UT Container Services

The Deployment Environment Management (DEM) service is suitable for low to moderately resource-intensive applications, that are appropriate for a multi-tenant computing platform.  It is not HIPAA-compliant.

DEM can be used to deploy and run Docker container-based applications on a highly-available platform, managed by UT Information Technology Services (ITS).

  • Deployment Environment Manager (DEM)

    DEM is an on-campus “platform as a service”, which may be used by a software development team to deploy and manage applications; each application comprising a group of one or more cooperating Docker containers. In contrast to the Managed Container Environment offering, DEM is a multi-tenant environment with container isolation between applications.
