Global Application Container Market 2017-2021

About Application Container

An application container allows a user to run a single or thousands of applications from a single server on a single copy of the operating system. Containers have features including security, compliance, and scalability. Containers enable agile development and microservice architectures. Microservice architectures enable businesses to develop and roll out new digital offerings faster with the support of the agile development methodology.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Application Container Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global application container market: AWS, Docker, Google, and Microsoft.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: CoreOS, Mesosphere, Nimble Storage, Red Hat, VMware, BlueData, Cisco, Draios (Sysdig platform), IBM, Joyent, Apprendra (Acquires Kismatic, an enterprise Kubernetes support company), Portworx, Rancher Labs (Rancher platform), Twistlock, and Weaveworks.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is rapid adoption of hybrid cloud technology. Hybrid cloud computing is basically a cloud computing deployment model that uses a blend of private and public cloud solutions. The idea behind the implementation of a hybrid cloud computing model is to provide flexibility in the cloud environment. Organizations can store their sensitive and confidential information on private cloud systems; other less sensitive information and data can be hosted on a public cloud space provided by CSPs such as AWS and Google. The hybrid cloud computing model can also be extended to mix two or more than two types of cloud computing deployment models.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing volume of data generated by the adoption of IoT. The growing number of connected devices will lead to the generation of large blocks of data. Ideas like a connected car, connected home, connected healthcare, and smart cities are gaining popularity. Industries like manufacturing, utility, retail, automotive, and social media are using IoT for the increased volume of data transfer. By 2021, IoT-enabled devices will escalate the data center traffic by around 40 times, which is an exponential growth. Data centers are constantly upgrading and constructing to meet the demand for IoT data storage and processing. IoT will give an impetus to the establishment of large data centers, especially Internet service provider (ISPs) and social media organizations, along with construction of data centers facilities at the edge.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is concerns over managing cloud environments. The cloud environment has become more complex by striving to meet the growing needs of end-users. This is mainly because the management of many technologies on a single platform has become a difficult task. Cloud management software is used to maintain stability across diverse cloud operations. Cloud management involves challenges such as maintaining efficiency across multiple abstraction levels and resource types as well as dynamism. Enterprises use many technologies for their cloud deployments, and the simultaneous management of these technologies requires software products that can work across different platforms, infrastructures, and applications.
