Fairwinds Named in Gartner® ‘Cool Vendors™ in Container Management’ Report 

Why Fairwinds is Cool

Fairwinds has been named a Gartner Cool Vendor in the ‘Cool Vendors in Container Management’ report*.  Published on August 3, 2023, the report was written by Dennis Smith, Arun Chandrasekaran, and Tony Iams.

According to the report, “container adoption continues to grow. Gartner has seen an increase of more than 20% over the past year in client interactions involving container technology. Gartner inquiries reveal that enterprises are not only adopting containers but also often struggling to manage the deployments. This is particularly so for deployments that span multiple public cloud environments and/or on-premises deployments.”

Platform teams use Fairwinds Insights to implement standards, enforce development best practices for developers to self-service and do the right thing consistently.

Automate Kubernetes Development Best Practices and Enable Your Developers

Many platform engineering teams are turning to Kubernetes to build a platform for software developers. These teams don’t necessarily want developers to become Kubernetes experts, instead they want to build an internal developer platform or “paved road” that enables self-service. Unfortunately, platform engineering teams are often becoming a helpdesk for development.
