Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Docker have signed a partnership that will result in HPE bundling Docker's container software into much of its hardware, including servers and hyperconverged systems. More specifically, HPE's ProLiant, Apollo, Cloudline, Synergy, BladeSystem and Converged System products will be part of its container-ready program. The two companies will also work together on engineering, services and sales.
"This collaboration helps businesses transform and modernize their datacenters to benefit from a more agile development environment," blogged Bradley Wong, director of product marketing for Docker. "With new Docker-ready HPE servers, IT organizations have the ability to easily move from test/dev to production and achieve a highly available, secure environment at enterprise scale for Dockerized applications that work with HPE’s extensive enterprise management tools."
