Introducing Play with Kubernetes

Every month for the last year, thousands of people have used Play with Docker and the accompanying hands-on Play with Docker Classroom training site. These sites allow you to use and learn Docker entirely within your own browser, without installing anything. Last summer, we quietly launched the companion site Play with Kubernetes, to give people a full command line while learning Kubernetes on the command line. And today we’re launching a new Kubernetes training site, the Play with Kubernetes Classroom. The Play with Kubernetes Classroom is a workshop environment just like the Play with Docker Classroom. We currently have an extensive Kubernetes workshop originally based on Jérôme Petazzoni’s Container Training Kubernetes workshop. But instead of doing it all locally or setting up VMs in the cloud, you can now run through the workshop entirely in the browser. Like the Play with Docker Classroom, we’ll be Continue reading…

Plan Your DockerCon 2018 Conference Experience: Everything an Enterprise Architect Needs to Know

DockerConSan Francisco 2018 is just around the corner and we’re here to help Enterprise Architects learn what Docker can do for them. DockerCon isn’t just for developers and we want to help you find the sessions and experiences that we’ve created that are developed with this role in mind: In 2015, I attended DockerCon for the first time.

Freedom from Lock-in With Docker Enterprise Edition

Major business initiatives such as digitization and cloud migration have threatened to disrupt IT organizations that are already spread thin simply supporting the core business. Containerization is viewed as a way to help with these initiatives because they speed the delivery of software and typically cut operational costs by more than 50% in the first year alone. To support a containerization strategy, many enterprises are turning to container platforms to manage and secure the delivery of their mission-critical software from development through production. For customers, choosing the right container platform is more than a technical decision – it is a business decision. As with any decision of this nature, it is critical that the container solution has the flexibility to evolve as business requirements change. Unfortunately, all container platforms are not the same – some lack security while others force Continue reading…

Integrating Kubernetes with Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 – Top 10 Questions from the Docker Virtual Event

At our recent virtual event, we shared our excitement around Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 2.0 – the most complete enterprise-ready container platform in the market. We shared how this release enables organizations like Liberty Mutual and Franklin American Mortgage Company, both presenters at DockerCon 2018, to efficiently scale their container environment across many teams while delivering choice and flexibility. We demonstrated some of the new advanced capabilities around access controls with secure application zones and building a consistent software supply chain across regions, and highlighted how easy and interchangeable it is to leverage both Swarm and Kubernetes orchestration in the same environment.

Docker Compose and Kubernetes with Docker for Desktop

With KubeCon EU happening in Copenhagen, we looked back at the most popular posts with our readers on Docker and Kubernetes. For those of you that have yet to try Docker EE 2.0, this blog highlights how in Docker for Desktops you can use Docker compose to directly deploy an application onto a Kubernetes cluster.  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 Continue reading…
