ContainerX is a comprehensive container platform that provides the world's first multi-tenant container-as-a-service (CaaS) platform for both Linux and Windows, as well as a single pane of glass for all containers allowing support for bare metal and virtual machines, private and public cloud environments. Its unique patented technology approach, Elastic Container Clusters™ and Container Pools™, provide multi-tenancy and high levels of resiliency, elasticity and horizontal scalability, making ContainerX the most powerful way to manage Docker in the enterprise.
"It seems like 2016 is the year of GA products in the container management space," said Kiran Kamity, CEO and co-founder of ContainerX. "The first generation of container management products that have been released thus far are good for small teams with single tenant capabilities. Our Elastic Clusters and Container Pools enable an enterprise-grade multi-tenant capability, with resiliency and elasticity that can enable enterprises and service providers to guarantee better QoS and SLAs. That, coupled with our Windows CaaS capabilities, has allowed us to build the industry's first multi-tenant container management platform for both Linux and Windows that can cater to both enterprises and service providers."
Advantage24, a service provider with several datacenters in Tokyo, is one of ContainerX's first customers and has been using the product to offer a CaaS platform to their users in Japan.
"We have evaluated most of the container management platforms out there, over the course of the last eighteen months and, after quite a bit of research, chose ContainerX," said Terry Warren, President and co-founder of Advantage24. "Their multi-tenancy features such as Container Pools, support for bare-metal platforms as a first-class citizen, coupled with their turnkey user experience, makes them ideal for any enterprise or service provider looking for a complete container management solution. They've built the beginnings of an excellent product and their highly capable team is a pleasure to work with. I am looking forward to building a world-class container-as-a-service platform using ContainerX."
