Clutch Becomes a Docker Authorized Consulting Partner

The DevOps-Focused Consulting and Services Firm Partners With Docker to Accelerate Application Development and Delivery

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2015) - Clutch, a fast-growing consulting and IT services firm focused on the DevOps market, announces a partnership with Docker, the company behind the Docker open source platform and chief sponsor of the Docker ecosystem. Clutch is now a Docker Authorized Consulting Partner, having completed Docker's certification course on the "Docker Accelerator for CI Engagements." More info about Clutch's success implementing Docker can be found here.

Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and achieve 20x greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 800 million times. Docker also provides enterprise subscriptions that deliver the software, support and maintenance organizations need to deploy a Dockerized application environment.

Last week, Clutch hosted Docker's "Accelerator for CI Engagement" training course at the consulting firm's Seattle headquarters. The event was led by senior Docker engineering staff and attended by more than two dozen partners, including Clutch. In the past two years, Clutch has completed dozens of Docker-based projects for large corporate clients. The firm now has several Docker Accredited Consultants on staff and many more who have worked extensively with the technology.

"Docker is fast becoming the standard for how to quickly and cost-effectively deliver enterprise applications in virtual and cloud environments," says Clutch CEO Steven Anderson. "Docker, along with various other DevOps tools and methodologies, are enormous differentiators for companies striving to disrupt their markets with new digital products and services."

"We are very excited by the work Steven and his team are doing using Docker in the enterprise," says Alan Geary, Docker's Sr. director of partner and alliance sales. "Clutch's technical team is impressive and their ability to take customers from concept to production by implementing Docker's platform ensures customers' success. When combining Clutch's advisory services with Docker's Enterprise Subscriptions, customers can now easily build, ship and run mobile, web and most distributed applications using Docker's Enterprise Subscriptions. Customers looking for a helping hand with their application modernization initiatives and mobile application deployments, or looking to streamline their deployment process to speed time to value from their application teams, will be impressed by Clutch's ability to guide them into production."
