We Had a Whale of a Time at LinuxCon and ContainerCon!

Docker and the Docker team made quite a splash in Seattle last week at LinuxCon, ContainerCon and all of the other co-located events! Below are some of the Docker team’s favorite memories from the week.

Your Docker Agenda for LinuxCon

Docker and containers are making a big splash in Seattle next week! LinuxCon runs from Monday, August 17 through Wednesday, August 19 but there are plenty of co-located events during the week including ContainerCon, MesosCon and the Linux Plumbers Conference. Below is our list of the must-attend talks at the different events in Seattle next week. We know the timing of several talks conflict – thankfully, they will be recorded! Docker’s SVP of Engineering Marianna Tessel will be delivering a keynote during the morning on Monday, August 17th – click here to sign up for the livestream of her talk!

Orchestrating Docker with Machine, Swarm and Compose

Back in December, we announced our new tools for orchestrating distributed apps: Machine, Swarm, and Compose. Today the first versions of these tools are available to download. They’re not ready for production yet, but we’d really like for you to try them out and tell us what you think. Machine takes you from “zero-to-Docker” with a single command. It lets you easily deploy Docker Engines on your computer, on cloud providers, and in your own data center. Read more and download on Machine’s blog post. Swarm is native clustering for Docker containers. It pools together several Docker Engines into a single, virtual host. Point a Docker client or third party tool (e.g., Compose, Dokku, Shipyard, Jenkins, the Docker client, etc.) at Swarm and it will transparently scale to multiple hosts. A beta version of Swarm is now available, and we’re Continue reading…

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.

Docker workshop #2 @Twitter

The second Docker Workshop in San Francisco was hosted by Twitter on November 5th. About 100 participants joined the workshop to get their hands on Docker. The audience was split up into 2 groups based on level and interest so that we could address different topics. While the beginners were given an introduction to Docker, CLI and dockerfile basics, the more advanced people learned how to Dockerize an application and how to use their own private registry.
