Announcing Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0

  We are excited to announce Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 – a significant leap forward in our enterprise-ready container platform. Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 2.0 is the only platform that manages and secures applications on Kubernetes in multi-Linux, multi-OS and multi-cloud customer environments. As a complete platform that integrates and scales with your organization, Docker EE 2.0 gives you the most flexibility and choice over the types of applications supported, orchestrators used, and where it’s deployed. It also enables organizations to operationalize Kubernetes more rapidly with streamlined workflows and helps you deliver safer applications through integrated security solutions. In this blog post, we’ll walk through some of the key new capabilities of Docker EE 2.0. Eliminate Your Fear of Lock-in As containerization becomes core to your IT strategy, the importance of having a platform that supports choice becomes even more Continue reading…

Scalable, Flexible Networking Included in Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0

    Docker believes in making technology easy to use and accessible and that approach also extends to our enterprise-ready container platform. That means providing out-of-the-box integrations to key extensions of the platform that enterprise organizations require, but also making it possible to swap these built-in solutions with other tools as desired. Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0, integrates Kubernetes to our platform and delivers the only Kubernetes platform that can be deployed across multiple clouds and multiple operating systems. As part of this release, we have included Project Calico by Tigera as the “batteries included” Kubernetes CNI plug-in for a highly scalable, industry-leading networking and routing solution. Why Project Calico? While we support our customers using their preferred CNI plug-in, we chose to integrate Project Calico for our built-in solution because it aligns well with our design objectives for Docker EE Continue reading…

Running Docker on Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0

Did you know that Docker Hub has millions of users pulling roughly one billion container images every two weeks — and it all runs on Docker Enterprise Edition? Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 may now be available to commercial customers who require an enterprise-ready container platform, but the Docker operations team has already been using it in production for some time. As part of our commitment to delivering high quality software that is ready to support your mission-critical applications, we leverage Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 as the platform behind Docker Hub and our other SaaS services, Docker Store, and Docker Cloud. Some organizations call it “dogfooding;” some call it “drinking your own champagne.” Whatever you call it, the importance of this program is to be fully invested in our own container platform and share in the same operational experiences as our Continue reading…

Embark on your Docker Containerization journey at DockerCon 2018

DockerCon is the premier container conference where the IT industry comes together to learn, belong, and collaborate on the different phases of the containerization journey. This year, we’re focusing on helping our 6,000+ attendees define their containerization journeys. Whether you’re a developer just getting started with Docker or an Enterprise systems architect ready to scale and innovate, at DockerCon we’ll help you map out and implement a containerization strategy for you, your team and your company. Throughout the four days, you’ll have the chance to design your own DockerCon journey – selecting from 7 different breakout session tracks, a collection of free hands-on labs and workshops, and our peer to peer networking Hallway Track. This year at DockerCon we’re designing our conference around the containerization journey and providing opportunities for our attendees to create tailored learning and networking experiences for Continue reading…

Docker Birthday #5: Thank you Docker Community! 

Last month, Docker turned five! In celebration of this milestone, we turned the spotlight on our amazing global community of customers, users, Community Leaders, Captains, mentors, partners and sponsors, and asked them to reflect on their Docker learning journey. Everyone came together to celebrate how far they had come, think about where they would like to go and take that next step towards reaching their goal. We had a lot of fun during the #dockerbday with the Quebec #Docker community! Thanks to @ingeno for sponsoring the event, @tnazare for the cake and for being an awesome mentor!  #dockerselfie #DockerQC pic.twitter.com/YZZNkWfWjq — Julien Maitrehenry (@jmaitrehenry) March 23, 2018 We invite you to do the same. Whether you just want to test the waters, or want to dive right in, there are a variety of ways for you to take the next Continue reading…

It’s Back… The Contribute and Collaborate track returns to DockerCon 2018

A significant number of Docker early adopters, advanced container users and Open Source lovers come to DockerCon to contribute to open source projects and collaborate on technical system implementations. Last year, these activities were taking place at the Moby Summit scheduled on the last day of the conference. Listening to feedback from attendees who expressed interest in participating in such activities earlier in the week, we’ve decided to bring back the Contribute & Collaborate track to the main conference days! The goal of this track is to raise awareness and educate users around the upstream components of the Docker Platform, provide a path for new contributors and unleash new opportunities for innovation and collaboration within the broader Cloud Native and Open Source communities. This track is organized in 4 half days (one for each of the categories below). Each will start Continue reading…

Video Series: Modernizing Java Apps for Developers Part 5

Moving a monolithic application to a modern cloud architecture can be difficult and often result in a greenfield development effort. However, it is possible to move towards a cloud architecture using Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) with no code changes and gain portability, security and efficiency in the process. To conclude the series In part 5, I use the message service’s REST endpoint to replace one part of the application UI with a Javascript client. The original application client UI was written in Java Server Pages (JSP) so that any UI changes required the application to be recompiled and redeployed. I can use modern web tools and frameworks such as React.js to write a new client interface. I’ll build the new client using a multi-stage build and deploy it by adding the container to the Docker Compose file. I’ll also show how to Continue reading…

Docker Registry API to be standardized in OCI

We are excited to announce that the Docker Registry HTTP API V2 specification will be adopted in the Open Container Initiative (OCI), the organization under the Linux Foundation that provides the standards that fuel the containerization industry. The Docker team is proud to see another aspect of our technology stack become a de-facto standard. As we’ve done with our image format, we are happy to formally share and collaborate with the container ecosystem as part of the OCI community. Our distribution protocol is the underpinning of all container registries on the market and is so robust that it is leveraged over a billion times every two weeks as container content is distributed across the globe. What does this protocol do? Putting the protocol into perspective, part of the core functionality of Docker is the ability to push and pull images. Continue reading…
