Rick Gouin, CTO of Winslow Technology Group, a Waltham, Mass.-based data center solution provider that works with Dell EMC, said container technology is moving into the mainstream, and Winslow is making sure it's ready to provide containers and container services – and the attendant hyper-converged infrastructure – when customers say they're ready.
"We're starting to see containerization coming out of exclusively the DevOps area, and into standard infrastructure," Gouin said. "It's just like virtualization was a number of years ago. You have to be able to provide that framework for your customers so when they get to that point, you can provide them with the infrastructure they need. It'll be table stakes for deploying that infrastructure."
