Visa Inc. Gains Speed and Operational Efficiency with Docker Enterprise Edition

DockerCon 2017 was an opportunity to hear from customers across multiple industries and segments on how they are leveraging Docker technology to accelerate their business. In the keynote on Day 2 and also a breakout session that afternoon, Visa shared how Docker Enterprise Edition is empowering them on their mission to make global economies safer by digitizing currency and making electronic payments available to everyone, everywhere.   Visa is the world’s largest retail electronic payment network that handles 130 billion transactions a year, processing $5.8 trillion annually. Swamy Kocherlakota, Global Head of Infrastructure and Operations, shared that Visa got here by expanding their global footprint which has put pressure on his organization which has remained mostly flat in headcount during that time. Since going into production with their Docker Containers-as-a-Service architecture 6 months ago, Swamy has seen a 10x increase in Continue reading…

Learn Docker with our DockerCon 2017 Hands-On Labs

We’re excited to announce that DockerCon 2017 will feature a comprehensive set of hands-on labs. We first introduced hands-on labs at DockerCon EU in 2015, and they were also part of DockerCon 2016 last year in Seattle. This year we’re offering a broader range of topics that cover the interests of both developers and operations personnel on both Windows and Linux (see below for a full list) These hands-on labs are designed to be self-paced, and are run on the attendee’s laptop. But, don’t worry, all the infrastructure will be hosted again this year on Microsoft Azure. So, all you will need is a laptop capable of instantiating a remote session over SSH (for Linux) or RDP (for Windows). We’ll have a nice space set up in between the ecosystem expo and breakout rooms for you to work on the labs. Continue reading…

Understanding Docker Networking Drivers and their use cases

Applications requirements and networking environments are diverse and sometimes opposing forces. In between applications and the network sits Docker networking, affectionately called the Container Network Model or CNM. It’s CNM that brokers connectivity for your Docker containers and also what abstracts away the diversity and complexity so common in networking. The result is portability and it comes from CNM’s powerful network drivers. These are pluggable interfaces for the Docker Engine, Swarm, and UCP that provide special capabilities like multi-host networking, network layer encryption, and service discovery. Naturally, the next question is which network driver should I use? Each driver offers tradeoffs and has different advantages depending on the use case. There are built-in network drivers that come included with Docker Engine and there are also plug-in network drivers offered by networking vendors and the community. The most commonly used built-in network drivers Continue reading…

Get to Know the Docker Datacenter Networking Updates

The latest release of Docker Datacenter (DDC) on Docker Engine 1.12 brings many new networking features that were designed with service discovery and high availability in mind. As organizations continue their journey towards modernizing legacy apps and microservices architectures, these new features were created to address modern day infrastructure demands. DDC builds on and extends the built-in orchestration capabilities including declarative services, scheduling, networking and security features of Engine 1.12. In addition to these new features, we published a new Reference Architecture to help guide you in designing and implementing this for your unique application requirements. Among the new features in DDC are: DNS for service discovery Automatic internal service load balancing Cluster-wide transport-layer (L4) load balancing Cluster-wide application-layer (L7) load balancing using the new HTTP Routing Mesh (HRM) experimental feature   When creating a microservice architecture where services are often Continue reading…

Docker at Tech Field Day 12

Docker will be presenting at Tech Field Day 12, and you can sit in on the sessions – at least virtually. Tech Field Day is an opportunity for IT practitioners to hear from some of the leading technology companies, and Docker is excited to be participating again. Many thanks to Stephen Foskett and Tom Hollingsworth for cultivating a vibrant community of technical leaders and evangelists and inviting us to participate. Looking forward to meeting more of the delegates. Our session will be Wednesday, November 16th, from 4:30 to 6:30pm Pacific. We have a full slate of topics including: Docker Datacenter: What is Docker Datacenter and how can it help organizations implement their own Container as a Service platform. Docker for Windows Server: An overview of the integration of Docker containers and Windows Server 2016. Docker for AWS and Docker for Azure: Continue reading…

Voting with Docker: A little break from the election

You may have heard, there’s an election for president (and many other posts) going on in the US today. For those who already voted, who want a break from voting, or just want to create a new quiz for their friends, we have the Docker Example Voting App. And we’ve even created a poll to help you figure out the best quiz to make. Which #Docker voting app face off would you select? #TwitterPoll #ElectionDay — Docker (@docker) November 8, 2016 The voting app was created to showcase a number of features of Docker: Polyglot development environments: The app has Python, Node.js, and .NET code, as well as Redis and Postgres services. Easy deployment of a multi-service app with Docker Compose. Easy Docker Networking. All this using a simple $ docker-compose up. The Example Voting App has been really popular at Continue reading…
