Recently, Gartner, a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to executives and their teams has officially released the " Magic Quadrant for Container Management". And Alibaba Cloud is the only Chinese vendor amongst other Chinese vendor that has been recognized as a Leader in this report.

Alibaba Cloud has broad product portfolio, with container services available worldwide. Alibaba Cloud has been positioned as a Leader in Magic Quadrant for Container Management for its Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

Gartner defines container management as offerings that enable the deployment and operation of containerized workloads. Delivery methods include cloud, managed service and software. Container management may be required for containers running onpremises, in the public cloud, at the edge or a combination thereof. Associated technologies include service mesh, orchestration and scheduling, service discovery and registration, image registry, routing and networking, service catalog and management user interface, and API.

Alibaba Cloud’s Elastic Container Instance (ECI) is an agile and secure serverless container instance service. You can easily run containers without managing servers. Also you only pay for the resources that have been consumed by the containers. ECI helps you focus on your business applications instead of managing infrastructure.
