Docker Pals Program 2019

At DockerCon Copenhagen we launched the Docker Pals program in order to connect attendees and help them make the most out of their trip. Attending a conference for the first time or by yourself can be intimidating and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at DockerCon! Pals get matched with a few others who are new (the “Pals”), and someone who knows their way around (the “Guide”) so you will have a familiar group before you arrive at the conference. Guides help Pals figure out which talks and activities to attend, and are available for questions. This year we are excited to grow the program, matching more groups and adding Meet-and-Greets throughout the week. You won’t want to miss the best version of Docker Pals yet!          Here’s what Pals had to say about DockerCon Barcelona: “Docker Pals Continue reading…

Happy Pi Day with Docker and Raspberry Pi

What better way to say “Happy Pi Day” than by installing Docker Engine – Community (CE) 18.09 on Raspberry Pi. This article will walk you through the process of installing Docker Engine 18.09 on a Raspberry Pi. There are many articles out there that show this process, but many failed due to older Engine versions and some syntax issues. Special thanks to Docker Solutions Engineer, Stefan Scherer and his monitoring image (stefanscherer/monitor) along with the whoami image (stefanscherer/whoami) that allows Pimoroni Blinkt! LED’s to turn on/off when scaling an application within a Swarm Cluster.   Instructions For this demo, I used 7 Raspberry Pi’s 3 (model B+) and 1 Pimoroni Blinkt! LED for each Pi. 1. Download the following Raspian image ‘2018-11-13-raspbian-stretch-full.img’ from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ 2. Use balenaEtcher to write the image to each of your microusb cards. 3. To make DNS Continue reading…

containerd Graduates Within the CNCF

We are happy to announce that as of today, containerd, an industry-standard runtime for building container solutions, graduates within the CNCF. The successful graduation demonstrates containerd has achieved the maturity, stability and community acceptance required for broad ecosystem adoption. containerd has already been deployed in tens of millions of production systems today, making it the most widely adopted runtime and an essential upstream component of the Docker platform. containerd was donated to the CNCF as a top-level project because of its strong alignment with Kubernetes, gRPC and Prometheus and is the fifth project to make it to this tier. Built to address the needs of modern container platforms like Docker Enterprise and orchestration systems like Kubernetes, containerd ensures users have a consistent dev to ops experience. From Docker’s initial announcement that it was spinning out its core runtime to its donation to the CNCF in March Continue reading…

Docker’s 6th Birthday: How do you #Docker?

    Docker is turning 6 years old! Over the years, Docker Community members have found some amazing and innovative ways of using Docker technology and we’ve been blown away by all the use-cases we’ve seen from the community at DockerCon. From Docker for Space where NASA used Docker technology to build software to deflect asteroids to using “gloo” to glue together traditional apps, microservices and serverless, you all continue to amaze us year over year. So this year, we want to celebrate you! From March 18th to the 31st, Docker User Groups all over the world will be hosting local birthday show-and-tell celebrations. Participants will each have 10-15 minutes of stage time to present how they’ve been using Docker. Think of these as lightning talks – your show-and-tell doesn’t need to be polished and it can absolutely be a fun hack and/or Continue reading…

Docker Desktop Enterprise Preview: Version Packs

This is the first in a series of articles we are publishing to provide more details on Docker Desktop Enterprise, which we announced at DockerCon Barcelona. Keep up with the latest Docker Desktop Enterprise news and release updates by signing up for the Docker Desktop Enterprise announcement list. Docker’s engineers have been hard at work completing features and getting everything in ship-shape (pun intended) following our announcement of Docker Desktop Enterprise, a new desktop product that is the easiest, fastest and most secure way to develop production-ready containerized applications and the easiest way for developers to get Kubernetes running on their own machine. In the first post of this series I want to highlight how we are working to bridge the gap between development and production with Docker Desktop Enterprise using our new Version Packs feature. Version Packs let you easily swap your Continue reading…

Docker Security Update: CVE-2019-5736 and Container Security Best Practices

On Monday, February 11, Docker released an update to fix a privilege escalation vulnerability (CVE-2019-5736) in runC, the Open Container Initiative (OCI) runtime specification used in Docker Engine and containerd. This vulnerability makes it possible for a malicious actor that has created a specially-crafted container image to gain administrative privileges on the host. Docker engineering worked with runC maintainers on the OCI to issue a patch for this vulnerability. Docker recommends immediately applying the update to avoid any potential security threats. For Docker Engine-Community, this means updating to 18.09.2 or 18.06.3. For Docker Engine- Enterprise, this means updating to 18.09.2, 18.03.1-ee-6, or 17.06.2-ee-19. Read the release notes before applying the update due to specific instructions for Ubuntu and RHEL operating systems. For Docker Desktop, users should download the update for Mac or Windows. Summary of the Docker Engine versions that address the vulnerability:   Continue reading…
