creations might have been stifled.
Similarly, in programming today, innovations made possible by lightweight Linux® containers are curbed by legacy infrastructure. The pace at which IT innovates is capped by the limits of old servers, virtualization environments, and operating systems. But ripping out your infrastructure isn't the answer. A more practical solution is to update your IT foundation with container-compatible platforms that work across the systems you have and the environments you want to adopt.
You need flexibility and agility, 2 fundamental traits of open source.

"Open source is the driving force behind... Linux containers"
Many of the applications running our world are built on open source. Small startups are adopting containers for their agility, while global tech companies see containers as a powerful DevOps alternative. As container adoption spreads to more businesses, the importance of an open source foundation will only grow.
Learn more about the role of open source in containers and what to look for in a vendor from Paul Cormier, president of Products and Technologies at Red Hat.
