Analyst(s): Consult the Board Research Team


This summary contains input from twenty-three members regarding their use of container services and vendors. We begin this summary by examining members' use of container services. Next, we discuss the scale of members' containerization efforts, including the percentage use of applications running on their internally-developed containers. We then analyze leading vendors and their respective orchestration services that members currently use, along with members' upcoming plans for change in vendors or shifts in workload percentage shares. Finally, we close this summary by examining members' container strategies, approaches to vendors' containerization efforts, and use of Windows Server containers.
