451 Research Recognizes Apcera as a Leader in Emerging Category of Enterprise Container Management and Microservices

With a Focus on Security and Policy, Apcera Delivers the Only Enterprise-Grade Platform for Managing Containers in Production, at Scale

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2016) - Apcera today announced that 451 Research has published a new report titled, "Apcera Steps Up In Fight To Support Enterprise Containers At Scale With Security." 451 Research describes the Apcera Platform as "a secure and complete, policy-driven container management platform that can support containers and cloud-native applications, as well as modernizing x86 applications," and details Apcera's strength and leading position as a true, enterprise-grade container management platform.

The report authored by Jay Lyman, principal analyst at 451 Research for cloud management and containers, states, "Apcera is among a select group of vendors that are well positioned to support enterprise customers' use of containers in DevOps, microservices and digital transformation endeavors, which are growing in number and scope. With its focus on production use, security and policy, Apcera addresses the main enterprise pain points and demands around containers and microservices."

The report goes on to say that unlike other offerings, "Apcera's software supports application modernization, and installs on top of customer-provisioned and scheduled VMs working with tooling that the customer chooses. This helps enterprises leverage existing investments and also helps them address the reality of running containers on top of VMs, which is common."

"Apcera has an enterprise-first approach to container management, and customers regularly turn to us to help modernize legacy applications as well as to run Docker securely and at scale," said Mark Thiele, chief strategy officer for Apcera. "The new 451 Research report is a strong validation of our strategy and underscores our commitment to delivering a practical, real world solution for container management that addresses the needs of enterprise IT."
