Though DockerCon 2016 in Seattle is now only a memory, several firms announced Docker-related products today.
NGINX, of San Francisco and Moscow, announced the public beta of Amplify, software that it said monitors the performance of applications and infrastructure. It also helps plan capacity. NGINX also produces NGINX Plus for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform, an open-source web server and load balancer.
SkyKick, of Seattle, which makes software exclusively for use by IT experts (often called solution providers) helping end-customers move, back-up and manage cloud-based applications, said that as of July 10 it will let those experts offer its software through their websites as though it were their own – an approach known as syndication.
Currently, the software is available only through SkyKick’s website, or through several distributors, including Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, Synnex CloudSolv and the ALSO Cloud Marketplace. Offering syndicated software saves IT experts time, as it enables their end-customers to undertake some tasks themselves, SkyKick said. SkyKick has also opened its APIs, allowing developers to build custom apps built on its technology. The company has provided software to more than 5,000 IT experts in more than 125 countries, it said.
Midokura, of San Francisco, said its Enterprise MidoNet network virtualization software is now integrated with Mirantis’s OpenStack 8.0 and Fuel, creating a product that works with both private and hybrid clouds.
