Docker Announces ETP Program to Recognize Companies Integrated with its Open Source Platform

FREMONT, CA: Docker - an open platform for distributed applications that allows developers and IT administrators to build, ship and run applications anywhere - announces its Ecosystem Technology Partner (ETP) program. This program is an initiative for recognizing companies that have demonstrated integration with the Docker platform.

This ETP program is aimed to monitor distributed applications of Docker. These are applications that run on multiple computers within a network at the same time and can be stored on servers or with cloud computing.  The companies to integrate their monitoring tools with Docker include AppDynamics, Datadog, New Relic, Scout, SignalFx and Sysdig. Organizations of all sizes can use SignalFx – the new entrant in the ETP program – to monitor their Dockerized distributed applications in real-time.

“With a shift in application architecture, the monitoring needs are changing to address the distributed nature of these applications. For operational teams to be comfortable with this shift, they need to know that Docker is providing the right kind of information and that there is an ecosystem of tools around it. Docker’s Ecosystem Technology Partner program ensures that companies building monitoring tools integrate with the Docker platform to offer users and organizations the highest degree of visibility, availability and performance for distributed applications,” said Nick Stinemates, head of business development and technical alliances, Docker.

Docker empowers IT organizations to shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud, and improve infrastructure efficiency by 50 percent or more. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed a flourishing ecosystem that actively engages with the project through its open approach: governance, contribution, design, and APIs.
