Docker has created a new Ecosystem Technology Partner (ETP) program for in recording and managing log data for Dockerized applications. The new program provides a curated resource of companies who demonstrate viable integration with the Docker platform and provide a comprehensive view of Dockerized distributed applications.
This initiative highlights specific companies that collect container and/or Docker host-level logging data to provide IT operations with insights about the entire Dockerized environment. The first set of program members includes Amazon CloudWatch from Amazon Web Services (AWS), elastic.co, Graylog, Rapid7/Logentries, Loggly, Papertrail, Sematext Logsene, Sumo Logic and Treasure Data.
As part of the program, Docker will highlight a capability area within the application lifecycle, validate integration and communicate the availability of the partnerís solution. The goal of the program is to ensure that organizations offering logging tools have been working with Docker to ensure the highest degree of availability and performance of distributed applications. Partners included in this program have proven integration with the Docker platform and have demonstrated that their solution is able to record logging data for Dockerized applications.
Future Ecosystem Technology Partner program initiatives will focus on other capability areas in the application lifecycle including security, networking and storage.
