VMworld attendees get to the Docker booth to save money & time like Visa.

The Docker booth is right beside the Nutanix booth at VMworld this year so I have seen lots of people there but not 23,000 but there should be. Docker had been apart of all the announcements if you realized it our not. Lots of talk about Google with Kubernetes. Kubernetes still requires Docker as the container engine so whether it’s Swarm or Kubernetes you’re going to be using Docker. If you want Enterprise support Docker is both you want to be visiting and learning what they can do to develop better end to end software while saving you money.

With Docker EE has been in production at Visa for over 6 months and is seeing improvements in a number of ways:

Provisioning time: Visa can now provision in seconds rather than days even while more application teams join the effort. They can also deliver just-in-time infrastructure across multiple datacenters around the world with a standardized format that works across their diverse set of applications.
Patching & maintenance: With Docker, Visa can simply redeploy an application with a new image. This also allows Visa to respond quickly to new threats as they can deploy patches across their entire environment at one time.
Tech Refresh: Once applications are containerized with Docker, developers do not have to worry about the underlying infrastructure; the infrastructure is invisible.
Multi-tenancy: Docker containers provides both space and time division multiplexing by allowing Visa to provision and deprovision microservices quickly as needed. This allows them to strategically place new services into the available infrastructure which has allowed the team to support 10x the scale they could previously.

Visa moved a VM-based environment to containers running on bare metal and saved the time to provision and decommissioned its first containerized app by 50%.By saving time and money on the existing infrastructure and applications, organizations can reinvest the savings — both the time and money — in transforming the business.

BTW Nutanix can do bare-metal or run AHV to provide great experience for containers with our own Docker Volume plugin.
