Among the companies differentiating themselves in the cloud computing space, Apcera is an interesting case study. Ken Robertson, Apcera Lead Architect joins Alex Williams for a discussion on container security Nov 9.
Apcera’s secret sauce lies in a cloud policy-centric approach that helps enterprise cloud architects, developers, system administrators and the C-suite manage containerized workloads of all sizes, including Docker, for hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
The Apcera platform enables users to deploy and orchestrate applications in an agile manner on the most popular public and private clouds, while still providing IT with the tools needed to manage, secure and govern infrastructure. The Apcera platform embeds a policy engine that allows an operations group to construct policies that can act as “guard rails” for the organization. Within these boundaries, developers can gain access to whatever resource they need without a constant back-and-forth with an operations group to get the work done. This enables entire organizations to move forward, faster and with more confidence.
The Apcera platform sits above AWS, Google, IBM SoftLayer, VMware, OpenStack and other cloud providers. It lets you deploy your workloads to any of these providers, on-prem or off-prem, or move between any of them, using the same commands and with identical policy support.
