Docker Hub is home to the world’s largest library of container images. Millions of individual developers rely on Docker Hub for official and certified container images provided by independent software vendors (ISV) and the countless contributions shared by community developers and open source projects. Large enterprises can benefit from the curated content in Docker Hub by building on top of previous innovations, but these organizations often require greater control over what images are used and where they ultimately live (typically behind a firewall in a data center or cloud-based infrastructure). For these companies, building a secure content engine between Docker Hub and Docker…

Kubernetes is a powerful orchestration technology for deploying, scaling and managing distributed applications and it has taken the industry by storm over the past few years. However, due to its inherent complexity, relatively few enterprises have been able to realize the full value of Kubernetes; with 96% of enterprise IT organizations unable to manage Kubernetes on their own.

The coming end-of-support for Windows Server 2008 is the perfect opportunity for IT organizations to tap Docker Enterprise to modernize and secure legacy applications while saving millions in the process. THE END IS NIGH (FOR WINDOWS SERVER 2008) The coming end-of-support for Windows Server 2008 in January 2020 leaves IT organizations with a few viable options: migrate to a supported operating system (OS), rehost in Azure, or pay for an extended support contract (up to 75% of the license fee per year) to receive security updates beyond the cut-off date. The option of doing nothing (running applications on unsupported OS versions) is…
