We are excited to highlight thirteen new Official Repositories that were added to Docker Hub in January and February. These repos feature popular open-source and enterprise content that will empower dev teams to build and deploy distributed applications. Check them out:
Celery is an asynchronous task/job queue based on distributed message-passing. Celery is written in Python, but the protocol can be implemented in any language. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well. Celery is used in production systems to process millions of tasks a day.
Elasticsearch is a search server based on Lucene. It provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a RESTful web interface and schema-free JSON documents.
Oracle Linux is an open-source operating system available under the GNU General Public License (GPLv2). Suitable for general-purpose or Oracle workloads, it benefits from rigorous testing of more than 128,000 hours per day with real-world workloads and includes unique innovations such as Ksplice for zero-downtime kernel patching, DTrace for real-time diagnostics, and Btrfs file system.
Odoo, formerly known as OpenERP, is a suite of open-source business apps written in Python and released under the AGPL license. This suite of applications covers all business needs, from e-commerce down to manufacturing, inventory and accounting, all seamlessly integrated. With over two million users, Odoo is the most-installed business software in the world.
Irssi is a terminal-based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC and ICB protocols via plugins. Irssi features auto-logging, a variety of formats and themes, configurable keybindings, paste detection, perl scripting, and proxy support.
RethinkDB is an open-source, distributed database built to store JSON documents and effortlessly scale to multiple machines. It’s easy to set up and learn and features a simple but powerful query language that supports table joins, groupings, aggregations, and functions.
swarm is a simple tool that controls a cluster of Docker hosts and exposes it as a single ‘virtual’ host. swarm uses the standard Docker API as its front-end, so any tool that speaks Docker can control swarm transparently: dokku, fig, krane, flynn, deis, docker-ui, shipyard, drone.io, Jenkins, and the Docker client itself. swarm follows the ‘batteries included but removable’ principle—it ships with a simple scheduling back-end out of the box, and as initial development settles, an API will develop to enable pluggable back-ends.
This image contains IBM WebSphere Application Server for Developers Liberty Profile and the IBM Java Runtime Environment. The Liberty Profile is a dynamic profile of WAS that enables the WAS server to provision only the features required by the application (or set of applications) deployed to the server.
Jetty is a pure Java-based HTTP (Web) server and Java Servlet container. While Web Servers are usually associated with serving documents to people, Jetty is now often used for machine-to-machine communications, usually within larger software frameworks. Jetty is developed as a free and open-source project as part of the Eclipse Foundation.
Ghost is a platform dedicated to one thing: publishing your content. It’s beautifully designed, completely customizable, and entirely open-source. Ghost allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even fun to do.
Percona Server is a free, open source MySQL alternative which offers breakthrough performance, scalability, features, and instrumentation. It is optimized for cloud computing, NoSQL access, and modern hardware such as SSD and Flash storage. Percona Server has been used in a variety of production applications, and downloaded over 1.4 million times.
Aerospike is an open-source, distributed database. Aerospike is built on a ‘shared nothing’ architecture designed to reliably store terabytes of data with automatic fail-over, replication and cross data-center synchronization. Aerospike features a patent-pending flash optimization with a hybrid RAM/flash-storage architecture.
With over 85,000 registered applications and over 100 million container downloads in 2014, Docker Hub is increasingly becoming a key part of engineering teams’ workflows. The Dockerized apps on Docker Hub are prefabricated building blocks that dev teams can use to build modular applications. We’re excited to bring on partners like these to add valuable content and technology diversity to our community.
