IBM Offers Docker-based Containers on Bluemix

IBM is supporting containers based on Docker and built on Bluemix, its platform-as-a-service.

IBM said its enterprise customers will now be able to use the combination of IBM, Docker, Cloud Foundry and OpenStack to create a new generation of portable distributed applications.

Additionally, IBM claims the industry's best performance of Java on Docker. IBM Java is optimized to be two times faster and occupies half the memory when used with the IBM Containers Service. Moreover, as a Docker based service, IBM Containers include open features and interfaces such as the new Docker Compose orchestration services.

IBM is a member of the new Open Container Platform (OCP) Project.
