Today, we are thrilled to announce that Infinit and Docker are joining forces.
To anyone following the container space, this may not come as a surprise because persistent storage remains the number one challenge when it comes to container technologies.
Still, for Infinit, this is a huge milestone, closing the loop that has taken the team through quite an incredible journey.
Docker has changed the way developers work. By providing an ecosystem of tools based on container technologies, developers and operators have been able to gain in agility and security. At the same time, Docker has succeeded at reconciling operators and developers (through what has been dubbed the DevOps movement) by making them speak the same language.
This whole revolution is still in its early stages even though both ends of the spectrum, startups and enterprises, have jumped on the train. Indeed, at this point, containers have been used primarily to deploy stateless applications because these can be stopped and relaunched easily, allowing for easy scalability.
Unfortunately, this is no longer enough as developers want more. Namely, they want the ability to scale stateful applications, such as databases, as easily as their stateless counterparts.
With stateful applications being the next natural step in this evolution, Infinit comes into play by providing the Docker community with a storage platform that is scalable, resilient and easy to deploy.
