StackEngine Delivers Manageability & Automation for Docker Containers

StackEngine, a start-up based in Austin, Texas, unveiled its platform to simply and massively deploy, manage, and scale resilient Docker applications.

The company says tools like Chef and Puppet were built to automate systems, not containers.  Its solution specifically targets Docker containers, providing tools to discover, visualize, and manage small- to large-scale Docker deployments. The goal is to intelligently automate change and configuration management for containers.

StackEngine also announced $1 million in seed funding from Silverton Partners and LiveOak Venture Partners.

"We deeply believe that automation is the answer to an emergent problem in Docker and container technologies," said StackEngine CEO and Co-founder Bob Quillin. "We also believe a new and radically different approach is needed. Containerization instantly shifts the problem up the stack. StackEngine bridges that gap and gives enterprises the ability to deliver product faster, deploy more frequently, operate more reliably and run wherever is most optimal."
