Shadow-Soft announces strategic partnership with Docker & sponsorship of DockerCon 2014

Atlanta, GA, June 6, 2014Shadow-Soft, the Open Source system integration experts, is excited to announce a new partnership with Docker Inc., the company that delivers the Open Source Docker technology to the enterprise. In this partnership Shadow-Soft will deliver Docker professional services engagements, training and the resale of commercial support for Docker products.  This announcement coincides with the release of version 1.0 of the Docker Platform and the first commercial, Docker-based support and services offerings.


Docker is a revolutionary platform that allows developers and system administrators to build, ship, and run distributed applications as lightweight, portable containers that will run virtually anywhere. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, Open Source innovation, Docker decouples application management from infrastructure management. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and cloud providers while slashing infrastructure costs by 50% or more “This strategic partnership between Shadow-Soft and Docker combines the experience and expertise of Shadow-Soft’s end- to-end Open Source solution and consulting practices with Docker’s platform,” said Roger Egan, SVP Worldwide Sales and Channels for Docker. “The partnership will help our joint customers adopt and integrate Docker into their application lifecycles to deliver application portability, improved infrastructure density and next-generation IT-infrastructures on-premise and in the cloud.”


Shadow-Soft continues to diversify its Cloud portfolio and is proud to be selected as one of the first system integration partners for Docker in North America. The services Shadow-Soft will provide include installation and configuration of Docker, signup and integration with, training and introduction to Docker and Docker concepts, “dockerizing” an initial use case, and best practices consulting on how to integrate Docker into customer development and production workflows. “To say we’re excited about the partnership is an understatement,” said Erik Wallin, COO and Co-Founder of Shadow-Soft. “Docker is a game-changing technology that will allow our customers to radically simplify and automate the development and deployment of applications across DevOps, PaaS, scale-out, hybrid cloud and other environments that need a lightweight alternative to traditional virtualization.”
