Wanting to run Docker in a VM? Find out how!
Companies looking to deploy Docker containers in production that are stable, enterprise-ready should consider using Docker Datacenter (DDC) with HPE, which is the commercially supported version of Docker. DDC is the foundation for building containers as a service and includes these components:
- Docker Universal Control Plane (UCP) for orchestration and management of the Docker environment
- Docker Trusted Registry (DTR) for secured Docker image management and collaboration
- Commercially supported Docker Engine, which is the runtime deployed on each UCP node
The two most popular methods of Docker deployment are running Docker containers inside VMs or via bare metal. Ultimately, the decision will be based on the needs of the business. These needs include: terms of resource efficiency, application security and management, existing deployment processes and best practices, comfort level with containers, and CapEx/OpEx considerations.
