SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ContainerX today announced the beta launch of its comprehensive, multi-tenant container platform designed for enterprise IT admins. ContainerX will make its global debut at DockerCon Europe 2015 on November 16-17 at booth number seven.

ContainerX provides a single pane of glass for all containers allowing support for Linux and Windows, bare metal and virtual machines, private and public cloud environments.

ContainerX eliminates the container landscape confusion by offering enterprise IT a ready-to-go, enterprise-class solution for multi-tenant container management, orchestration, compute, network and storage management. Its unique patented technology approach, Elastic Container Clusters™ and Container Pools™, provide multi-tenancy and high levels of resiliency, elasticity and horizontal scalability not offered by other container solutions.

ContainerX is backed by General Catalyst, Greylock and Caffeinated Capital.

"Containers are becoming a critically important tenant of the modern datacenter," said Steve Herrod, former VMware CTO and managing director of General Catalyst. "The ContainerX team, product and vision are impressive, and they are poised to make a large impact in this industry transition."

"The datacenter as we know it today is going through a massive change," said Kiran Kamity, CEO and co-founder of ContainerX. "With traditional virtual machine infrastructures, enterprise IT faces two fundamental issues: operating system management and the lack of application-level agility. Containers have the potential to address both of these critical issues and therefore become a fundamental building block of the datacenter of the future. ContainerX is a plug-n-play container platform that is designed specifically for IT admins who are not looking for a DIY project. It is transforming the enterprise journey, shaping data centers of the future and furthering the promise of containers."

The ContainerX team—with two decades of experience building enterprise-class platforms at companies such as VMware, Microsoft and Citrix—has baked into the platform features such as simple day-zero install, easy day-N operations, alerts, monitoring, analytics and auditing.

"We surveyed several global 5000 enterprise IT teams and learned that in order for IT admins to embrace containers, there needs to be a centrally managed container infrastructure platform, with developer self-service using Docker command line," said Pradeep Padala, ContainerX CTO and co-founder. "ContainerX solves that need."
