Why All Containers Won’t Be Successful

Containers have been a hot topic in 2016—and while they’re garnering interest and momentum, we’re very early on in terms of market maturity.

EMC Helps Bring Persistent Storage Access to Apache Mesos

MesosCon Europe kicks off October 8 and we’re proud to be part of the news and new technology announced at the show. In collaboration with Mesosphere, creators of the Datacenter Operating System (DCOS), we’re announcing two new open source projects for external storage volume support within Apache Mesos architectures that will be available as common services in the Mesosphere DCOS. Mesos has been getting increased traction in the “DevOps” community as an open source data center management platform that, among other things, supports container technology such as Docker.

DevOps is a broad term used in the tech industry today. Chances are, if you’ve read about DevOps, or just followed tech news, you’ve encountered the concept of containers. Containers are a technology that encapsulates software with everything it needs to run (code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and more). Since all the essentials are “contained,” the software will run the same no matter what platform it is used on.  Containers tend to lean into a large focus area for customers of EMC’s Emerging Technologies Division, where infrastructure is frictionless, portable, and run as software.
