Is docker still the solution for On-Premesis containerization?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Zigi - Close all those tabs. Zigi will handle your updates.
  • swarmkit

    A toolkit for orchestrating distributed systems at any scale. It includes primitives for node discovery, raft-based consensus, task scheduling and more.

    The sad thing is there are issues and even pull requests open since 2016, but it seems no one cares anymore. Mirantis bought the Docker Swarm part, but it does not show up as product on their homepage, there seems little development, despite their positive posts. Sometimes Docker employees accept some changes to the repo.

  • distribution-spec

    OCI Distribution Specification

    As you said too, so long as you build Open Container Initiative (OCI) compliant images, which Docker does, you can run them with any container runtime that supports OCI images - including many of the CRI container engines such as containerd and Docker with the appropriate shim.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.
