DockerCon EU: Trust and Image Provenance

At Dockercon EU we discussed the opportunities and challenges around trust within Docker. We covered an analysis of the existing state of trust as well as early ideas and proposals for improving trust in the future. We gave a demo of a proof of concept showing what is possible using public key cryptography for establishing trust within the Docker engine.

DockerCon EU: Introducing Docker Hub Enterprise

There’s many ways to use Hub Enterprise and we’ve seen some pretty cool use cases out in the field. It was great to be on stage at DockerCon in an informal manner. We were able to share what we’ve seen in the wild with Docker Hub Enterprise and dig one level deeper into the overarching philosophy and design principles of the product. In this talk, you get to see differing real world use cases, hear thoughts from us on what we envision for Hub Enterprise, and gather hints at what the future roadmap for Hub Enterprise holds.

DockerCon EU: What’s new with Docker Hub?

At DockerCon EU we introduced three new features that we will be releasing on the Docker Hub, in the coming weeks: email invites, web hooks 2.0 and an Automated build dashboard. We also talked about some other features we hope to have released in the near future. Watch the video to checkout the new features, and then head on over to Docker Hub and try them out in person.

DockerCon EU: Introducing Docker Machine

At DockerCon EU we introduced Docker Machine, a way to get from zero to Docker. It creates Docker hosts on local hypervisors and cloud providers. Take a look at the demo in the video to get an idea for how it works, then head over to Docker Machine’s GitHub repository to try out a beta.

DockerCon EU: Introducing Docker Swarm

At DockerCon EU we introduced Docker Swarm: a Docker-native clustering system. It allows you to connect to a single Docker endpoint and run containers on an entire cluster.

Docker Swarm comes with a simple discovery service, for an easy setup. If you already have a discover service within your infrastructure like consul or etcd, you can use those instead.

Schedule maintenance Jan 14 at 02:00:00 UTC

We’re planning scheduled maintenance on Jan 14, 2014 at 02:00:00 UTC lasting no more than 15 minutes. During this maintenance window we will be upgrading our master PostgreSQL database and implement a more redundant HAProxy configuration.

Thanks for your patience as we work to improve Docker Hub’s reliability.

DockerCon EU: Introducing Docker Compose

At DockerCon EU I talked about Docker Compose, an orchestration tool we’re working on for defining, spinning up and managing apps consisting of multiple containers. It bears more than a passing resemblance to a tool I helped create called Fig. At the time, we were proposing building Compose into the Docker client itself, but we’ve now revised that plan and will be keeping it separate and building directly on the Fig codebase. Still, the breakout session is a good introduction to what Compose does.

Docker Hub Jan 5 outage

Monday January 5th at 10:04am PST, the Docker Hub network experienced a service interruption for approximately one hour. The outage was caused by a networking configuration change to our border router, which is responsible for directing all traffic for services related to Docker Hub. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this outage has caused.

During this outage we have identified areas for improvement and are implementing changes to the way we manage the operations of Docker Hub:

  1. Improve our escalation and monitoring procedures so that the response times are faster
  2. Implement a robust environment for testing networking changes before rolling them to production
  3. Implement a more informative site is down error page
Again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience this outage has caused and thank you for your patience as we work to increase Docker Hub’s performance and reliability.
