Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Docker makes apps easier to deploy with several instances on one OS and makes it easy for developers to quickly create ready-to-run containered applications.

How Docker can be leveraged with Pentaho:

  • Simplify and scale production deployments of Pentaho Servers
  • Provision dynamic ETL clusters
  • Run secure ETL containers
  • As a tool to share complex environments

Pentaho’s Docker utilities are currently available in GitHub.
