IDC Innovators for the 2016 Container Technology Market Announced

International Data Corporation (IDC) has published its 2016 IDC Innovators report recognizing pioneering players in the container technology market. IDC Innovators are companies with under $50 million in revenue that offer an inventive technology and/or groundbreaking new business model. 

CoreOS Inc., Docker, and Mesosphere were all named as IDC Innovators in container technology for 2016.

"There are a significant number of emerging companies focused on building, orchestrating, and supporting containers in a variety of ways. And of course, well-established companies in related infrastructure are also scrambling to support container technology with their existing portfolio," said Al Gillen, group vice president, Enterprise Infrastructure. "These emerging players represent three good examples of companies that are likely to help change the industry as we know it. Containers make it practical to create and deploy applications in a microservices format that are usable and manageable, accessible through stable APIs, and individually upgradeable without impact to other container-based microservices."

CoreOS promises to bring Google-like infrastructure to enterprise customers that don't care to deploy directly into the Google Compute Engine cloud. The company is part of the growing, and increasingly competitive container construction, deployment and orchestration/management market. Mesosphere is competing in the quickly emerging container orchestration and management market. Docker has revolutionized the way applications are architected and deployed, thanks to its innovative and developer-friendly packaging format that makes it practical to build modular, microservice-oriented applications.

IDC Innovators: Container Technology, 2016 (IDC #US41231716) profiles select companies in the container technology market with an innovative technology or a groundbreaking new business model or both. The IDC Innovators research document examines companies with revenue of less than $50 million with a product, service or business model with a specific use case.
