If you were surfing AWS’ homepage this morning you may have seen the Docker “win whale” on display. That’s because today Amazon and Docker are announcing that AWS Elastic Beanstalk, now fully supports running and managing dockerized applications.
This is a great win for developers using Docker and AWS. After building and testing their application in a Docker container on their laptop, developers can now ship it to AWS Elastic Beanstalk, which auto-magically manages the runtime provisioning, load balancing, and auto-scaling. And should developers wish for a bit more runtime control, they can ship the same container – unchanged – to Amazon EC2, which began including Docker in the AWS Linux AMI last month.
With over 1.2 million downloads, over 10,000 dockerized applications, and support in products from AWS, Red Hat, Google, Canonical, IBM, Rackspace, Cloud Foundry, OpenStack, and many others, Docker is quickly becoming the de facto standard for building, shipping, and running applications. Similarly, as illustrated recently in RightScale’s 2014 State of the Cloud Survey, AWS continues to lead the cloud services market. Together, Docker and AWS are providing developers with great solutions to accelerate the app lifecycle, from the first line of code to production deployment. Keep watching this space!
Dockerize early and often,
