Container Management and Enterprise Adoption Go Big at DockerCon17

Skytap is headed to DockerCon in Austin, Texas next week, and we wanted to share some of the places where you can check out Skytap’s powerful new container management offering, how you can register for our “Docker, DevOps, and Reality” panel and cocktail party, and some of the week’s incredible sessions that we’re most looking forward to attending!

Live Demo of Skytap Container Management
We announced the GA of our brand new container management tool last week, and just in time to demo it live at DockerCon!

Containerized and non-containerized traditional workloads living side by side in Skytap

This new feature enables organizations to simplify and speed up application modernization journeys by providing IT with the ability to develop, deploy, and manage containerized and non-containerized application components side-by-side in a single cloud environment. By integrating with everything from popular orchestration tools like Docker Swarm and Kubernetes, we help enterprise teams continue to use their preferred tooling to make containerization as seamless as possible.

We’re sponsoring DockerCon Day 1’s lunch on Tuesday, April 18th, so look out for our pop-up booth, where we’ll share some more of the exciting capabilities with Skytap Container Management. We’ll also be giving away some highly sought-after swag as well as invitations to our exciting panel and cocktail party later in the week!
