Serverless container technologies continue to grow in popularity across all major public clouds
Usage of serverless container technologies from all major cloud providers—including AWS App Runner, AWS Fargate, Azure Container Apps, Azure Container Instances (ACI), and Google Cloud Run—increased from 21 percent in 2020 to 36 percent in 2022 (YTD). This echoes increases we saw in previous research that included a shift of Amazon ECS users toward AWS Fargate.
Customers cite reducing the need to provision and manage underlying infrastructure as one of the main reasons for adopting serverless technologies for containers. Those customers not using serverless technologies prefer the control and flexibility they get from managing their own infrastructure.
Kubernetes continues to be the most popular container management system
Kubernetes is more popular than ever. Today, nearly half of container organizations run Kubernetes to deploy and manage containers in a growing ecosystem. Tools like Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services (Amazon EKS) Blueprints and Amazon EKS Anywhere—as well as other managed Kubernetes services—make it easy for teams to run Kubernetes clusters in the cloud and on-premise.
