MAPLEWOOD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apps4Rent brings a ready-to-use Docker Community Edition with Ubuntu Xenial, which is pre-installed on Ubuntu and powered by Microsoft Azure, to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. This cohesive Docker solution can be integrated immediately, which saves cumbersome installation time. The solution has been designed and tested by Apps4Rent experts. Apps4Rent customers can now take advantage of the scalability, high availability, and security of managed Azure, with streamlined deployment and management.
Docker is a containerization platform packaging together all the applications along with its peripherals in a Docker container. Being a standardized unit created on the fly to deploy an application, Docker ensures that applications work seamlessly in any given environment. Dockers are more efficient than virtual machines (VMs) in terms of boot time, memory consumption, and third-party integration.
Wade Dubey, Business Development Manager at Apps4Rent, said, “We wanted to leverage Docker, which is the most widely used container engine today. Our solution is a community-supported version of Docker that is pre-installed on Ubuntu Xenial platform.
