Announcing Docker Cloud

Borja Burgos

Today we are proud to announce the immediate general availability of Docker Cloud. And we are excited to invite and welcome everyone of you to try it out. Docker Cloud is the name of the new cloud service by Docker that expands on the features of Tutum, brings a tighter integration with Docker Hub, and provides new updates and fixes.

dockercloud-cloud-sticker-finalIn many ways, Docker Cloud is the manifestation of the generally available Tutum that users have been clamoring for, but Docker Cloud is much more than that. Over the past few months our team has been hard at work building native integration with Docker Hub, Docker ID (the new shared account system across all Docker services), Docker official repositories, commercially supported Docker Engine (CS Engine), and adding a new forum for all Docker Cloud discussions.

Docker Cloud is where developers and IT ops meet to build, ship and run any application, anywhere. With Docker Cloud you can easily:

  • Deploy and scale any application to your cloud in seconds, with just a few clicks
  • Continuously deliver your code with integrated and automated build, test, and deployment workflows
  • Get visibility across all your containers across your entire infrastructure
  • Access the service programmatically via a RESTful API or a developer friendly CLI tool
  • and much more…

And we’re just getting started. The team is focused on delivering many new features over the next months. These include: adding collaboration capabilities for teams and organizations and continuing to expand the Docker platform capabilities available as a service in Docker Cloud.


To help you get started with Docker Cloud, we’re giving a free first node and private repository to everyone that logs in with their Docker ID at We can’t wait for you to try it out for yourself, and experience how easy it is to manage all your applications and infrastructure using Docker Cloud. In order to make Docker Cloud universally accessible, it is being offered through a simple consumption-based pricing model. You’ll be happy to learn that additional nodes are available at only $0.02/node/hour (including email & in-app support).

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our early beta users – without your support and feedback we wouldn’t find ourselves here today. Furthermore, we’d like to invite you to join us in congratulating the Docker Cloud team on reaching this milestone. And challenge them to continue building truly innovative software to improve how our customers build, ship and run their applications in the cloud.

Here are some resources to get you started:

  1. What about a roadmap on features / bugfixes / improvements? I get the gist that the momentum of tutum / docker cloud has stalled. There are serious issues that need to be adressed to make this suitable for long term live deployments.

  2. Thanks for your feedback and for sharing your concerns with us; while it may appear that the momentum has stalled for Docker Cloud / Tutum we want to reassure to you that isn’t the case. We’ve actually got more people than ever dedicated to Docker Cloud and its success. The last few months we’ve undergone a complex re-architecting of the service to integrate well with Docker’s other commercial solutions and to ensure the service was ready for GA and to scale to our user’s satisfaction. We’ve got a ton of new features and improvements in the pipeline that we can’t wait to share with you. At this time we’re exploring different approaches to sharing our product and development initiatives with our users – stay tuned for more on that. Thanks for your ongoing support.
