By: Ritu JyotiProgram Vice President, Artificial Intelligence Strategies


This IDC Perspective provides an update on stateful containers, their state of adoption, challenges, and technology approaches for enterprise-grade persistent storage. The study also provides guidance on how organizations can phase in adoption of stateful containers to support superior business outcomes in the digital transformation (DX) era.

"Although organizations are in the early phases of stateful containers adoption, they are proving to be highly useful for business agility, SDLC acceleration, and cost savings in the DX era," said Ritu Jyoti, research director, IDC's Enterprise Storage, Server, and Infrastructure Software team. "There is a fast-growing ecosystem of container schedulers and frameworks, and much of the innovation is focused on persistent storage challenges for stateful applications."
