The Docker Modernize Traditional Apps (MTA) Program Adds Microsoft Azure Stack
In April of this year, Docker announced the Modernize Traditional Apps (MTA) POC program with partners Avanade, Booz Allen, Cisco, HPE and Microsoft. The MTA program is designed to help IT teams flip the 80% maintenance to 20% innovation ratio on it’s head. The combination of Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), services and infrastructure into a turnkey program delivers portability, security and efficiency for the existing app portfolio to drive down total costs and make room for innovation like cloud strategies and new app development. The program starts by packaging of existing apps into isolated containers, providing the opportunity to migrate them to new on-prem or cloud environments, without any recoding.
Docker customers have already been taking advantage of the program to jumpstart their migration to Azure and are experiencing dramatically reduced deployment and scaling times — from weeks to minutes — and cutting their total costs by 50% or more.
The general availability of Microsoft Azure Stack provides IT with the ability to manage their datacenters in the same way they manage Azure. The consistency in hybrid cloud infrastructure deployment combined with consistency in application packaging, deployment and management only further enhance operational efficiency. Docker is pleased to announce the addition of Azure Stack to the MTA Program for hybrid cloud environments. Docker will provide partners with a Technical Preview of the Docker EE template for Azure Stack as an easy and quick way to deploy and manage containers for the MTA project.
The Docker MTA Program is available from the partners:
