do you use Containers currently, do you use Docker ?

Rather than spinning up an entire OS, you can just spin up a website service for example.

see these EE Articles

https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/18440/A-comparison-of-Container-vs-Virtual-Machine.html

https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/17374/What-I-learned-about-Docker-and-Why-it-Excites-Me.html

It bolts onto your existing vSphere environment.... download here

if you have... vSphere Enterprise Plus or vSphere Operations Management Enterprise Plus licenses you a licensed!

I do not have much idea about Docker and do not use containers.   I am currently considering the best technologies for our VMware infrastructure therefore needed more details.  Thanks.

If you don't use Docker currently, or use containers, it may be of little use to you currently.

but have a read of the EE Articles.
