Containers is not a new concept any more. The inception of Containers seems to be picking up and predicted to change the way Infrastructure is provisioned and application roll out. Today all the new age applications, Cloud Native Apps are developed in a container friendly way. 
In fact in future you might see Containers as prominent as Virtual Machines today. I don't predict Containers to replace the Virtual Machines and Physical server completely but it would definitely change the DC landscape.

Which is why companies like VMware, who are primarily known for DC Virtualization and Cloud Management doesn't want to miss the bus and already have a good strategy around container adoption and integration with the existing set of solutions and tools.

VMware has a rich portfolio of products and solutions around Containers. To name a few 
  • VIC (vSphere Integrated Containers) - provides critical enterprise container infrastructure to help IT Ops run both traditional and containerized applications side-by-side on a common platform. 
  • Admiral - An open Source lightweight Container Management Platform for deploying and managing container based applications.
  • Photon - Photon OS is a minimal Linux container host, optimized to run on VMware platforms.
  • PKS (Pivotal Container Service) - VMware and Pivotal collaborate to deliver Kubernetes-based container services for multi-cloud enterprises and service providers.

VMware containers strategy as it a perfect fit for Enterprises who are already using VMware platform services. As presence of VMware in DC makes it logically easier for IT teams to deliver container services to their Application teams and Developers.
