Containerizing workloads applications and moving them from preproduction to production

Innovation is driving unprecedented demand for cloud-native applications and the containerization of traditional applications. Application developers are also adopting analytics, deep learning, and machine learning into their application lifecycle, leveraging containers. Market forces and competition require that you bring these innovations and capabilities to market faster than ever before. Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) best practice methodology and automation are essential to driving agility in your service delivery. In order to determine the right path forward when it comes to cloud-native applications, you need to define your container strategy up front across your hybrid cloud. This would include determining container management platforms such as HPE Ezmeral Container Platform, Google™ Anthos GKE and GKE on-prem, Red Hat® OpenShift, VMware® Tanzu, powered by Kubernetes.


HPE Ezmeral Container Platform, powered by Kubernetes, helps your teams rapidly adapt in the age of application agility. The goals of the service are simple: faster time to application service delivery and lowering the costs and challenges of adopting the latest container strategies.


The service enables your teams to run your container platforms in either on-premises or off-premises in a truly scalable, standard, repeatable, and reliable manner using HPE IP and best practice for automated integration of your unique characteristics into your production environment.

  • Experience

    HPE Pointnext Services has years of experience transitioning the way customers develop and operate applications workloads. Today, container platforms are being leveraged for many use cases, including traditional applications, microservices-based cloud-native development, and cloud advanced computing, such as machine learning. Containers can also be an effective method to avoid vendor lock-in and enable a hybrid cloud service delivery strategy. Working with our container management partners, we have created the right architectures, networking, storage, and automation to help you speed up innovation, leveraging our combined technologies and experience.
  • Service approach

    The service is designed with three key strategic sprints aligned to your container service delivery strategy:

    Each sprint builds upon each other and can be ordered individually or all at once. Note: the HPE defined criteria is required to move from Sprint 1 to Sprint 2 and to Sprint 3.

    Sprint 1 is the viability sprint, focused on developer experience and containerization. This sprint helps your developers and operations teams to create capabilities that deliver your applications or workloads in containers. Sprint 1 answers questions such as:

    • What systems are integrated?
    • How will your team deploy microservices-based applications?
    • How do we secure and scale to meet business needs?


    Sprint 2 focuses on integrating containers into your existing infrastructure, coupled with a secure delivery pipeline in preproduction. This sprint includes deeper design discussions to help ensure all requirements are realized in the subsequent deployment. Preproduction tests are conducted to onboard workloads securely.


    Sprint 3 brings the integrated container pipeline into a subset of your production environment, helping assure what was built in preproduction works as expected in production. Also, application owners and ITOps have the tools, visibility, and governance to start managing containers in your production environment, with confidence at scale.
