Docker + Red Hat = Even More Goodness

It’ll be no surprise to the Docker community that Docker and Red Hat have been working together on a number of fronts during the last nine months or so.  Today at the Red Hat Summit we’re excited to announce several initiatives that, thanks to everyone’s efforts, are ready to see the light of day:

  • Expansion of RHEL 7.0 Beta to include Docker container technologies.  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 is currently in beta and is targeted to be a Red Hat certified container host, with Docker as a primary supported container format;

  • Docker Integration with OpenShift PaaS.  Application containers in OpenShift will be integrated with Docker and support Red Hat certified ISV applications packaged in the Docker container format. These same containerized applications will also be supported on other Red Hat products;

  • Red Hat Certification.  As revealed last month, Red Hat is launching certification of applications delivered in the Docker container format – Dockerize All The Things!

  • One More Thing.  Finally, in addition to the above, for enterprise IT orgs conducting projects with Docker and Red Hat, Docker, Inc. has developed additional service offerings, including developer support and a JumpStart program.

This enthusiasm for the Docker + Red Hat solutions is driven, in a large part, as a result of Docker’s widespread adoption over the last 12 months, including…

  • Contributions from more than 400 developers;

  • More than 1.4 million downloads;

  • More than 9,000 Dockerized applications available in Docker’s public index; and

  • Accelerating community engagement, including more than 77 Docker Meetup groups in 30 countries.

Obviously, the above is just the tip of the iceberg, and there are lots of details to share.  For those details as well as t-shirts, stickers, and super-secret new swag foam containers, please swing by booth #906 in the Red Hat Summit Partner Pavilion!
