Not only does the Vulnerability Advisor help users detect vulnerable containers, Diaz says, IBM Containers also provides the ability to write policies around containers.
Late-stage startup Mindjet, known for its Spigit crowdsourcing platform, is an early adopter of IBM Containers. The Spigit team has been experiencing annual growth of more than 30 percent, leading to escalating operations costs and scaling limitations as a result of its existing infrastructure. The company says it turned to IBM Containers on Bluemix to help its development teams operate more efficiently, innovate with speed, improve engagement and boost productivity.
"While we started our application development on Heroku, it wasn't long before the resulting operations costs started to overtax our team, limiting us in terms of development and pace capabilities," Mindjet CTO James Gardner said in a statement. "The agile and open capabilities of IBM's Bluemix, including the new Docker-based IBM Container services, helped us cut our deployment times to mere seconds and increase our freedom to do what every startup wants to do more of, focus on innovation for our clients."
