What is the current state of orchestration usage—and how does orchestration impact Docker environments?

As Docker adoption continues to rise, many organizations have turned to orchestration platforms like ECS and Kubernetes to manage large numbers of ephemeral containers. Thousands of companies use Datadog to monitor millions of containers, which enables us to identify trends in real-world orchestration usage. We’re excited to share 8 key findings of our research.

In this report, you will learn:

  • Which orchestrators have gained the greatest share of Docker environments
  • How orchestration impacts Docker host lifetimes and container density
  • The types of container images most commonly deployed in Kubernetes vs. ECS
