Three new Official Images added in March

We’re excited to announce three new Official Images that we added to Docker Hub in March. These images are part of Docker’s mission to add robust, enterprise-ready development technologies to the Docker ecosystem.
Check them out:


Alpine Linux is a Linux distribution built around musl libc and BusyBox. The image is only 5 MB in size and has access to a package repository that is much more complete than other BusyBox-based images. This makes Alpine Linux a great image base for utilities and even production applications.


Logstash is a tool that can be used to collect, process, and forward events and log messages.  Collection is accomplished via a number of configurable input plugins, including raw socket/packet communication, file tailing, and several message-bus clients.  Once an input plugin has collected data, it can modify and annotate it through a variety of filters.  Finally, events are routed to output plugins, which can forward them to a number of external programs, including Elasticsearch, local files, and several message-bus implementations.


Julia is a high-level, high-performance, dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments.  It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library.
In the past year alone, Docker users and partners have created 100,000+ images and pulled 200+ million images from Docker Hub.  These images are the containerized building blocks that allow Docker users to build modular applications.  We’re excited to add Alpine Linux, Logstash, and Julia to the Docker community.
