Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced a strategic alliance with Docker covering sales, go-to-market, engineering, support, services and knowledge sharing for enterprise data center solutions.
Specifically, HPE is launching a Docker ready server program, which ensures HPE servers are bundled with Docker Engine and support.
"In order to survive and thrive in the idea economy, companies must transform the IT experience so that lines of business and developers can innovate faster, smarter and fearlessly," said Antonio Neri, executive vice president and general manager, Enterprise Group, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "Hewlett Packard Enterprise is innovating across its entire datacenter portfolio to help customers with that transformation. Together with Docker, we are making it easier for IT to deploy and manage containers, while giving organizations solutions that optimize their investments and power a new generation of applications that are the business."
"The default availability of Docker's technology on every HPE server and HPE's hyper-converged platform enables enterprises to take advantage of the benefits of containerization while leveraging their investments in existing systems and process," said Ben Golub, CEO of Docker. "Having a strategic alliance that starts with Docker Engine but extends to include our commercial end-to-end platform, Docker Datacenter, provides HPE customers with a comprehensive solution that covers all of their requirements over time. Enterprises leveraging this joint solution can achieve immediate efficiencies while focusing on existing applications, which can include a 20X optimization on their infrastructure, while shipping their applications 13X faster."
