Today at OSCON, Scott Hanselman, Kayla Cinnamon, and Yosef Durr of Microsoft demonstrated some of the new capabilities coming with Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) 2, including how it will be integrated with Docker Desktop. As part of this demonstration, we are excited to announce that users can now sign up for the end of July Docker Desktop Technical Preview of WSL 2. WSL 2 is the second generation of a compatibility layer for running Linux binary executables natively on Windows. Since it was announced at Microsoft Build, we have been working in partnership with Microsoft to deliver an improved…

When Docker Enterprise added support for Windows containers running on Swarm with the release of Windows Server 2016, we had to tackle challenges that are less pervasive in pure Linux environments.

Developers ranked Docker as the #1 most wanted platform, #2 most loved platform, and #3 most broadly used platform in the 2019 Stack Overflow Developer Survey. Nearly 90,000 developers from around the world responded to the survey. So we asked the community why they love Docker, and here are 10 of the reasons they shared:   It works on everyone’s machine. Docker eliminates the “but it worked on my laptop” problem. “I love docker because it takes environment specific issues out of the equation – making the developer’s life easier and improving productivity by reducing time wasted debugging issues that ultimately don’t…

There are over one million Dockerfiles on GitHub today, but not all Dockerfiles are created equally. Efficiency is critical, and this blog series will cover five areas for Dockerfile best practices to help you write better Dockerfiles: incremental build time, image size, maintainability, security and repeatability. If you’re just beginning with Docker, this first blog post is for you! The next posts in the series will be more advanced. Important note: the tips below follow the journey of ever-improving Dockerfiles for an example Java project based on Maven. The last Dockerfile is thus the recommended Dockerfile, while all intermediate ones are there only…

Docker Hub is home to the world’s largest library of container images. Millions of individual developers rely on Docker Hub for official and certified container images provided by independent software vendors (ISV) and the countless contributions shared by community developers and open source projects. Large enterprises can benefit from the curated content in Docker Hub by building on top of previous innovations, but these organizations often require greater control over what images are used and where they ultimately live (typically behind a firewall in a data center or cloud-based infrastructure). For these companies, building a secure content engine between Docker Hub and Docker…

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 –…
