I think the build time can be better. There's a lot of work done by Mirantis for BuildKit, for example, or Buildx, and I think there is a lot of stuff that can be done over there. Some improvements can be made on the Docker Compose level with some dependencies. For example, if you have a service that's dependent on another service, you can't do that today with Docker Compose. Also, if Mirantis can leverage open source Kubernetes as part of its own offering, I think it would be a huge hit because every developer uses Mirantis. People know Containers because of Docker, and I feel that if they collaborate or incorporate Kubernetes into the Mirantis runtime it would be a big thing because everybody needs local environments and everybody needs to assemble environments for testing, A/B deployments, or production, and have as much of a reproducible environment as possible. I think that would be a huge success. I would love to see the QUIC protocol support apart from TCP and UDP in Mirantis. I think that they would be the first one to do it because it's not really there at the moment with any other container runtimes that I know of.

Areas for improvement are the privacy of container management and the documentation. In the next release, I would like to see best practices on how to manage distributed containers and networks.

This solution is open-source and they need to focus on improving the Linux Operating Systems' GUI. It does not have a GUI making it not user-friendly. Additionally, the containers need to improve security and compliance.

Sometimes it is difficult to access the quality of information on Docker. I also feel that it is not a 100% secure product and I'd say there is room for improvement in the security area and functionality. I would also like to see more features inside Docker as well as more integration with different solutions.

It would be very nice to have a GUI that can be used by any administrator, and not just people who have experience with Docker.

You need to be aware of the complete networking aspects of Docker across walled communications. That is something that you can simplify. For a developer, it is easy to understand if you have networking knowledge. If you are just a developer without networking knowledge, it's very difficult to understand how to communicate across walls using containers. Especially if you're in a call data center. That's the one aspect which I find very difficult. I'm a coder. I've wanted to see an easy way to integrate seamlessly with other systems. For example, Jenkins has a Docker plugin. If you were to write an integration, you need to explicitly write code, especially for customizations. It's not easy to integrate unless you are a coder. If Docker can create some kind of workflow in generic fields, i.e. things that we can integrate with other out of the box tools, that would be great. OpenShift is an alternative to Kubernetes. I find Docker easier to use, but I gave it to an inexperienced developer and it took him a lot of time to understand.

The solution would benefit in improvements made to the storage, cleaning up information from the disk, and reading logs.

I am using the community edition, rather than the enterprise edition because I am operating on a very small scale at the moment. The community edition does not require a license and is completely free.

I recommend using Docker. The most important thing is that you review your internal capability building before using this product. * Look at what kind of skill sets are currently in the organization. * Make sure that everybody understands what Docker means before implementing. * Up-skill them and make sure that everybody understands why Docker is important in the scheme of things. Some organizations may think that Docker doesn't fit their culture. In general, I think that Docker is a good fit for 80% of the organizations that I've seen. Internal capability building is the other thing that is very important in the setup. You need to make an architectural runway before actually starting to implement Docker Compose, especially in a distributed environment. For security aspects, we need to make sure that the security and monitoring for Docker are always in operation. I would rate this product a 7.5 out of ten because it solved many of my problems. If you're a developer, it's easy to understand. It is the way a developer should develop and deploy in the current environment, especially in a container-driven world.

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to read the documentation very carefully. That can give a lot of relief when the client needs a solution. If Docker had a graphical user interface then it would be a perfect solution. I would rate this solution and eight out of ten.
