Containers

For many users, running containers on bare metal is the ideal architecture.

In addition to our core integrations with the Kubernetes ecosystem, we work with a variety of providers to ensure a 1st class experience for their K8s distribution or other container orchestration tool. This includes automated testing via CI, as well as technical validation and regular product reviews.

Docker Machine

Docker Machine allows you to provision Docker machines on bare metal servers (physical computers) once you have built and installed the docker-machine Equinix Metalâ„¢ driver. Docker Machine creates a Docker host, and you use the Docker Engine client as needed to build images and create containers on the host.
