What is Notary and why is it important to CNCF?

As you may have heard, the Notary project has been invited to join the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Much like its real world namesake, Notary is a platform for establishing trust over pieces of content. In life, certain important events such as buying a house are facilitated by a trusted third party called a “notary.” When buying a house, this person is typically employed by the lender to verify your identity and serve as a witness to your signatures on the mortgage agreement. The notary carries a special stamp and will also sign the documents as an affirmation that a notary was present and verified all the required information relating to the borrowers. In a similar manner, the Notary project, initially sponsored by Docker, is designed to provide high levels of trust  over digital content using strong cryptographic signatures. In addition Continue reading…

DockerCon Europe 2017 Highlights

DockerCon Europe 2017 is coming to an end and we’d like to thank all of the speakers, sponsors and attendees for contributing to the success of these amazing 3 days in Copenhagen. All the slides will soon be published on our slideshare account and all the breakout session videos recordings will soon be available on the docker website. DockerCon Day 1 Highlights On Tuesday, we announced that Docker will be delivering seamless integration of Kubernetes into the Docker platform. Adding Kubernetes support as an orchestration option (alongside Swarm) in both Docker Enterprise Edition, and in Docker for Mac and Windows will help simplify and advance the management of Kubernetes for enterprise IT and deliver the advanced capabilities of the Docker platform to a broader set of applications. To try the latest version of Docker Enterprise Edition, Docker for Mac and Windows with built-in Continue reading…

Docker Platform and Moby Project add Kubernetes

Today we’re announcing that the Docker platform is integrating support for Kubernetes so that Docker customers and developers have the option to use both Kubernetes and Swarm to orchestrate container workloads. Register for beta access and check out the detailed blog posts to learn how we’re bringing Kubernetes to: Docker Enterprise Edition Docker Community Edition on the desktop with Docker for Mac and Windows The Moby Project Docker is a platform that sits between apps and infrastructure. By building apps on Docker, developers and IT operations get freedom and flexibility. That’s because Docker runs everywhere that enterprises deploy apps: on-prem (including on IBM mainframes, enterprise Linux and Windows) and in the cloud. Once an application is containerized, it’s easy to re-build, re-deploy and move around, or even run in hybrid setups that straddle on-prem and cloud infrastructure. The Docker platform Continue reading…

Extending Docker Enterprise Edition to Support Kubernetes

At DockerCon Europe, we announced that Docker will be delivering seamless integration of Kubernetes into the Docker platform. Bringing Kubernetes to Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) will simplify and advance the management of Kubernetes for enterprise IT and deliver the advanced capabilities of Docker EE to a broader set of applications. Swarm and Kubernetes Side-by-Side Docker EE is an enterprise-grade container platform that includes a private image registry, advanced security features and centralized management for the entire container lifecycle. By including Kubernetes for container orchestration, customers will have the ability to run both Swarm and Kubernetes in the same Docker EE cluster while still leveraging the same secure software supply chain for building and deploying applications. Figure 1. Docker EE Architecture with Multiple Orchestrators This is possible because Docker EE has a modular architecture that is designed to support multiple orchestrators. The Linux nodes are both Continue reading…

Beta Docker for Mac and Windows with Kubernetes

Today, as part of our effort to bring Kubernetes support to the Docker platform, we’re excited to announce that we will also add optional Kubernetes to Docker Community Edition for Mac and Windows. We’re demoing previews at DockerCon (stop by the Docker booth!) and will have a beta program ready at the end of 2017. Sign up to be notified when the beta is ready. With Kubernetes support in Docker CE for Mac and Windows, Docker Inc. can provide customers an end-to-end suite of container-management software and services that span from developer workstations, through test and CI/CD through to production on-prem or in the cloud. Docker for Mac and Windows are the most popular way to configure a Docker dev environment and are used everyday by hundreds of thousands of developers to build, test and debug containerized apps. Docker for Mac Continue reading…

Videos series: Modernizing Java Apps for IT Pros

Today we start releasing a new video series in Docker’s Modernize Traditional Apps (MTA) program, aimed at IT Pros who manage, maintain and deploy Java apps. The video series shows you how to move a Java EE 7 application written to run on Wildfly 3, move it to a Docker container and deploy it to a scalable, highly-available environment in the cloud – without any changes to the app. This is a 5 part video series in Docker’s Modernize Traditional Apps (MTA) program, aimed at Java IT Pros. The video series shows you how to move a Java EE app on JBoss Wildfly to a Docker container and deploy it to a scalable, highly-available environment in the cloud – without any changes to the app. Part 1 introduces the series, explaining what is meant by “traditional” apps and the problems they present. Traditional apps Continue reading…

Least Privilege Container Orchestration

The Docker platform and the container has become the standard for packaging, deploying, and managing applications. In order to coordinate running containers across multiple nodes in a cluster, a key capability is required: a container orchestrator. Orchestrators are responsible for critical clustering and scheduling tasks, such as: Managing container scheduling and resource allocation. Support service discovery and hitless application deploys. Distribute the necessary resources that applications need to run. Unfortunately, the distributed nature of orchestrators and the ephemeral nature of resources in this environment makes securing orchestrators a challenging task. In this post, we will describe in detail the less-considered—yet vital—aspect of the security model of container orchestrators, and how Docker Enterprise Edition with its built-in orchestration capability, Swarm mode, overcomes these difficulties. Motivation and threat model One of the primary objectives of Docker EE with swarm mode is to provide Continue reading…
