Modern applications can come in many flavors, consisting of different technology stacks and architectures, from n-tier to microservices and everything in between. Regardless of the application architecture, the focus is shifting from individual containers to a new unit of measurement which defines a set of containers working together – the Docker Application. We first introduced Docker Application packages a few months ago. In this blog post, we look at what’s driving the need for these higher-level objects and how Docker Enterprise 3.0 begins to shift the focus to applications. Scaling for Multiple Services and Microservices Since our founding in 2013, Docker –…

Day 2 of our top blog posts of 2018 and coming in at Number 4 is the launch of Docker Enterprise 2.0 (formerly Docker Enterprise Edition). Docker’s industry-leading container platform is the only platform that simplifies Kubernetes and manages and secures applications on Kubernetes in multi-Linux, multi-OS and multi-cloud customer environments. To learn more about our Docker Enterprise, read on…     We are excited to announce Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 – a significant leap forward in our enterprise-ready container platform. Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 2.0 is the only platform that manages and secures applications on Kubernetes in multi-Linux, multi-OS and…

We recently hosted IDC research manager Gary Chen as a guest speaker on a webinar where he shared results from a recent IDC survey on container and container platform adoption in the enterprise. IDC data shows that more organizations are deploying applications into production using containers, driving the need for container platforms like Docker Enterprise that integrate broad management capabilities including orchestration, security and access controls. The audience asked a lot of great questions about both the IDC data and containerizing production applications. We picked the top questions from the webinar and recapped them here. If you missed the webinar, you…

As container technology adoption continues to advance and mature, companies now recognize the importance of an enterprise container platform. More than just a runtime for applications, a container platform provides a complete management solution for securing and operationalizing applications in containers at scale over the entire software lifecycle. While containers may have revolutionized the way developers package applications, container platforms are changing the way enterprises manage and secure both mission-critical legacy applications and microservices both on prem and across multiple clouds. Enterprises are beginning to see that container runtime and orchestration technologies alone don’t address these critical questions: Where did this…

Last week, the Docker team had a chance to interact with the attendees of VMworld to talk about containers and container platforms. We spoke to companies in all stages of their containerization journey – some were just getting started and figuring out where containers may be used, others had started early containerization projects, some had mature container environments. Here are some of the most common questions we were asked. Q: We have developers that are using Docker containers now, but what is the relevancy of containers to me (as an IT or virtualization admin)? A: While developers were the first to…

With 20,000 partners and attendees converging at VMworld in Las Vegas this week, we often get asked if containers are replacing virtual machines (VMs). Many of our Docker Enterprise customers do run their containers on virtualized infrastructure while others run it on bare metal. Docker provides IT and operators choice on where to run their applications – in a virtual machine, on bare metal, or in the cloud. In this blog we’ll provide a few thoughts on the relationship between VMs and containers.  Point #1: Containers Are More Agile than VMs At this stage of container maturity, there is very little…
