Container Infrastructure Software Market Assessment: x86 Containers Forecast, 2018–2023
This IDC study provides a container forecast that represents the installed base of container hosts and container instances in IT environments for the 2018–2023 period.
"Containers allow for agile and automated deployment of modern applications. Because of the lightweight nature of containers and its provisioning efficiency, a single server can generally host many more containers than VMs and achieve higher utilization," said Gary Chen, research director, Software-Defined Compute. "As the enterprise market works to transform organizationally and technologically to leverage modern infrastructure and applications, large service providers continue to demonstrate the benefits that can be attained in a container-enabled infrastructure."
