3 Customer Stories You Don’t Want to Miss at DockerCon Barcelona 2018

One of the great things about DockerCon is the opportunity to learn from your peers and find out what they’re doing. We’re pleased to announce several of the sessions in our Customer Stories track. In the track, you’ll hear from your peers who are using Docker Enterprise to modernize legacy applications, build new services and products, and transform the customer experience. These are just a few of the sessions in the catalog today. You can browse the full list of sessions here. We also have a few more we’ll announce over the coming weeks (some customers just like to keep things under wraps for a little longer).

The Role of Enterprise Container Platforms

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 application come from? Was the application built with company and/or industry best practices in mind? Has this application undergone a security review? Is my cluster performing as expected? If my application is failing or underperforming, where should I look? Will Continue reading…

Hands-on Learning Opportunities at DockerCon EU

  The value of attending a conference is measured by how much you can learn and who you will meet. While DockerCon has you covered on both fronts. We know that everyone learns differently so the conference provides three options for you. Workshops: Starting this year at DockerCon San Francisco, we introduced a track dedicated to workshops where technical experts deliver 2-hour deep dive sessions with hands-on tutorials to deepen your understanding of Docker technology, Kubernetes, Isito and solutions from our ecosystem partners. Included as part of your conference pass, you must pre-register for workshops to save your seat.   Hands on Labs: I instructor-led isn’t your thing, check out the self-paced Hands-On Labs. Also included with our conference pass, Hands-On Labs are available at any time throughout the conference. Drop in between sessions or anytime – grab a seat and Continue reading…

Docker Certified Plugins From Networking Partners

The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations enterprises an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher.   In this review, we’re looking at Docker Network Plugins. Networking has long been a vertical in the enterprise cloud and data center that has no shortage of complexity. Just as an overarching goal of Docker Enterprise is to make deploying and operating containers as simple as possible, the same goal applies to making Swarm networking as simple as possible. This powerful abstraction of complexity, is applicable regardless of whether in the customers data center or spread across multiple clouds. In some cases Docker Enterprise solves Continue reading…

What We Heard About Containers and Windows Server App Migration at Microsoft Ignite

Ever since Microsoft CVP Erin Chapelle spoke about the future of Windows Containers at DockerCon earlier this year, there has been excitement around the general availability of Windows Server 2019. That announcement came last week at the Microsoft Ignite Conference in Orlando. Ignite was a tremendous opportunity for us to discuss the containerization journey with companies of all shapes and sizes. A central theme: what to do with large numbers of applications running today on Windows Server 2008, an operating system that will reach the end of its supported lifecycle in a mere 15 months. Here are some common questions discussed last week at Ignite: Q: What challenges do legacy Windows Server applications present? A: Legacy applications have several challenges: Fragile dependencies between the OS, application and other components Lost knowledge when original development teams move on. The stickiness of legacy .NET applications, with Continue reading…

Back By Popular Demand – Docker Pals Is Coming To Barcelona!

At DockerCon Copenhagen we launched the Docker Pals program in order to connect attendees and help them make the most out of their trip to DockerCon. Attending a conference by yourself can be intimidating and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at DockerCon! Pals get matched with a few others who are new (the “Pals”), and someone who knows their way around (the “Guide”) so that you will know someone before you arrive at the conference. So, DockerCon veterans, please consider signing up to be a Guide and help welcome those newer to DockerCon to the amazing Docker community. Participating gives you the opportunity to learn even more, grow an even bigger network, and have even more fun! Here’s what Pals had to say: “Docker Pals was an excellent opportunity to meet new Docker Captains and Community Leaders who Continue reading…
