Containerization is now officially mainstream. A quarter of Datadog’s total customer base has adopted Docker and other container technologies, and half of the companies with more than 1,000 hosts have done so. As containers take a more prominent place in the infrastructure landscape, we see our customers adding automation and orchestration to help manage their fleets of ephemeral containers.
Across all infrastructure environments, our data shows increased usage of container orchestration technologies such as Kubernetes and Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). The companies running these technologies tend to have larger, far more dynamic deployments than companies running unorchestrated containers.
