Video Series: Modernizing .NET Apps for Developers

 Docker Enterprise Edition (EE)  is the container platform for modernizing your existing applications, and running them in the cloud or on-premises. You can take monoliths and run them in containers with no code changes, and that gets you portability, security and efficiency. Running in Docker is also a great starting point for modernizing the application architecture. You can breaking down the monolith into smaller, independent components which makes it easier to deploy updates, manage scale and introduce new technologies. This new video series covers app modernization, for .NET developers and architects. It walks through the evolution of a monolithic ASP.NET 3.5 app to a distributed application running across multiple containers, using the Docker platform to plug everything together and adding features with great open-source software from the Docker ecosystem. This is not a full re-architecture to microservices – for large .NET apps Continue reading…

Docker Compose and Kubernetes with Docker for Desktop

If you’re running an edge version of Docker on your desktop (Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows Desktop), you can now stand up a single-node Kubernetes cluster with the click of a button. While I’m not a developer, I think this is great news for the millions of developers who have already been using Docker on their Macbook or Windows laptop because they now have a fully compliant Kubernetes cluster at their fingertips without installing any other tools. Developers using Docker to build containerized applications often build Docker Compose files to deploy them. With the integration of Kubernetes into the Docker product line, some developers may want to leverage their existing Compose files but deploy these applications in Kubernetes. There is, of course, Kompose, but that’s a translation layer which causes you to have two separate artifacts to manage. Is there a Continue reading…

Docker for Windows Desktop 18.02 with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

The headline feature in Docker for Windows Desktop 18.02 is the option for an automated Kubernetes cluster, enabling native support of your favorite Kubernetes tools with Linux containers on your Windows desktop. That’s a big deal. You can try it out by using the whale icon in the system tray to set Docker for Windows Desktop into Linux containers mode, and then enabling Kubernetes support via the Settings menu. If you use current Windows 10 Insider builds please be aware of a Windows platform issue that affects Linux containers in Docker for Windows Desktop. But that’s not all. This post covers additional progress on experimental support for Microsoft’s Linux containers on Windows (LCOW). Docker for Windows 18.02 now supports Linux and Windows containers running side-by-side via LCOW, using a single Docker daemon. More on the evolution of LCOW: Docker for Windows 17.11 with Windows Continue reading…

Integrating CI/CD with Docker Enterprise Edition – Demo Webinar Recap

Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) methodologies are key traits of a modern software development practice. Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) can be a catalyst for this DevOps mindset, integrating with your preferred tools and existing practices to improve the quality and speed at which innovation is delivered. In our recent webinar, Integrating CI/CD with Docker Enterprise Edition, we walked through an example where a developer is using GitLab as the CI tool of choice. If you missed the webinar, you can watch the demo here: Here are some of the top questions from the webinar: Q: Can you explain the process for deploying the application to production shown in the demo? A: This example leveraged a capability called image promotions to automatically push an approved image to the “prod” repository. The policy was defined to look for images in the “dev” Continue reading…

Docker for Windows Desktop… Now With Kubernetes!

Today we are excited to announce the beta for Docker for Windows Desktop with integrated Kubernetes is now available in the edge channel! This release includes Kubernetes 1.8, just like the Docker for Mac and Docker Enterprise Edition and will allow you to develop Linux containers. The easiest way to get Kubernetes on your desktop is here. Simply check the box and go What You Can Do with Kubernetes on your desktop? Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows are the most popular way to configure a Docker dev environment, and are each used everyday by millions of developers to build, test, and debug containerized apps. The beauty of building with Docker for Mac or Windows is that you can deploy the exact same set of Docker container images on your desktop as you do on your production systems with Docker EE. Docker for Mac and Docker for Continue reading…

Role-based Access Control for Kubernetes with Docker EE

Last week we released the latest beta for Docker Enterprise Edition. Without a doubt one of the most significant features in this release is providing a single management control plane for both Swarm and Kubernetes-based clusters – including clusters made up of both Swarm and Kubernetes workers. This offers customers unparalleled choice in how they manage both their traditional and cloud native applications. When we were looking at doing this release we knew we couldn’t just slap a GUI on top of Kubernetes and call it good. We wanted to find areas where we could simplify and secure the deployment of  applications onto Kubernetes nodes. One such area is role-based access control (RBAC). Docker EE 17.06 introduced an enhanced RBAC solution that provided flexible and granular access controls across multiple teams and users. While Kubernetes first introduced a basic RBAC solution with the Continue reading…

Beta for Docker Enterprise Edition with Kubernetes Integration Now Available

Today we are excited to launch the public beta for Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE), our container management platform. First announced at DockerCon Europe, this release features Kubernetes integration as an optional orchestration solution, running side-by-side with Docker Swarm. With this solution, organizations will be able to deploy applications with either Swarm or fully-conformant Kubernetes while maintaining the consistent developer-to-IT workflow users have come to expect from Docker, especially when combined with the recent edge release of Docker for Mac with Kubernetes support. In addition to Kubernetes, this release includes enhancements to Swarm and to Docker Trusted Registry (DTR) which can be tested during the beta period. Due to the high interest in this beta, license keys will be rolled out in batches over the next few weeks. Individuals who signed up for beta at www.docker.com/kubernetes will receive instructions on how to access this release and Continue reading…
