Bare-metal container platform delivers container networking and storage infrastructure; Reseller opportunity to free enterprise customers from virtual machine licensing
SAN JOSE, April 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Diamanti, creators of the first bare-metal container platform, today announced the launch of the Diamanti Value-Added Reseller Program for IT channel companies seeking to build new, high-margin datacenter services on top of Linux containers. As container formats like Docker have matured and orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes have become industry standard, enterprise datacenters are replatforming on containers as the preferred deployment model for microservices and distributed systems.
“The application container market is exploding,” said Henry Baltazar, Research VP Infrastructure of 451 Research, a technology market research firm. “We forecast 2018 container spending will be $1.6 billion with a 31% compound annual growth rate through 2022.”
In a new survey also announced today — “Why Containers Are the Biggest Channel Opportunity Since VMs” ( download the full report) — more than 130 IT resellers, VARs and MSPs share their views on the economic opportunity around Docker and Containers, and the implications for VMware in the channel. The survey reveals that 43% of the Channel is already working with Docker, 31% are working with Kubernetes, and 46% see “new cloud-native applications” as a common use case ahead of containers.
But 45% of the channel survey respondents describe their technical knowledge of containers as “beginner” level, with only 4% claiming “expert” knowledge.
Diamanti has developed a bare-metal container platform that extends the benefits of hyperconverged infrastructure for a containerized world with rapid installation, simple management, and container network and storage resources integrated with Docker and Kubernetes. D10 gives the channel a clear path to selling high-margin container offerings, using existing IT operations know-how.
Diamanti has been named a Gartner “Cool Vendor” for its bare-metal hyperconverged platform. Database Trends and Applications named Diamanti a 2018 “Trend-Setting Product in Data Management.” Other product accolades for Diamanti include being named one of CRN’s “10 Coolest Cloud Storage Startups” and being included in Forbes “10 New Product Categories Created Exclusively for the Container Era.”
