Docker Enterprise Edition for Linux on IBM Z (yes, mainframe!)

Recently we released a new version of Docker Enterprise Edition featuring expansion of the multi-architecture capabilities from Linux to Windows Server and now the IBM Z mainframe platform. Enterprise IT architecture is complex and diverse and include workloads across different server hardware types and operating systems. Docker and IBM have partnered together to deliver the support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for IBM Z (x390x) systems as certified infrastructure for Docker Enterprise Edition (EE). This first release features support for the the IBM Z product family. Why bring Docker containers and mainframe systems together? Enterprises across industries like financial services, government, manufacturing and more use mainframe systems for many high throughput applications. Many organizations recognize that these applications are at the core of their systems but rewriting and refactoring them for a different platform is Continue reading…

Docker and Booz Allen Hamilton Modernize Traditional Apps in Government IT

Existing applications and infrastructure account for the majority of IT spend in maintenance and support. Docker and Booz Allen Hamilton are partnering together to help Federal agencies modernize traditional apps with Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), deploy onto modern infrastructure to save infrastructure and operational costs, increase security and gain workload portability. This program helps accelerate the path to modern microservices and infrastructure with containers: First by containerizing the app in place and using container architecture to break up the app into smaller services over time The full stack portability provided by Docker EE allows for workload consolidation for greater app density per server, accelerate hardware refresh cycles and cloud migration. Lastly, Docker EE provides new levels of security for the legacy app. Scanning provides binary level visibility into components and their security profile for proactive remediation and configurable isolation properties Continue reading…
