Support ACE and ACP containers for containerD runtime


Request IBM to support the ACE, ITX and ACP containers in containerD runtime of EKS.

Currently AWS EKS latest version do not support docker as runtime. I request IBM to support containerD runtimes for ACE, ACP and ITX containers as well.

    Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request. Whilst our support statements for App Connect Professional currently only cover Docker (as in the PMR advice, ACP may work in containerd but this has not been tested and is not currently covered by support), we do already support containerd for App Connect Enterprise ( As for ITX, I'm afraid IBM Transformation Extender enhancement requests cannot be dealt with within this tool's App Connect workspace. Given the existing support for ACE in containerd and the low business priority to extend support for ACP to formally cover containerd, unfortunately on this occasion the status of this request is being updated to Not Under Consideration.
