Yandex using Docker for infrastructure virtualization and app isolation

Jérôme Petazzoni


We are proud to announce that Yandex, the largest tech company in Russia, is using Docker for infrastructure virtualization and app isolation of its open-source PaaS system called Cocaine. The news was released at the YaC 2013 technological conference that took place on October 2 in Moscow, and where Jérôme Petazzoni was invited to give a talk on Lightweight Virtualization with Linux Containers and Docker and meet the Yandex team.

The Docker support is implemented as a plugin, which connects to the Docker daemon and controls it using a rich REST API.

Right now, Yandex is using Cocaine in their Yandex.Browser backend and their internal infrastructure.

About Jérôme Petazzoni


Jérôme is a senior engineer at dotCloud, where he rotates between Ops, Support and Evangelist duties and has earned the nickname of “master Yoda”. In a previous life he built and operated large scale Xen hosting back when EC2 was just the name of a plane, supervized the deployment of fiber interconnects through the French subway, built a specialized GIS to visualize fiber infrastructure, specialized in commando deployments of large-scale computer systems in bandwidth-constrained environments such as conference centers, and various other feats of technical wizardry. He cares for the servers powering dotCloud, helps our users feel at home on the platform, and documents the many ways to use dotCloud in articles, tutorials and sample applications. He’s also an avid dotCloud power user who has deployed just about anything on dotCloud – look for one of his many custom services on our Github repository.
