IBM Containers makes Docker enterprise-ready

Deploy in hybrid environments

Deploy in hybrid environments

IBM Containers enable you to more quickly and easily package and deploy applications that you want to run across environments. Run many more applications on the same servers to improve resource utilization.

Ship software faster and more often

Ship software faster and more often

IBM Containers eliminate the need to change or reconfigure applications for different environments, accelerating application development by precluding environment-related failures.

Achieve maximum portability

Achieve maximum portability

With IBM Containers applications are seamlessly portable across environments and computing platforms, so you can move freely to, from, and between Linux-based cloud environments. And we don’t add proprietary code to the Docker engine or registry.

Networking support

Networking support

Privately network your containers by using real IP addresses, configured for each in a single step.

Private Docker image registry

Private Docker image registry

With a hosted private registry, ensuring access is both secure and auditable, you can securely store and share Docker images across your organization, allowing users to push and pull containers on- and off-premises.

Integration with Bluemix

Integration with Bluemix

Choose from more than 150 IBM, third-party, and community services to extend the functionality of your application, easily binding Watson Personality Insights or Internet of Things, for example, to your containerized application.

Enterprise-ready images

Enterprise-ready images

Along with any image from the Docker Hub, you can use images of WebSphere Liberty, MobileFirst Platform, StrongLoop Process Manager, and Node.js runtime in IBM Containers.

How it works

IBM Containers adapts Docker technology to enterprise application development

A Docker container is virtual server object that holds a stack of software images necessary to run a specific application in a cloud computing environment. Based on Docker technology, the IBM Containers service extends the benefits of resource allocation and isolation across public and private deployments, providing a private registry for your Docker images and the tools necessary to manage the entire life cycle of containerized applications you deploy in the cloud.

Create a continuous integration and delivery pipeline

With your organization’s namespace in IBM Containers, and the flexibility to use containers with preferred coding languages, management tools, and operating systems, you can create and automate a build-and-deploy pipeline as the foundation for your team’s continuous integration and delivery processes.
