Announcing the Docker for Mac and Windows Public Beta

Back in March, we launched a private beta for a new ambitious project called Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows. Our major goal was to bring a native Docker experience to Mac and Windows, making it easier for developers to work with Docker in their own environments. And thousands agreed. Over thirty thousand applied in the first 24 hours. And by last week, we let in over seventy thousand. And now all you need to get started developing is Docker and a text editor. No more installing dependencies and runtimes just to debug applications.

Introducing the Docker for AWS and Azure Beta

Today, we’re excited to announce Docker for AWS and Docker for Azure. Our goals for Docker for AWS and Azure are the same as for Docker for Mac and Windows: Deploy a standard Docker platform to ensure teams can seamlessly move apps from developer laptops to Docker staging and production environments, without risk of incompatibilities or lock-in. Integrate deeply with underlying infrastructure to make sure Docker takes advantage of the host environment’s native capabilities and exposes a familiar interface to administrators. Deploy the Docker platform to all the places where you want to run containerized apps, simply and efficiently and at no extra cost. Make sure the latest and greatest Docker versions are available for the hardware, OSs, and infrastructure you love, and provide solid upgrade paths from one Docker version to the next.

Share your love for Docker for Mac and Windows in a #DockerVideo

Since the launch of the Docker for Mac and Windows apps in late March, there have been tens of thousands of requests – over 30,000 users in just the first 24 hours! First of all, THANK YOU! Your support and enthusiasm is what drives us to build the best Docker experience for local development. Speaking of enthusiasm, we also enjoyed how the enthusiasm was expressed through some really funny tweets.

Docker Online Meetup #36: Docker for Windows and Mac

Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows are integrated, easy-to-deploy environments for building, assembling, and shipping applications from Mac or Windows. Docker for Mac and Windows contain many improvements over Docker Toolbox. During this week’s Docker Online Meetup, Product Managers Michael Chiang and Dave Tucker presented an overview of Docker for Mac and Windows followed by a demo of the beta and a Q&A session. Below are the recorded video and slides from the Docker Online Meetup.

Docker for Mac and Windows Beta: the simplest way to use Docker on your laptop

Since June 20th, 2016, Docker for Mac and Windows are now publicly available. You can download them at docker.com/products/overview   To celebrate Docker’s third birthday, today we start a limited availability beta program for Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows, an integrated, easy-to-deploy environment for building, assembling, and shipping applications from Mac or Windows. Docker for Mac and Windows contain many improvements over Docker Toolbox.

Scaling Docker with Swarm

We are extremely excited to announce the first beta release of Swarm, a native clustering tool for Docker. For the past two years, Docker has made the lives of millions of developers easier by making building, shipping and running applications simpler through containers. However, things get complicated when dealing with more than one host for Docker containers in a distributed environment.  This is where Swarm comes in. Swarm pools together several Docker Engines and exposes them as a single virtual Docker Engine. It serves the standard Docker API, so any tool that already works with Docker can now transparently scale up to multiple hosts.
