Sysdig announces 2018 docker usage report

Sysdig, Inc., the cloud-native intelligence company, has announced the release of the second annual Docker Usage Report, a comparison of how a broad cross-section of vertical industries and companies have adopted and are using containers, microservices, and modern cloud-native components in their environments, the company said.

This includes organizations ranging in size from mid-market to large enterprises across North America, Latin America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific. The report findings are from a point-in-time snapshot of container and Kubernetes usage as reported by the Sysdig monitoring and security cloud services.

Sysdig is the only platform to offer unified security, monitoring, and forensics for containers and microservices, giving users a robust view of the health of their cloud-native applications. The report aggregates data from 90,000 containers — twice the sample size of last year — delivering unique insight into real-world production use of containers.

The results of this year´s study show momentum across the Docker container ecosystem year-over-year. As more organizations transition to DevOps and microservices models, and expertise in the “modern stack” increases, Sysdig sees more activity, more scale, and a greater need for understanding the pieces that work well together.
