The two companies teamed up to enable enterprises to optimize deployment of distributed applications on the IBM Cloud via the Docker open platform.

IBM and Docker, Inc. announced last week a strategic partnership that aims to help enterprises that build and run distributed applications. These companies can take full advantage of IBM Cloud and Docker's open platform which provides a repository of more than 60,000 services.

According to the official press release, "Companies will have a more efficient and effective way to build, ship and run Docker multi-container, multi-host applications in the cloud." The IBM-Docker partnership already delivered  a product, as IBM announced the beta version of IBM Containers. IBM Containers is a Docker-based container service that is part of Bluemix, IBM's open cloud platform for application development. It comes with Docker-native features and interfaces, including the new Docker orchestration services.

IBM will show a demo of the early-stage integration with the Docker open platform at DockerCon EU. In addition to the integrated services, IBM also plans to offer a standalone product. Please check the press release below for more details about this strategic partnership.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
