Cisco, Docker jointly offer cloud, data center modernization solutions

Cisco network technolgy for CIOs

Cisco announced a partnership with container platform developer Docker  to deliver essential container capabilities for application-centric data center and cloud infrastructure.

Under the partnership, customers can modernize applications using Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) with Docker Datacenter, and deliver them across Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and Cisco validated Converged Infrastructure solutions with Cisco partners.

Cisco and Docker will deliver unified and certified solutions for the entire application journey, whether organizations are containerizing traditional applications, refactoring applications to microservices, or creating new applications.

According to a joint statement, key benefits of the partnership are  reduced complexity for improved manageability and automation, leveraging the unified, highly scalable architecture of Cisco UCS, with consistent management across all computing environments — traditional and modern.
