Docker Datacenter @ DockerCon 2016: Image security, Engine 1.12 and Burning Man…

Interested in learning more about our plans for Docker in the Enterprise and getting involved in an upcoming Docker Datacenter beta? Let’s take a deeper look. On the second day of DockerCon, the keynote used different situations to discuss enterprise use of Docker. Our CEO Ben Golub broke down several fallacies in IT, CTO Keith Fulton of ADP painted a delicious picture of microservices as chicken nuggets, and Lily and I… well, we averted a massive security disaster and got our costumes ready for Burning Man. Aside from shiny sequined jackets (not my normal wardrobe, I promise) and Ben’s enthusiastic “business guy” cameo, we presented a prototype of a future version of Docker Datacenter, our commercial solution for running containers-as-a-service (CaaS) in an on-premises or public cloud enterprise environment. Docker Datacenter is an integrated CaaS platform to securely ship, orchestrate and manage Dockerized Continue reading…

Exciting Docker Datacenter updates: Deploy Compose apps in UI, full stack HA and more

Today we are releasing exciting new capabilities to the products behind the Docker Datacenter subscription (DDC). Docker Datacenter allows organizations to deploy a Containers as a Service (CaaS) platform on-premises or in their virtual private cloud. From DevOps and CI/CD to orchestration and management of container applications, DDC provides a seamless way for devs and IT teams to work together to build, ship and run their apps anywhere. Our team has been heads down since the initial launch in late February, taking in feedback and building new features.  This release brings Universal Control Plane 1.1 (UCP), Docker Trusted Registry 2.0 (DTR), and incorporates the latest Docker Engine 1.11 into the subscription with commercial support. In this release we focused on adding features around ease of use and system hardening.

High Availability Architecture and Apps with Docker Datacenter (DDC)

High availability (HA) isn’t just about keeping the lights on all the time; it’s also about quickly turning them back on when they unexpectedly go out. With software, this means capabilities for fault tolerance as well as backup and recovery. Docker Datacenter (DDC) provides this for both the container-based applications as well as the application infrastructure components (such as cluster management, orchestration, account settings, etc.). In this post we will look at how high availability is achieved in the latest release of Docker Datacenter. As a refresher, Docker Datacenter is comprised of the following software: Universal Control Plane (UCP) with Swarm for cluster orchestration and management Docker Trusted Registry (DTR) for secure image collaboration and distribution Docker Engine with commercial support to run your containerized apps

Tutorial: Role Based Access Control in Universal Control Plane

It’s been an exciting time for us since we released Docker Datacenter a couple of week ago, which included the GA of Universal Control Plane (UCP), our on-premises or VPC deployable management and orchestration solution for containers. Thank you for the enthusiastic response, and we’ll continue to deliver enterprise-grade feature sets into the Docker Datacenter platform. One such feature we delivered in UCP 1.0 was Role Based Access Control (RBAC)—deciding and enforcing who gets access to which resources. This is a really important and complex component of commercial IT infrastructure. This tutorial walks through how the feature is implemented in UCP and demonstrating it with an example.
