Cisco has expanded its partnership Docker to deliver essential container capabilities for application-centric data center and cloud infrastructure.

Cisco and Docker will deliver unified and certified solutions for the entire application journey, whether organizations are containerizing traditional applications, refactoring applications to microservices, or creating new applications. Docker EE with Docker Datacenter running on Cisco UCS will provide application developers a seamless way to deploy, iterate, re-deploy, and monitor applications onto production infrastructure, said Cisco.

Docker EE is the leading container platform for enterprise developers and IT teams that are looking to converge a diverse set of application pipelines under one uniform packaging format, API & tooling for all their applications across the entire application lifecycle. 

Cisco claims that its UCS is ideal for distributed, microservices application architectures with high performance networking and comprehensive infrastructure controls via application programming interfaces. The partnership will also involve Contiv, an open source fabric for container networking that Cisco started more than a year ago.

Liz Centoni, SVP and GM, Cisco Computing Systems Product Group
The powerful combination of Cisco's leading UCS product line for Cloud infrastructure and Docker's containerized technology will offer customers high levels of security, manageability and scale. Developers and IT, working together, can now build ship and deploy container applications anywhere.

Ben Golub, CEO, Docker 
This strategic partnership brings even more opportunity for these enterprises by running Dockerized applications on a validated Cisco UCS infrastructure that is optimized for security, availability, performance and scale.
