StackIQ announces support for Docker Community Edition and Docker Swarm for easy and accelerated deployments of Docker Containers on Bare Metal

StackIQ announced support for Docker with a new Stacki Pallet. A Stacki Pallet is a set of software packages and code that run on the Stacki framework along with specialized installation and configuration information about applications. The new Stacki Pallet for Docker enables the consistency and configuration required for a functioning Docker installation. The Stacki Pallet for Docker runs Docker Community Edition (17.03.0), and has Docker Swarm mode baked in (installs and validates it automatically).

"Docker deployments that require consistent performance and high utilization should be run on bare metal," said Joe Kaiser, Director of Open Source Engineering. "The Stacki Pallet with Docker Swarm Mode dramatically eases and accelerate Docker deployments on bare metal, taking the user from bare metal to containers in one step."

Stacki is one of the fastest bare metal provisioning tools in the industry, with users reporting deployment times accelerated from weeks (manually) to mere hours with Stacki. Stacki's bare metal cluster installer is popular in many use cases including DevOps, data center automation and refresh, lab automation and private cloud automation.

Well over a million Linux servers are under management by Stacki, and its open source sibling, the Rocks Cluster Distribution (Stacki includes software developed by the Rocks Cluster Group at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, and its contributors).
