Understanding Official Repos on Docker Hub

What are Official Repositories? Official Repositories (“Repos”) are a curated set of image repositories that contain content packaged and maintained directly by Docker, our upstream partners, and the broader community. The repository itself contains the same software you can get directly from the upstream project, but has been packaged as a Docker repository for distribution on Docker Hub. Currently, there are 74 Official Repos on Docker Hub, and these images have been pulled over 53 million times to build their applications.

Tips for Deploying NGINX (Official Image) with Docker

In the past year alone, the Docker community has created 100,000+ images and over 300+ million images have been pulled from Docker Hub to date.  Over 20 million of these pulls came from the 70+ Official Images that Docker develops in conjunction with upstream partners, like Oracle, CentOS, and NGINX. NGINX is used by over 40% of the world’s busiest websites and is an open-source reverse proxy server, load balancer, HTTP cache, and web server.  The official image on Docker Hub has been pulled over 3.4 million times and is maintained by the NGINX team. This post from NGINX provides a walkthrough on using the Docker Image to deploy the open-source version of NGINX.
