FALLS CHURCH, Va., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CSRA Inc. (NYSE: CSRA), a leading provider of next-generation IT solutions and professional services to government organizations, today announced it has developed a strategic alliance with Docker, the leading provider of open container platforms. Partnering with Docker will enable CSRA's federal government customers to move to the cloud or manage applications across multiple environments more quickly and efficiently than ever before. The strategic partnership will enable customers to easily modernize legacy applications, while lowering development and support costs, and gaining flexibility.
"The powerful combination of CSRA and Docker will address an overwhelming need in our customer base to package applications in a way that they can run anywhere, such as in a public or a private cloud, or in a true hybrid environment," said Larry Prior, CSRA president and CEO. "Creating container-based platforms helps our customers realize efficiencies in their end-to-end applications lifecycle because applications can be built faster, with flexibility and scalability, resulting in reduced complexity and increased performance for demanding enterprise workloads. We also expect customers to be able to lower their operations costs by leveraging greater automation afforded by the Docker relationship."
Docker allows for an extremely high degree of application portability and agility, and lends itself to highly scalable applications. Applications and services can be packaged as images that run in their own portable containers and can move between physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure without requiring any modification. The ability to ship applications between physical, virtualized and cloud environments afforded by the Docker ecosystem marks an important milestone in modern computing.
CSRA invests in strategic alliances that complement and enhance the company's broad range of next-generation information technology services and solutions. CSRA leverages these partnerships to support its federal government customers in finding products that best meet their strategic, business, technical and environmental requirements.
