UT Container Services
These services can be used to deploy Docker container-based applications on a highly-available run-time platform, managed by ITS.
The Managed Container Environment (MCE) is suitable for applications that need isolated/dedicated computing nodes. The Deployment Environment Management (DEM) is suitable for less resource-intensive applications that are appropriate for a multi-tenant computing platform.
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.
Request Types may include:

- User interface accessible by anyone with a high assurance EID
- Assistance with setup of end-user EID authentication by deployed applications provided by service stewards
Available to UT Colleges/Schools/Units at no extra cost ("common good" service)

Development teams using this platform are responsible for the cyber-security of Docker containers that they deploy. Specifically, the Operating System and third-party software/utilities in their container(s) should be kept up-to-date with the latest security patches.
