The Silicon Review
The world is witnessing a true digital transformation right now in the Identity Management space. And being the most efficient and secure place to run applications, container technology is just beginning to be adopted in mass.
Containers run anywhere on-premise or in any cloud and allow much higher density (20x) than traditional virtual machines from VMware and Microsoft. And, Identity-as-a-Container (IDaaC) solution can be a revolutionary thing with all the administrative features that cloud providers experience today. IDaaC combines the best of IDaaS (cloud-only) and on-premise identity management offerings while delivering greater flexibility and control than hybrid identity management solutions.
