Over the last 2 months we ran a short survey to collect information about Container usage. The survey was slightly shorter than the one we performed in conjunction with DevOps.com and Redmonk 6 months ago, but provides deep insight into how the container ecosystem has shifted and continued to evolve over a short period of time. Running multiple surveys gives us ability to see trends develop and as we review the results of each survey we think of new questions to ask in the next survey to dig deeper.
As anyone who has worked in IT support or operations for any period of time will tell you, if you get a call telling you that something stopped working, then the first question you should ask is “what changed?”. This is especially true if the application or server in question has been working well for sometime before.
Our friends at ContainerJournal and Devops.com are running a survey to learn how you are using containers today and your plans for the future.
If you are just looking to run a common Linux application such as Tomcat or WordPress it’s far simpler to download a pre-packaged image from DockerHub than to install the application from scratch.
We just released the first version of the open-source Anchore command-line tools and we’re excited for the container community to take a look at what we’ve done and provide feedback.
