Containers: To buy or to build?

Container adoption is accelerating rapidly, with Gartner predicting this year more than 50% of new workloads will be deployed into containers. Existing IT infrastructure has been optimized for virtualized applications and may not efficiently support containers. As your organization navigates the transition from virtualization, you’ll need infrastructure that addresses the unique needs of a container environment.

Given the increasing pressure on IT teams, you’ll want to consider carefully whether you will buy or build your infrastructure stack to support containers. As with any infrastructure decision, there are a number of factors to consider:

  • Solution components
  • Deployment time
  • Management complexity
  • Scalability
  • Total cost of ownership

Download this informative report to learn the strengths and weaknesses of DIY, virtual machine, and bare-metal infrastructure for containers.
