Skytap, Inc. Key Developments

Skytap Introduces Skytap Driver for Docker Machine

Skytap, Inc. announced a driver for Docker Machine. The Skytap Driver extends the native functionality of Docker Machine to Skytap Cloud. With this new feature, enterprises can safely modernize traditional on-premises application architectures to container architectures within Skytap Cloud, without impacting any currently in-use environments. The new Skytap Driver enables application teams to begin containerizing their existing applications while avoiding the need to rearchitect the full application from scratch. The Skytap Driver for Docker Machine enables application teams to remotely: Provision Docker hosts using a standard or custom virtual machine (VM) Skytap template into a new or existing Skytap environment; control the VM machine state of the Docker host running within a Skytap environment; and manage the Docker host running within Skytap.

Skytap, Inc Announces an Advanced New Vagrant Provider

Skytap, Inc. announced an advanced new Vagrant Provider, offering software engineering teams the ability to instantly synchronize a local development stack with on-demand cloud-based environments. The latest Vagrant capability is part of Skytap's current initiative for supporting the application modernization tool chain, which includes open-source contributions, adapters for continuous delivery tools, and integrations with today's most prevalent business platforms and legacy applications. Skytap customers gain access to modern tooling that enables them to automate builds, deployments, and handoffs wherever and whenever possible to increase development throughput and agility. This toolchain allows developers or testers to launch an entire reference stack for a given customer on day one, in ready cloud infrastructure, drastically increasing their productivity. The advanced software-defined networking capabilities of Skytap, combined with Vagrant, support a secure synchronization workflow between a developer or quality engineer's local stack, and its exact copy in a Skytap cloud-based environment. This streamlines the staging, testing, and synchronization of machines and software versions among teams, driving increases in overall software quality and dramatically reducing timelines.
