IaaS provider ProfitBricks has launched an early preview of its new Docker hosting platform on Wednesday. With the platform customers can build applications in the ProfitBricks cloud and access dedicated resources with dedicated CPU cores and dedicated RAM that can autoscale the Docker hosts.

ProfitBricks said that early access customers will be able to use up to 2,500 CPU core hours as part of its Docker platform preview. The company is currently accepting early access sign-ups on its website.

In a statement, ProfitBricks claims to be the first provider to solve the noisy neighbor problem with its Docker hosting platform. The platform also offers SSH Key download support and a full control panel designed to give DevOps teams an easy to use Docker hosting platform.

“When we first embarked on our Docker product architecture, we knew that it would not only need to meet the standards of existing Docker platforms, but also incorporate new, industry-leading features that addressed existing problems encountered with Docker,” ProfitBricks CEO and co-founder Achim Weiss said. “Docker has been taking the DevOps world by storm since its widespread introduction to the community in 2014, and our platform will combine its impressive features with our flexible and painless cloud computing infrastructure.”

ProfitBricks has maintained that simple and cost-effective cloud pricing combined with performance is its secret sauce. In March, the company announced its price/performance guarantee which guarantees that any workload deployed on its cloud will cost less than the same workload running at the same performance level on Amazon, Google or Microsoft.

Amazon, Google and Microsoft have all launched support for Docker through various services recently. In November, AWS launched a service designed to make it easy to deploy huge amounts of Docker containers on EC2.

Recently, ProfitBricks has focused on courting DevOps users with the launch of its DevOps Central and REST API, along with support for three multi-cloud libraries and a Python SDK.
