October 21, 2015 — Trek10, a cloud enablement company that specializes in Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced a partnership with Docker, the company behind the Docker open source platform and chief sponsor of the Docker ecosystem. Trek10 becomes a Docker Authorized Consulting Partner with Docker Accredited Consultants completing Docker’s certification course on “Docker Accelerator for CI Engagements”. Through this partnership, Trek10 enable customers to realize a consistent and repeatable way to manage their application life-cycles with Docker. Trek10 has joined the elite ranks of the Docker Authorized Consulting Partners who are trained by Docker to be a trusted expert on Docker and to enable environments that take advantage of Docker’s Enterprise Subscription.
Docker is an open platform for helping developers and systems administrators build, ship and run distributed applications anywhere. Organizations using Docker are able to ship applications faster, and dynamically update and scale these applications while gaining seamless portability of applications across environments.
Also, earlier this month at AWS re:Invent, Trek10 announced that it was named an Advanced Consulting Partner by the AWS Partner Network (APN). This designation recognizes the team’s expertise formalizes Trek10’s commitment to the AWS platform. Together, the companies are providing a complete cloud services and cloud management portfolio that will give enterprise customers fast, flexible access to the cloud.
“This is a very exciting time for Trek10. Becoming a Docker Authorized Consulting Partner further validates Trek10 as a leader in this space, and strengthens our relationship with Docker, which is great for all of our customers,” notes CEO Andy Warzon. “That designation, combined with our status as AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, points to our expertise on the intersection of the biggest trends in IT, DevOps and Infrastructure as a Service.”
“When customers look for a partner, choosing a company that has the credentials required for taking applications through the application lifecycle using Docker’s Enterprise Subscriptions is the best way to ensure customer success,” said Alan Geary, Sr. Director of Channel and Alliance Sales at Docker. “Through this certification, Trek10 has demonstrated their expertise in helping enterprise customers streamline the application deployment process all the way through production using Docker. Additionally, as an AWS Advanced partner, Trek10’s team of highly qualified professionals are well positioned to help organizations realize the business value of Docker on AWS.”

Accredited consultants attend Docker’s certification courses to learn about the Docker Methodology and best practices to provide customers with a consistent approach globally when engaging a Docker Authorized Consulting Partner.
“We are excited about the potential that Docker carries and has already demonstrated for our clients and their teams,” says Jared Short, Director of DevOps at Trek10. “Docker and AWS are a perfect technology couple, and make it an absolute pleasure to implement scalable and highly available applications. The unique isolation of dependencies using Docker means we can focus on providing the best possible infrastructure, monitoring, and maintenance, while our clients keep focus on what makes them great and keep cranking on their application.”
