Hello from San Francisco! Tuesday we kicked off the first day of DockerCon with general session jam packed with inspiration, demos and customer guest speakers.
Steve Singh, our CEO and Chairman opened the session with Docker’s promise to ensure freedom of choice, agility in development and operations and pervasive security in a container platform that can help unlock the potential for innovation in every company. Docker will deliver an integrated toolset with a delightful user experience that needs innovators like you.
Day one also featured three demos of new technologies capabilities for both Docker Desktop and Docker Enterprise Edition. These features are not yet generally available but released and those interested in the beta can sign up here to be notified.
- Docker Desktop features a graphical user interface, templates and workflows in addition to existing CLI to make it easy for new developers to build container applications
- Docker Enterprise Edition integrates Windows Server support with Kubernetes. Docker Enterprise Edition already integrates Kubernetes for Linux containers and is now extending the operational model for Windows Server.
- Federated Application Management in Docker Enterprise Edition to federate across on premise clusters and cloud hosted Kubernetes services like GKE, AKS, EKS with a single pane of glass.
Guests speakers, Rashmi Kumar SVP Supply Chain and Andy Zitney, SVP Enterprise Platforms, Architecture and Innovation from McKesson took to the stage to share their story of how Docker works for McKesson. The talk featured two distinct ways that containerization is helping transform McKesson; from helping digitize their pharmaceutical supply chain that handles ⅓ of the prescriptions in North America to how a newly formed McKesson Labs is giving their developers superpowers by empowering them with Docker.
