A recent report by Gartner showed that the number of virtual instances belonging to the enterprise but not running in the enterprise data centre is growing rapidly (up from 3% in 2011 to 20% in 2014). This rapid flight is generated by novel technologies (like containers) which are being delivered by outside service providers but are not available within the enterprise data centre. The primary trend the enterprise is questing for is agility, which aligns very well with Docker and the Container ecosystem.

This talk will explain how containers drive agility, why the enterprise is seeking it and also explore what the future holds in this brave new world (how much flight does there have to be before the enterprise data centre ceases to exist in its own right). We will also review some of the technologies designed to save the enterprise data centre and why they are doomed to failure.
