Docker 1.11: The first runtime built on containerd and based on OCI technology

We are excited to introduce Docker Engine 1.11, our first release built on runC ™ and containerd ™. With this release, Docker is the first to ship a runtime based on OCI technology, demonstrating the progress the team has made since donating our industry-standard container format and runtime under the Linux Foundation in June of 2015. Over the last year, Docker has helped advance the work of the OCI to make it more readily available to more users. It started in December 2015, when we introduced containerd ™, a daemon to control runC. This was part of our effort to break out Docker into small reusable components. With this release, Docker Engine is now built on containerd, so everyone who is using Docker is now using OCI. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made on the OCI with the 40+ members to continue the work to standardize container Continue reading…

Docker 1.10: New Compose file, improved security, networking and much more!

We’re pleased to announce Docker 1.10, jam-packed with stuff you’ve been asking for. It’s now much easier to define and run complex distributed apps with Docker Compose. The power that Compose brought to orchestrating containers is now available for setting up networks and volumes. On your development machine, you can set up your app with multiple network tiers and complex storage configurations, replicating how you might set it up in production. You can then take that same configuration from development, and use it to run your app on CI, on staging, and right through into production. Check out the blog post about the new Compose file to find out more.

Announcing Docker Toolbox: The fastest way to get Docker running in development

Today we’re announcing a new installer for Mac OS X and Windows called Docker Toolbox. We’ve been hearing again and again that it can be difficult to get up and started with Docker in development, particularly when you’ve got your app defined with Compose and then have to install Compose separately. With the popularity of Compose, Kitematic and Boot2Docker, we realized we needed to make all the pieces work better together.

Docker Tutorial 9 – Docker Machine

This is a casual Docker tutorial series. We started out first with very simple sessions on how to install and use the docker run command. In future videos we will hit more advanced topics.   This ninth video talks about Docker Machine. We will cover basic installation and show how to create docker hosts on Virtualbox, Digital Ocean and Amazon’s EC2.

Docker Online Meetup: Kitematic in action

Three weeks ago, we announced that Kitematic, an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) for running Docker containers on your Mac, was joining the Docker family. Today we’re happy to share with you the video recording from the last Docker Online Meetup about Kitematic (for those of you who missed the livestream). In this video, the founders of Kitematic first explain how Kitematic works under the hood, then move on to a couple live demos to finally wrap up by answering questions from the audience.
